YES!!! I loved that you put Kid Cudi & Mr Hudson they are amazing!!!
What about Lady Gaga?
No Ke$ha? C'mon now!
Shinedown was one of my suggestions? I guess you didn't have enough people for them.
I LOVE DRAKE & YOUNG MONEY! He is so dream and his voice is actually really sexy. Thanks for featuring him!
YaY!!! I loved this list unlike the grammy's this one was actually relevant...who the hell cares about gloriana or mgmt?
Thanks for putting Alphabeat on there I voted for them!!! :)
I would of never guessed the girl from Glee as a best new artist but you are so right on with her...her voice is so amazing. It was a nice surprise.
Thanks for this I love your blog and your videos they are so amazing!
Avett Brothers or Chester French?
Okay although Diddy is not a new artist and Dawn was a part of Danity Kane I totally get your logic here...they are a new group "Dirty Money" and both their songs are amazing. Thanks for sharing the love. Also The Lonely Island!!! Love them!
We love ZBB and Lady A! GREAT music!
I am not a country music fan. With that said, I absolutely love this band. Watched the video and I said to myself, I hope the fame that this band will get in the future won’t change them. I hope they stay down to earth. That’s why I like them so much.
I love Zack Brown Band, best band to come out in a LONG time. Completely versatile, incredible musicians, great vocal harmonies, original music. They appeal to a really wide variety of people.
I love Keri Hilson so much> here is what I found on People.com today: Sure she's penned hits for Britney Spears and Usher and now has a best new artist Grammy nomination, but before taking the music scene by storm, Keri Hilson was involved in a little circus act. "I taught myself to juggle around [age] 11," the singer tells PEOPLE with a giggle. "I've always been pretty coordinated, but I won't do it on stage. I'd get way too nervous." She may have to pull out her juggling chops to keep another Grammy nominee, Lady Gaga, on her toes. The two are set to perform at Dick Clark's Rocking New Year's Eve. "We played each other our first singles before she released and I released," recalls Hilson, 27, of the girls' history. "We hooked up on a chance meeting in the studio with Rodney Jerkins."One thing that wasn't by chance? Hilson's rise to fame this year. The Atlanta native's album In a Perfect World… produced hit singles "Turnin Me On" and "Knock You Down" and debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart. Her Grammy nomination, she says, is the cherry on top. "It's a dream come true. I was fighting back tears. My phone died and when I charged it back I heard 'new message, new message.' Text messages from people telling me congrats would not stop for almost a minute straight."
What about Darrius Rucker? He is amazing...and Zack Brown Band is old as hell! Sorry.
Lady GaGa has a long career ahead of her. Amazing talent, wonderful writing, diverse influences. She’s far from the top of her game.
Have you heard of VV Brown? You have to she is amazing!!
La Roux didn't make it? Why!? She is amazing and like 1000X better than B.S. and Lady GaGa!
Even though you may not love his music I think that Asher Roth deserved a chance to be the best new artist...everyone was rocking out to his music.
Owl City is just amazing. I hate that they are not on this and 3oh3! is!
Did you forget so early...DAVID COOK!! He is amazing!
mgmt all the way...why did you not include them?
ART!!! Kevid Rudolf! He is so cool and original...why didn't you include him?
Totally underrated but totally genius: this years robyn:diane birch you have to look her up and include her!
Grizzly Bear by Veckatimest was genious. They deserve it all the way.
Hands-down best new artist i've seen/heard is lykki li. That more don't know of her is an indictment of the moribund recording industry
I totally get the whole keri hilson thing, she had a bunch of hot singles and collaborations and it was like non-stop keri hilson since feb.
The music industry has been dead for over a decade. Autotone was the last nail in the coffin. It made it so "artists" don't even have to know how to sing anymore. When Brittney Spears had her first hit I knew that there was no coming back. Who's the new flavor of the month/year? Taylor Swift? The latest in precisely manufactured "music". She has the girl next door look. She's pretty and beautiful, but not too sexy. She is absolutely bathed in innocence. She's so sweet. She loves her Daddy and Jesus. She sings about Romeo and Juliet getting married. Her songs are the epitome of cliche pop garbage. Blech. I think the term "music industry" as it refers to the business is an oxymoron. It's not about music anymore. It's about who looks good and can sell the most to middle school/high school kids. Another example, don't worry it will be the last, of how music producers need to be clubbed mercilessly. The band The Offspring had the best selling independent album of all time in Smash. My personal opinion, the whole album rocked! They got hitched to a major label. Then they came out with "Pretty Fly for a White Guy". Again, Bleecchhh.
David Cook. A platinum album & a year long tour. Most of his shows have been sold out!
Silversun Pickups all the way here.
KERI HILSON all the way...if you base somebody on the most success this year she wins.
dirty money really? you are crazy
keri hilson and drake are really safe choices but i love that you put that girl from glee she is amazing.
Drake is amazing and lady gaga too but I think she was on your list last year.
I agree that asher roth deserves more recognition and i agree with all of your choices.
I love that song by mr. hudson and kanye...also i love the song by keri hilson
How can you go wrong with a list featuring Zac Brown Band? :) Thanks for reppin' the country folks.
The alphabeats are such a guilty pleasure her voice is just amazing. Thanks.
Total guilty pleasure but I loved Jason DeRulo although its overplayed!
Melanie Fiona is so cool...like a cucumber! Thanks for giving her some love.
