Adam Lambert Crowned the PopCrush Prince of Pop 2016
And the winner is...
You came, you voted, you conquered: Boasting a whopping 44.7% of all votes, pop-rocker Adam Lambert has been crowned your Prince of Pop 2016! Thanks for voting, and congratulations Glamberts—no wonder you were voted the Best Fanbase of 2016 during March Music Madness.
PS: Don't forget to vote for the 2016 Princess of Pop, too!
ORIGINAL POLL POST (SEPTEMBER 4): Michael Jackson. Elton John. Prince.
Over the decades, male pop superstars like Phil Collins and Justin Timberlake have ruled the airwaves, reigning as pop kings and pop royalty — though we all know the official title of King of Pop belongs to Jackson — alongside their hip hop, rap and rock n' roll counterparts.
But in the new young crop of pop stars in 2016, who reigns as the crown prince?
There's no denying Justin Bieber is a years-groomed radio juggernaut ("Sorry," anyone?), and of course Nick Jonas knows a thing or two about princedom himself from his years working with Disney.
But what about former One Direction member Zayn Malik, who rules over his own mini kingdom of devoted fans and Directioners? Or American Idol alum Adam Lambert? Or Top 40 wiz Bruno Mars?
Place your vote for the Prince of Pop below, but hurry—this poll closes at midnight on September 12. Poll is now closed.
