Jonas Brothers should be number one. though Katy Perry... can you do a Please Explain post on her? i'd be curious as to what people say and i know i'm not the only one.

I don't know about Katy Perry - the first single was ok, but the new one is really catchy.

Girl Talk has already lasted 4 albums so I think he will stick around, and even if the hype is gone, he puts on a good show.

Bon Iver will be fine as well, his goal isn't mainstream success, he's just writing songs.

I was already tired of the Moldy Peaches in 2001 when they opened for the Strokes in Halloween costumes.

And Duffy = Joss Stone. By album #3 she will be reinventing her hair color since she can't reinvent her sound.

And MGMT, well they'll always be that boring band opening for of Montreal to me.

This blog post draws two Google ads for Led Zeppelin, and one for - Gucci?!? Will Gucci products be out of favor by 2011?
