We’ve brought you the top female and male musicians all week. The list ends today with two female artist who made quite a impact in ’09. One is an hellacious entertainer, the other is a charming Brit with a big voice.
#2 Britan’s own Susan Boyle is living a modern day fairytale. Surely, you couldn’t forget her transformation in Harper’s Bazaar?! The adorable 48-year-old charmed audiences the minute she stepped onstage UK’s X-Factor. She may not have won the “X-factor” title, but in the end Boyle became an huge superstar. In mid-December Boyle’s “I Dreamed A Dream” became the highest selling CD ever for a female artist on the Billboard 200 soundscan era, and the biggest selling album of 2009. The album even blocked music heavyweights Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blige from the coveted #1 slot.
#1. She shot to “Fame” with the pop smash single “Just Dance”. 2009, without question, was the year of Gaga. The eccentric blonde bombshell set the music world ablaze. Lady Gaga’s first CD offering shelled out 3 #1 singles. Of course you couldn’t bring up Lady Gaga without mentioning her eye-opening performances and questionable wardrobe choices. The “Bad Romance” singer is already embarking on a worldwide tour-something many artist aren’t able to do until later in their career. With a year full of many memorable moments for the 23-year-old, what will 2010 will bring for the unpredictable starlet?
