On Monday we kicked off the VH1’s Pop Queen Faceoff with a “qualifying” round of voting to determine the 8 ladies who would advance towards the crown. Now the numbers have been tallied and we’re ready to announce the competitors. Did your favorite diva make it to the next round? Read on to find out! Drum roll, please…
Britney Spears completely dominated the qualifying round, with more than a third of the vote (27k, y’all!), but Lady Gaga and Madonna also made strong showings with over 16,000 and 9,000, respectively. Calm down, Beyhive— it’s still anybody’s game!
To keep it fair (and interesting), in the next round we’re going to have each lady face off in the peak year of their career (because Glitter-era Mariah versus meat-dress era Gaga is just cruel, right?). VH1’s resident super fans are going to rep their pick with all of the passion and persuasion they can muster. Check out the game day schedule below.
Monday, October 27th: Madonna (1985) Vs. Rihanna (2011)
Tuesday, October 28th: Janet Jackson (1990) Vs. Mariah Carey (1995)
Wednesday, October 29th: Britney Spears (1999) Vs. Lady Gaga (2009)
Thursday, October 30th: Beyonce (2014) Vs. Katy Perry (2010)
So round up your fellow fans and come back to VOTE! Polls close at noon on Sunday, November 2nd!
We’ll see you back here on Monday…
