Measuring where people are listening and discovering music:
- Song chart: Bruno Mars maintains his spot at the top of the Ultimate Song Chart, for the second straight week. After nine weeks in the Top 20, “Locked Out Of Heaven” continues to build momentum at terrestrial radio, with increased monitored airplay translating to a listening audience just under 120 million according to Mediabase. Following her debut on the Ultimate Song Chart (11/29), Cassadee Pope returns to the chart this week, with her second debut in the Top 20 in just under a month. Judge Christina Aguilera described the West Palm Beach natives interpretation of Keith Urban's “Stupid Boy” by saying "…your voice sounds so right on, it almost sounds auto-tuned – you’re on point, and that blows me away every time…" With two appearances in the Top 20 so far, the former lead singer of the pop-punk band Hey Monday is stepping forward as one of the front runners on the current season of The Voice.
