I’m not sure about that choice, I mean, Call Me Maybe was fun to listen to but they are so many other good new artists this year.
Justin Bieber, 1D, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez and cie, It feels like music industry is rules by toddlers and their YT video views.

@Lily:
Most of the artists you mentioned have been around for a few years. Carly is certainly the breakout popstar of the year.

Sorry, just realized I misread your post. Thought you were saying Justin Bieber etc. were new artists.

Cute, but dresses too young for her age.

IMO, it’s her height that makes her look like she dresses too young for her age. Same with Avril tbh.

This girl is a one-hit wonder. Nothing more. And she’s way too old to be dressing like a teenager. She is almost 27! We saw her at a fair last summer. All the kids around me were saying, “just play Call Me Maybe so we can go home.” She strategically placed that song at the end of her set so no one would leave until it was done. Dragonette came on before her. The crowd knew more of their songs than Carly. LOL

@claxon: Sistren, was that your first concert ever? Lol. The artists’ setlist have always been like that. They place their biggest hits at the very end. And so what if she dresses like that? She’s still young. Do you want her to dress like Adele?
