April 7, 2014


Billboard not only brings us the latest in music news, but it brings us one of the hottest award shows of the year. Well, this year Billboard is giving us a chance to pick one of the 6 artists they narrowed it down to, who will receive the coveted Milestone Award!

The 6 artists that have been selected by Billboard are not only innovative, they are always breaking the chart barriers and have always connected with their fans. Last years winner was not only all of these things and more, he was our very own Justin Bieber! And since we have a choice in the winner, I think it only fitting that we vote… Right?!


The first of the six nominees is not only an amazing artist, but he has given women across the world the perfect wedding song! John Legend has spent countless weeks on the charts with his ballad “All of Me” which was inspired by is wife, reaching number 3 on the Hip/Hop charts as well as the Hot 100. Legend has always shown gratitude towards his fans, and has always been a hit-maker! If you love John, make sure you vote for him!


The second artist on the list is the sweet and talented Ellie Goulding! With her hit song “Lights” hitting number 2 on the Hot 100 list, it is no wonder she is nominated! After “Lights” she transitioned to more club style music with two more number 1 hits ” I Need Your Love” and more recently “Burn”. Goulding won the hearts of her fans when she produced her music video to “Burn” with fan vines of the hit single. If you want to see Ellie take home the Milestone Award, make sure she gets your vote!


American Idol winner with those killer legs to match is nominee number 3. Carrie Underwood, who can easily be deemed “Americas’ Sweetheart” tops charts with every single she does. Being the first country artist to have 18 singles in the top 10 Billboard Country charts she shows just what she’s made of! Not to mention how gracefully she is making the transition from one stage to the next! Underwood was recently cast in the adaptation of “The Sound of Music Live!” If you want to see this American Idol turned Country sensation grab the Milestone Award, make sure to cast your vote for her!


Continuing with Country sensations is the rump shaking Luke Bryan. It’s no wonder why he is a hit with the ladies, his rump is recognizable just about anywhere, and he is proud of it! But it is more than just his dance moves making a name for Bryan, his smash “Crash My Party” had the biggest sales week for a Country album by a male since 2004. The album sold an impressive 528,000 copies in the first week, landing it at the number 1 spot on Billboard 200! If you want Luke to shake it on stage winning the Milestone Award makes sure you vote for him!


After making things “Radioactive” at the Grammy’s with Kendrick Lamar our next nominee has been at the top of Billboard charts for some time now. Imagine Dragons have teamed up with Kendrick Lamar for various performances of their smash single – the single that has had the longest run ever on the Billboard Hot 100. With Imagine Dragons unique way to win fans over – Kinetic shows, and their 10 hits on the Hot Rock Songs chart, they are another perfect nominee for the Milestone Award! If they have won you over, make sure they get your vote!


Last, but certainly not least on our list of nominees is the group One Republic. One Republic not only produces great hits, their front man Ryan Tedder is responsible for writing songs for the likes of: BeyoncĂ©, Adele, Ludacris, and fellow nominee Carrie Underwood. With them having worked with such great names, they definitely have reached milestones! They have also earned the highest charting Billboard 200 album with “Native”, and well as “Counting Stars” reaching number 1 on Radio Songs! If you want One Republic to count stars all the way to the stage, make sure you vote for them!

If you see any artist you love make sure to vote for them by mid-April, as voting for the top 3 ends then! You can vote at the link posted below!
