What do you think? Will You Pick Up Adam’s Album?
This year more than ever the Grammy’s went pop. Which makes this genré the most important of them all and will prove as the descision point for the Big Four categories. See what we pick, and comment below, who do you think will take home the pop trophies?
Best Female Pop Vocal Performance
▪ “King of Anything” – Sara Bareilles
▪ “Halo” (Live) – Beyoncé
▪ “Chasing Pirates” – Norah Jones
▪ “Bad Romance” – Lady Gaga
▪ “Teenage Dream” – Katy Perry
Of the pop categories, this one had the weakest selection of all. Beyoncé’s Halo should not be eligible as it won this category last year, and Chasing Pirates is an obscure song both lyrically and melodically and failed to crack any pop chart this year. And isn’t that what Pop music stands for? Popular. On the contrary the other three nominees are all perfect picks for this year; King is a simple traditional pop song, Romance is a high production smash hit, and Teenage Dream is a fun, summer, song (and this is one of the few categories where that is acceptable).

Teenage Dream by Katy Perry has great production and a killer dance beat, perfect for a pop song.
Bad Romance was the biggest snub in both Record and Single of the Year the academy will likely award Gaga for her groundbreaking, heavy synth tune.
Best Male Pop Vocal Performance
▪ “Haven’t Met You Yet” – Michael Bublé
▪ “This Is It” – Michael Jackson
▪ “Whataya Want from Me” – Adam Lambert
▪ “Just the Way You Are” – Bruno Mars
▪ “Half of My Heart” – John Mayer

According to this week’s sales figures American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox has eclipsed winner Lee DeWyze in album sales this week. Crystal released her debut Farmer’s Daughter on Dec. 14, while DeWyze released Live it Up on Nov. 16. Ouch!
Crystal outsold Lee in their intial frame on the chart selling 58k and 19k respectively. Lee’s on the other hand debuted at a higher position, #19; Crystal debuted at #28.
This week Crystal’s cumlitave sales reach 104k surpassing Lee’s total of 102k. Do not get too excited though. Last year’s runner-up Adam Lambert sold 198k in his first week on the charts. It looks as though Idol will really need to produce a superstar this year in order to stay relevant.
What do you think? Did you buy Crystal’s album or Lee’s?
