It’s time for Round 2 in our challenge to find the Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era! In our previous face-offs, Kelly Clarkson beat Taylor Swift by more than 13%. Lady Gaga conquered Christina Aguilera with an even wider margin: 35%! Now it’s the ‘American Idol’ champ against Mother Monster. Who has the greater pop song?
Kelly Clarkson’s ‘Since U Been Gone’ is both a power anthem and a chart-topper! The song proved that Kelly has a career far beyond her ‘Idol’ win, and even earned her a Grammy in 2006. But is it enough to take on one of the century’s biggest superstars?
Lady Gaga has quite a few hits on her resume, but none took the radio by storm quite like ‘Bad Romance.’ The chant-heavy track scored Gaga two Grammys. Did we mention it was certified 10-times platinum?
