Which Hit Should Win the 2014 Kids’ Choice Award for Favorite Song? — Readers Poll
Uh-oh! Some of our favorites are once again going head-to-head for the title of Favorite Song at the 2014 Kids’ Choice Awards! This battle is between Taylor Swift’s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble,’ Katy Perry’s ‘Roar,’ One Direction’s ‘Story of My Life’ and Miley Cyrus’ ‘Wrecking Ball.’ Which hit is most deserving of the 2014 KCA blimp for Favorite Song?
Taylor Swift‘s ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ was a huge hit for the singer and took her in a different direction than her previous country or more “pop”-sounding tunes. ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ has more of a rocker vibe, which helped to secure Swift’s new, more grown-up image for her album ‘Red.’ The song achieved great success, charting at No. 1 worldwide. Awkwardly enough, the tune was supposedly written about Swift’s ex-BF Harry Styles, who is also a nominee in this category.
Next up is ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry, a catchy, inspirational power anthem. The song, the lead single off of Perry’s 2013 album ‘PRISM,’ was an enormous success for the singer — garnering her two Grammy Award nominations and even going a whopping 6x platinum. ‘Roar’ has since become one of the best-selling singles worldwide.
‘Story of My Life’ by One Direction marked yet another hit for the British boy band, though this particular tune showcases their maturity and evolving style, turning away from pure, bubblegum pop like ‘What Makes You Beautiful’ and instead careening toward a more mature path. ‘Story of My Life’ has been certified platinum and has topped the charts across several countries.
Miley Cyrus may be well-known for her wild behavior and crazy onstage antics, but ‘Wrecking Ball’ is the kind of song that reminds us just how powerful her voice is. The power ballad, the second single off of her ‘Bangerz’ album, is raw, emotional and real — and proves that Cyrus really can sing. And, needless to say, the synonymous music video only helped boost the song’s popularity, which peaked in the No. 1 spot across the charts.
