It’s DAY TWO of the MARCH MADNESS FINAL FOUR, with two great matchups taking place that will determine who will be crowned as the best female artist in the world.
Yesterday, Jill Scott and Ledisi showed up and showed out in one bracket (EAST Vs. SOUTH). Today we get what some would think could be the final: LISA STANSFIELD INTERNATIONAL DIVISION winner and #1 seed Sade Vs. ARETHA/ETTA MID/WEST DIVISION champion and #2 seed Erykah Badu. Throw into the mix that both young ladies have new music that’s front and center right now, and we have the potential for a battle royale.
You can still vote for yesterday’s matchup and see how you can have a chance at winning your favorite artist’s CD HERE. Right now, let’s get to the music, as the FINAL FOUR rolls on, with the final taking place this Thursday and a CHAMPION being unveiled on Friday.
Ready? Set… GO!
