BILLBOARD HOT 100 MARCH MADNESS - WINNER: BRITNEY SPEARS AND WILL.I.AM!
After three weeks of voting and hundreds of thousands of responses, “Scream And Shout” wins the second annual Hot 100 March Madness this year! It’s Britney’s second victory after our-home-girl claimed the 2012 crown with “Hold It Against Me!
“From April 1, 2012 through the charts dated March 9, 2013, there have been exactly 32 songs that appeared in the Top 5 of the Hot 100 chart. The head-to-head match-ups within this year’s bracket were decided arbitrarily, and after four rounds of voting throughout the month of March, “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” and “Scream & Shout” emerged from their respective sides of the bracket.”
“Scream & Shout” defeated One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful,” Maroon 5′s “One More Night,” Katy Perry’s “Wide Awake,” P!nk’s “Blow Me (One Last Kiss)” and Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” in final round with 84% of votes.
Congrats Team S&S and thank to all the fans who voted to get our girl the number one!
