Semi-Final Round-up of Catchiest Song ’09

ladyg@ZackTeibloom It’s Lady Gaga’s world. We’re just living in it. Did that make anyone else nauseous? Sorry, but it’s true. If this contest proved nothing else, it’s that we’ll remember ’09 as the year we lost MJ and found Gaga. Before @Mattsilver got mad that his bracket was about to go down in flames and generated a handful of votes, Lady G was shutting “Right Round” completely out with “Pokerface.” And that was just a day after taking Jay-Z and his “Empire State of Mind” out.

We’re down to four. Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” takes on “Birthday Sex,” who somehow snuck into the final four. The winner gets to take on Gaga in one form or another. Let’s be honest, you care more about how you’re doing. Since my fantasy season’s over,* I poured over the brackets and analyzed what would happen with every potential outcome from here on out. We’re down to four songs and four of you fighting it out for best bracket. Curious who it is? The standings are below, but after I crunched the numbers, only four of you have a shot. And it’s not who you think. For the second year in a row, me and Andy don’t even have a chance heading into Final Four play. Who said we were pop experts**? There are three scenarios that can play out from here. Here’s what happens with each one.

  1. If “Party in the USA” wins, Abby N. will come out of nowhere to take the prize. Even if it’s Party over Paparazzi. She swept through round two and has a three point lead on anyone.
  2. If “Pokerface” beats party in the USA, it’s a “Field of Dreams” for the SIT’s of ’02 as Zelin and J Ho split the crown.
  3. Here’s the Cinderella story we’ve been waiting for. If “Paparazzi” sneaks past Jeremih’s “Birthday Sex” in a series of upsets, our own FC NOLA chapter member Sami takes the cake (and by cake, I mean a bunch of vinyl and CD’s)
