BRACKET MADNESS: Michael Jackson Is VH1′s Greatest Male Artist!

Polls are closed, the numbers are in and we are very proud to announce that you have voted Michael Jackson to be the VH1′s Greatest Male Artist! Before he could claim his crown, Jackson had to beat out many other worthy fellows. He faced-off with his talented protégé Usher and the glamorous Adam Lambert in early rounds; and he went head-to-head Lil Wayne, the Best Rapper Alive, in the final and toughest round. And still he took the title easily, winning in the end by a landslide. They don’t call him the King of Pop for nothing, you know. Read more…

BRACKET MADNESS: Is Michael Jackson Or Lil Wayne The Greatest Male Aritst?

At the beginning of our Bracket Madness for the greatest male artist it seemed like an impossible task to choose just one of the eight contenders. Round after round you voted, and its come down to Michael Jackson vs. Lil Wayne. An unlikely pairing, but an intriguing match-up nonetheless. The King of Pop going toe-to-toe for a crown with the self-proclaimed “best rapper alive since the best rapper retired” is certainly a modern day spin on music. Read more…

BRACKET MADNESS: Do You Go Crazy For Justin Timberlake’s Hits Or Weezy’s Crazy Flow?

This next Bracket Madness face-off finds Lil Wayne going up against Justin Timberlake; Wayne’s ever expanding catalog against Justin’s carefully tailored hits.

But we are here to crown just one, so which of the two deserves the title? As we mentioned, polls for this round of Bracket Madness will be open until MONDAY at 4PM, meaning you now have a few extra days to mull over who you think deserves the Greatest Male Artist crown.

BRACKET MADNESS: JT, Lil Wayne, Lambert And MJ Face-off In Round Two!

If there is one thing that the four male artists in Round 2 in our latest edition of Bracket Madness have in common, it is that they each swept the floor with their opponent in Round 1. Justin Timberlake said “Bye Bye Bye” to Justin Bieber, getting 81% of the vote to Biebs’s 18%. Kanye West posed a bit more of a challenge for Lil Wayne, but Weezy still won his round with more than half the vote! Daughtry didn’t stand a fighting chance against Adam Lambert, who won with a whopping 77% of the votes. And Oprah’s latest Usher interview did nothing to convince voters, as he lost to Michael Jackson who got 83% of the vote.

Here’s where things get tough … Timberlake is facing Weezy in Round 2 and Lambert is taking on the King of Pop himself. So how do you decide? Aside from following your heart, here are a few facts about each of the artists that may help sway your vote …

BRACKET MADNESS: Which Justin Does It Better, Timberlake Or Bieber?

This new bout of Bracket Madness finds your favorite male artists going head to head — or maybe hit to hit — for the Greatest title, and this first round pits two of pop’s best against one another. When it comes to pop, none have done it — the singing, the dancing, the heart breaking — better than the Justins. Justin Timberlake came first, and Justin Bieber is growing as fast as he can to fill the shadow Timberlake left when he shifted gears to acting and also to create a mark of his own. Surely, both these men are great male artists, but if only one Justin can be the Greatest Male Artist, which should it be?

BRACKET MADNESS: Do “U Got It Bad” For Usher Or Michael Jackson?

For our latest edition of Bracket Madness, we’re doing the unthinkable by matching up Michael Jackson and Usher. It seems almost blasphemous to pit the King of Pop against his young protégé whose career has been heavily influenced by the former. But here on Tuner, we love doing the unexpected.

There hasn’t been an artist as globally loved as Michael Jackson. Not to mention the fact that he’s recognized as the most successful entertainer of all time by the Guinness World Records. His star power is seemingly unmatched. MJ’s music was so great that naming all of the records he’s broken would take a Biblical scroll and hours upon hours that no one has. His 1982 album Thriller is the greatest selling record of all-time. Classic songs like “Rock With You,” “Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough” and “Billie Jean” transcend generations, making a party full of early twentysomethings dance and sing wildly as if no one else were around. His dance moves (including the famous moonwalk!) have been emulated by some of today’s biggest stars, but no one does it like Mike. And his videos were epic short movies. When an MJ video premiered the family sat around the TV to watch it together. He truly was a once in a lifetime artist. Read more…

BRACKET MADNESS: In Battle Of The American Idol Alumni, Do You Prefer Lambert’s Glam Or Daughtry’s Brawn?

One thing that’s for sure is that it takes more than just a little bit of talent or luck to make it to the Top Ten on American Idol. Year in and year out, the show has churned big stars who have been super successful in the music industry, whether or not they actually won the show. No worse for their early exits, Chris Daughtry and Adam Lambert are two such Idol alumni who have proven themselves winners beyond the competition, racking up album sales and Grammy nods galore. Daughtry and Lambert have already proven themselves worthy competitors on Idol, but how will they fare in the battle for VH1′s Greatest Male Artist? This first round of voting pits the two Idol alums against each other, but only one can move on to the next round. Who should it be? Read more…
