Can Carly Rae Jepsen continue the ascent that started last March when her catchy "Call Me Maybe" caught us off guard? She recently released her own version of a Taylor breakup ballad, "Tonight I'm Getting Over You", from her album Kiss.
Speaking of Tay, despite her dating drama with One Direction's Harry Styles, she continues to make us feel "22" and keep her fans (aka Swifties) wanting more.
Miley Cyrus has been teasing fans with twitter updates from the studio and the promise of new music for as long as we can remember. We can't wait to hear her new sound and see how it compares to previous pop anthems like "Party in the USA."
Hunter Hayes, T-Swift's opening act Austin Mahone, new British invasion boy band Lawson and Skylar Grey, who has written hits for Rihanna and is now making it as a solo artist.
