Thanks to her fans, Christina Aguilera has been crowned the About to Pop queen! The latest single from the vocal virtuoso, ‘Your Body,’ killed in last week’s poll, with more than 75% of the votes going to Xtina. Our newest About to Pop champ will receive 20+ radio spins this weekend on PopCrush’s nationwide radio show — check out a list of stations where you can tune in by clicking here.

So what’s in store for this week’s competition? Adam Lambert is nominated for ‘Trespassing,’ the Michael Jackson-esque, Pharrell Williams-produced title single from his second studio LP (which also happens to be one of our picks for the Best Albums of 2012). Cher Lloyd is also in the running for her second ‘Sticks + Stones’ single in the U.S., ‘Oath.’ The song features writer/rapper Becky G, and the bubbly, pop-rap, friendship ballad is another surefire hit for the British starlet.

But Adam and Cher have some big names to beat if they want to win this week’s About to Pop poll! Pink and No Doubt are both nominated for their newest singles, ‘Try’ and ‘Looking Hot,’ respectively. Pink’s outstanding vocals are at their finest on ‘Try,’ a synthy, midtempo track about picking yourself back up after heartbreak. And unlike their previous ‘Push and Shove’ single ‘Settle Down,’ No Doubt go back to their ska roots on ‘Looking Hot,’ which also delivers gritty guitars and a dancey rock vibe. Finally, we’ve got vocal powerhouse Melanie Amaro and her single ‘Don’t Fail Me Now,’ an inspiring, dance-pop track from the ‘X Factor‘ champ.

Which of these artists have won over your ears? Vote for Adam, Cher, Pink, No Doubt or Melanie below! The poll will remain open until Monday, Oct. 1 at 3PM EST — and don’t forget you can vote once per hour!
