The Next Carly Rae Jepsen: Cher Lloyd
With a name like Cher, it would be impossible not to be a diva. But when you think Carly Rae Jepsen, you probably don’t think “diva.” That’s because we didn’t pick Cher because she sounds like Carly. We picked her because her new single is catchy enough to be the new “Call Me Maybe.” The pint-sized crooner reminds us of P!nk in her “Get the Party Started” days, with a little Katy Perry and a whole lot of attitude on top. Plus, Simon Cowell gave Cher a recording contract after her fourth place finish on X Factor. And Simon Cowell may be a jerk, but he knows his pop stars.
