Congratulations to Coldplay and the Script, who have advanced to Round 2 in PopCrush's Battle of the Brits! Both bands have that pop-driven, alt rock sound, and both have an army of devoted fans, which should make this round of voting interesting.
This week, Kesha is moving on up the Top 20 Songs with her latest single 'Die Young,' our pick for the Top Song of 2012 so far for it's irresistible beat and sing-along lyrics. While she moves up to No. 5 on the countdown, the Script are just making their debut for 'Hall of Fame,' their will.i.am-featured single. It's nice to hear the Irish trio making their rounds on the charts again!
Congrats are in order for Marina and the Diamonds, who took the About to Pop win this week with 'Primadonna'! Marina had an overwhelming amount of fan votes and absolutely killed the competition, which means 'Primadonna' will get 20+ spins on our radio show this weekend. Congratulations again!
Just like the mentors on the U.S. edition of 'The Voice' kicked off their season with a Prince medley, the mentors on 'The Voice U.K.' pulled off a live group performance on the series premiere of the show over the weekend.
The Script closed out their recent run of tour dates on June 8 at the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston, Mass. The trio has been touring the world since February, kicking off in Germany; their epic finish was the ‘Today’ Show Summer Concert Series on Friday.
