With nearly 25,000 votes already cast, the battle for the VH1 Greatest Male Artist is on! In this second round pits the swoony Justin Timberlake against the oh so swaggy Lil Wayne, and the ever glamorous Adam Lambert against the King of Pop Michael Jackson. Each so worthy of the crown, the choice is almost impossible and so we’ve decided to extend this round of voting until MONDAY at 4PM. So vote, vote, vote, and then check back then to see which artists have made it to the final round!
It’s no real surprise that Jackson and Lambert are racking in the votes that they are, both being total powerhouses in the pop world and both with very loyal fans behind them. But if only one of the two can make it on to the next round of Bracket Madness, who should it be?
At current, Lambert is the most glam doing it. Out there shaking things up with his ever-changing hair, his dynamic vocals and his army of ever loyal fans; performing covers and with Queen; and tearing up the charts with hits like “Never Close Your Eyes” and “Whataya Want From Me.”
Jackson, for his part, forever changed the pop-landscape with his eccentricities, his high notes and his criminally smooth moves. Thriller went 29 times platinum and has been received by the Library of Congress as a culturally significant recording; and acclaimed director Spike Lee is currently readying a documentary for the the 25th anniversary of Bad that’s said to feature everyone from Stevie Wonder and Quincy Jones to Kanye West and Justin Bieber, a true testament to the fact that nearly everyone performing today is doing so under his influence. They don’t call Jackson the King of Pop for nothing.
So who should it be? Polls close on Monday at 4PM, so vote now and check back then to see who makes it to the final round of Bracket Madness!
