Robin Thicke‘s “Blurred Lines” might be the song even your grandmother knows by heart, but Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, and Demi Lovato have all had a major role in helping pop dominating the news cycle this summer. These former Disney starlets were each formiddable competition in our Battle of the Summer Jams, but their individual efforts have gone beyond studio time and album promotion as each young woman is carving her own path in this crazy universe of ours.
You can’t always get what you want. Due to tonsillitis, Demi Lovato has had to pull out of this year’s Philly 4th Of July Jam.

Welcome to the third week of VH1?s Battle of the Summer Jams. We are almost one month into summer and several songs are making a go at the top of the charts. Last week the hashtag songs made a go at it. However, Will.i.am had no shot against Mariah Carey, who dominated with 88 percent of the vote. “#Beautiful” looks to be Mariah’s comeback after all. This week former Disney starlets are battling it out with their summer comeback jams. Instead of two, we are pitting three against each other: Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez and Demi Lovato.
Miley Cyrus, “We Can’t Stop”
Is this song about Molly? Is it about her crazy lifestyle? Who cares, it’s surprisingly infectious. Imagine if Rihanna had sang it and it would make total sense.
Selena Gomez, “Come And Get It”
Gomez is back after an extended hiatus from music. Her return is a mix of Bollywood and pop perfection that’s reminiscent of Mandy Moore’s “In My Pocket.”
Demi Lovato, “Heart Attack”
Even though this song came out a few months ago, the song is still burning up the charts and with reason. The song has some legs to it and staying power.
Time to vote!
Check us out next Friday for the results and your chance to vote on the battle of foreign imports.
