As the conference championships are this weekend, not surprisingly the NFL made a stronger play for the top this week, moving into the top 5 but only barely. Lady Gaga remains on top, while Mr. Bieber slips a bit to make room for something I’ve yet to talk about despite its being on the countdown for a 3rd week now. That would be the large international snow and ice related competition occurring in the 3rd largest city in Canada. You know, the city where Mulder and Scully spent many seasons pretending it was every place in America.
Taylor Swift tumbles a bit from the top five, where she ends up next to fellow country star and list newcomer Jason Aldean. Jason has been touring in support of his Wide Open album, which was released in April 2009. He will be appearing in the list’s #6 entry, The Houston Rodeo, as will the esteemed Mr. Bieber. Houston Rodeo shows in general are very hot and March isn’t that far off.
Finally another newcomer and a list rarity, comedian Chelsea Handler appears at #10. Chelsea isn’t the rarity, just comedians in general, who don’t usually show up here. While she isn’t showing up at the Houston Rodeo, she is on tour nationwide through at least May.
