The semi-finals for VH1’s Pop Queen Faceoff begins today with Britney Spears taking on Rihanna! Want to know who else made it to the next round? Read on the find out! One thing’s definitely for sure: there was a major jaw-dropping upset.

Despite a strong showing, Lady Madonna got the boot with just four hundred fewer votes that BadGalRiri.  Sorry Madge, expect some flowers from us shortly (NOT HYDRANGEAS). Tomorrow Janet Jackson will take on Beyonce for a shot at the finals. Did Queen Bey call it with her Rhythm Nation Halloween costume last week? We like to think she did.

The winners of the semi-finals will go on to compete in the finals on Wednesday, so get out there and VOTE! Polls close at 12:01 AM on Wednesday, 11/5. May the best diva win…
