The categories in PopCrush's 2013 Battle of the Brits have some pretty heated competition. In this match, British music-makers Alex Clare and Passenger are going head-to-head in a fan-vote battle for the title of best singer-songwriter. Which of these guys gets your vote to move on to Round 2 of Battle of the Brits?
Alex Clare has a ridiculously catchy and insanely often-played single with 'Too Close.' In case you're a little tired of hearing it but still love him -- as seems to be the case with many -- have no fear. Clare is planning a new album as soon as June 2013. (For the record, Clare doesn't mind the constant airplay: "It's awesome that it's being played constantly. Every time I turn on my radio, it's there!")
Big changes in the Top 20 Songs for Aug. 26 - Sept. 2, 2012! Not only are Alex Clare and Taylor Swift making debuts -- with 'Too Close' and 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,' respectively -- but Katy Perry has also been dethroned! Her tune 'Wide Awake' was bumped by Ellie Goulding's 'Lights,' which has been out for over a year, but is just starting to gain momentum now.
