Well, the basketball tournament that everyone is supposed to be following finally shows up this week. Yes, the Final Four is this weekend, and the NCAA Basketball Championship will be decided with a 5th seed guaranteed to be in the mix. While the NIT has been on the list for three weeks now, the Final Four has just arrived to the party. It brought a date, too; the Women’s Final Four slides in to round out the top 5.
The top 2 spots flipped, giving the esteemed Mr. Bieber the #1 position for the first time in his extended tenure on the countdown. One I admit was a bit longer than I anticipated. Lady Gaga follows with George Strait in tow at #3. In the bottom 5 we have 1 newcomer, a returning favorite, and where Taylor Swift, another list member with a lengthy tenure, is holding on.
Our newcomer #6 is Aubrey Drake Graham, who shortens thing up a bit and performs under the mononym Drake. The hip-hop hyphenate started as an actor on the show Degrassi: The Next Generation. Despite the name, I sense there were no Ferengi on this particular Next Generation. His new album is called Thank Me Later and is due out sometime this year. He’s currently on tour and will be playing Austin’s Stubbs BBQ at the end of May.
