It’s Friday, so let’s get into that Brandy! No, not that brandy, you sophisticated lushes. I’m talking about the R&B singer whose singles probably were the soundtrack to your adolescence. Quit waxing nostalgic about sitting up in your room long enough to vote in today’s Friday Face-Off Music Video poll. You decide which Brandy jam you’re down for the most: ”I Wanna Be Down” or “Put It Down.” Okay, now have that drink while we make our case for each.
Audition rounds are over, but the battle is just beginning for the competitors of X Factor and The Voice. And now we’ll really see how the mentoring skills of those shows respective pop-stars-turned-reality-TV-judges, Britney Spears and The Voice’s Christina Aguilera, hold up.
We’ve been pitting them head-to-head in that age-old Britney vs. Christina rivalry each week, declaring one the ultimate star spotter. So pick a side then rip into both with us in our comments section.
It’s Friday, you’re tired of your job and you have nothing else to do while your Lean Cuisine heats up in the microwave. So, take a second to vote for today’s Friday Face-Off Music Video. In a Halloween-themed match-up, Chris Brown‘s “Wall To Wall” is up against Backstreet Boys‘ “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back).” You can vote below to determine which video is the most eerily entertaining, but first, it’s time to entertain the case for each each video.
If you’re over TV talent show audition rounds, say “do-re-mi!” That sounded a little off-key, but we won’t judge. What we will critique are the skills of our favorite pop-stars-turned-reality-TV-judges, X Factor‘s Britney Spears and The Voice‘s Christina Aguilera.
We’ve been pitting them head-to-head each week to decide who is the master star spotter on her respective show. As always, we name our winner, but feel free to affect your best Simon Cowell impression and rip into both in our comments section.
Sassiest Comment: “I think Sister C’s annoying. Really not likeable.” While everyone else was gushing over the new generations’ Dixie Chicks, Britney was the lone voice of dissent Read more…
We’ve been keeping tabs on The X Factor and The Voice for no other reason than to have fun with the rivalry that will never get old Britney Spears vs. Christina Aguilera . This time instead of who’s the best pop superstar, we’ve been pitting them head-to-head to see who is the best judge on her respective singing competition show. As always we invite you to speak your mind about who was the better judge.
For every Michael, Beyoncé and Usher, there’s a Christina, Mariah or Rihanna. Try as they might, the latter group of hot pop acts just can’t coordinate that whole singing-while-dancing thing. Their beats and belting may be tight on the radio, but when it comes to rocking dance moves in a music video, even some of the best sirens fall flat. For your amusement, check out these hilarious GIFs (you’re welcome) of crooners we adore who demonstrate some of the worst rump shaking we’ve ever seen. Debate our list in the comments below and, more importantly, let us know whose lack of rhythm we failed to catch.
Moroccan and Monroe weren’t even zygotes yet, but Mariah looks like she was practicing serious mom moves in this video. Luckily, Mimi’s vocal acrobatics helped us shake off the memory of her awful wannabe thug life bleacher rocking, so all is forgiven.
The addition of Britney Spears to The X-Factor judging panel did more than boost ratings for the Simon Cowell-helmed talent show. It reignited one of the greatest pop rivalries of all time: Britney vs. Christina Aguilera. With X-Tina back as a judge on rival hit talent show The Voice, the pop juggernauts are, once again, going head-to-head to see who is the best judge after years of duking it out on the charts.
Of course we’re going to help stir the pot a little by combing through Britney and Christina’s commentary, comebacks and and crazy moments on their respective shows each week to decide who was the better judge. You can join in by voting for who you think was the bigger star, too.

Some old outtake footage of One Direction‘s “What Makes You Beautiful” video has picked up a bit of buzz lately. Why? The British fab-hair five sang a cover of Oasis‘ “Wonderwall!” Now take a minute to reconcile the fact that the most successful UK act between 1995 and 2005 was just covered by the tour de force of English boy bands whose members were likely between the ages of one and three when the track was first released.
So, in honor of the return of the show that has made me the queen of pop culture trivia over the years, I used the fabulous create-your-own Pop Up Video player to add some fun facts (read: I found them on Wiki and made the rest up) to All-4-One’s “I Can Love You Like That.” I passed it along to my friends on Facebook and Twitter, who added their own comments. Hilarity ensued. And, because we know you’re as hungry for some 1990s R&B smooth grooves as Anne Hathaway was for food while she was on that Les Miserable diet, check out our video above and add your own Pop Ups. Then head over to popup.vh1.com, if you’re feeling inspired, and show us what you’ve got.
