It's a battle for the best song of the 1980s, as Michael Jackson's 'Billie Jean' takes on Cyndi Lauper's 'Girls Just Want to Have Fun' in our March Music Madness tournament. They topped tunes from Madonna, Prince, U2, Paula Abdul, Bon Jovi and Janet Jackson to face off for the title of Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era.
Things are heating up in the second round of March Music Madness, as the most iconic tracks by the most iconic artists of the 1980s go head to head to win your votes for the title of Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era. Famous frenemies born just 13 days apart, the King of Pop and the Material Girl take on each other with the dance-pop singles that made them global sensations.
March Music Madness is in full swing, with your votes determining which tune will be named the Greatest Pop Song of the Modern Era. For this round, it's truly a battle royal, with music royalty (the King of Pop) pitted against music royalty (Prince).
Michael Jackson and Justin Bieber -- the King of Pop and the reigning crown prince who many think (or thought) is in line to inherit MJ's crown -- have a lot in common. Apparently, the Biebs relates to how Jackson was persecuted and put upon by the media, thanks to a photo he posted on his Instagram.
The King of Pop and its crown prince --that'd be the late and much-missed Michael Jackson and Justin Bieber -- collaborated on a song called 'Slave 2 the Rhythm,' and it's almost too much pop awesomeness to handle. You'll be left clutching that ticker in your chest, since it sounds exactly like what you'd expect a Jackson-Biebs collabo to sound like.
