September 1, 2009

Entertainment Weekly did another fun bracket tournament with 32 Guilty Pleasure musical artists. I thought it was an interesting collection of choices…some actual guilty pleasures, some real great acts, and some real Grade A cheese. (click on the picture to enlarge to full-size)

Take a moment and figure out, based on the brackets, who your favourite Guilty Pleasure is, and then give your result in the Comments section. If you feel so inclined, include your Championship Match, or even your Final Four.

My (non-shocking) result, along with my full Final Four in the Comments section below.
*Bonus trivia* - The first person in the comments section to correctly identify which THREE of those 32 musical artists I've seen live in concert will win a six-pack of Coke Zero.

My Final Four was Duran Duran, Styx, Ace of Base (that was a weak bracket, to say the least), and Hall & Oates.

Duran Duran beats Hall & Oates in the final.

Snoman said...

Pussycat Dolls, Celine Dion and Spice Girls are the ones you must have seen in concert.....of course just a guess..... :P

Sean said...

Wrong, and for your absurd guess, you win a "two-four" of Coke Zero.

Although didn't we see the Pussycat Dolls dealing blackjack at Caesar's Palace in Vegas?

Duran Duran, Hall & Oates, Phil Collins. I was wondering - for partially correct answers, if an arrangement could be made for a portion of a six pack of Coke Zero. I'm sure I've got 2/3 correct. I know Britney is probably #3, but I went with Phil.

Sean said...

Galileocan, you are incorrect. Only 3 for 3 takes the prize.

galileocan said...

Oh screw it. I'm going outside the "box". The actual 3...... - Nana Mouskouri, Julio Iglesias, and Susan Boyle. Now give me my damned Coke Zeros.

Sean said...

250+ concerts in my lifetime, and a multitude that I'm embarrassed about...but that was 0 for 3.

Anonymous said...

Hmm, I'm going to guess Duran Duran, Hall & Oates, and Neil Diamond.

Also, I have no idea who my final four were, but Duran Duran wins because they are awesome and better than all those other bands. Though I cannot BELIEVE you had Ace of Base beating STP. There is something wrong with you.

Also, if by some chance I am correct, please do not send me any Coke Zero.

Sean said...

Incorrect, Caesar. Rest assured you won't be receiving the Coke Zero prize.

Never been an STP fan. Sorry...

galileocan said...

From what I see there is nothing that stops someone from guessing more than once. Like betting on horses then, I would like a Triactor Box... Duran Duran, Hall and Oates and "The Field". So rather than make 30 more separate posts of Duran Duran, Hall and Oates and "X", I am saving you the read by putting it all here in one post. I'd like my Coke Zeros now please. Thanks. I win.

nicki said...

duran duran, phil collins, hall & oates?!

Sean said...

A valiant effort Nicki, but not quite.

I respect all of your final four...unlike a lot of 'artists' on the list. And I respect (and LOVE) the fact that 15 Comments into the Comments section, you're the FIRST one to actually list your winners!

nicki said...

hmm...do i get some coke zero for THAT? bahaha ;)

Derek said...

Final 4: Duran Duran, STP, John Denver & Garth Brooks. Duran Duran takes down John Denver in a close finale.

Live concerts = Moxy Fruvous x3!!

Sean said...

Nicki, maybe a can of Coke Zero for getting the ball rolling...take another guess.

Derek, Moxy Fruvous...nice one! Duran Duran is the only choice.

galileocan said...

Me - Abba vs. Lady GaGa - Abba wins
Celine Dion vs. Ace of Base. - Celine wins. Celine beats Abba.

Galileocan-ette - Exactly the same as above.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree

nicki said...

OK..Duran Duran, Hall & Oates, and Styx.

Sean said...

Galileocan...who could have possible guessed those? Shocking.

Nicki...YOU WIN!

Congrats, Duran Duran, Hall & Oates, and Styx was the correct answer.

Six-Pack of Coke Zero coming your way. Well done.

Matchbox twenty. Ashlee Simpson (worst bracket ever) Air Supply. Backstreet boys. How teenage girl was that final four for you? lmfao.
Final two? - Air Supply and Matchbox Twenty
The winnner is probably Matchbox Twenty.

brytni said...
