Hey guys and welcome to the first round of Katy Perry vs. Taylor Swift which is the battle of both of their biggest albums to date, 1989 v Teenage Dream.
Both albums turned each artist into the world's biggest popstars and set records worldwide. Teenage Dream is the second album in history (the first by a woman) to have five number ones from one album and the third album in history to produce eight top five hits. 1989 was the biggest selling album of 2014 in America and won the Grammy Award for album of the year, making Swift the first female artist to win this award twice.

A few quick rules to get through:
- Please vote based on the SONGS. Idc if utterly hate Katy or utterly hate Taylor and want to snub them completely cos of their personality, put that to one side and judge based on the songs.
- Plz try and listen to all the songs. Spotify & Youtube & Apple Music all exist and this is a great way to discover new songs and check out albums you may have not listened to yet!
I think that's everything but I probs forgot something

Voting:
- Vote in the same style as BJSC/Eurovision. However we are using the +18 format so please vote in this style (so 18pts/15pts/13pts/12pts/11pts/10pts/9pts/8pts/7pts/6pts/5pts/4pts/3pts/2pts/1pts). This means you are voting for 15 songs and they must be in order of favourite to 15th favourite.
- As this round is in the Taylor forum, please pm your votes to either myself or Liam. We'll probs be using the same spreadsheet to add it up so it doesn't rly matter if you send it to Liam or myself!

Deadline: coming soon

Tracks: (in alphabetical order, Red = Taylor/1989, Purple = Katy/Teenage Dream)
If anyone wants to make a spotify playlist for this that'd be fab and I'll add a link here!

Voted!

Pretty difficult but I think its going to be worse with Prism included as I'm not a massive fan of Teenage Dream to begin with

This was TOUGH because I love both albums loads. Ended up including 8 Katy tracks and 7 Taylor tracks which is probably right, I do think I slightly prefer Teenage Dream.

This was a tough one as both these albums are fantastic and are the best of their careers, I tried to be as fair as I could to try and include an equal amount from both albums.

Actually finding it really interesting that both of the fourth singles were given single mixes with featured rappers.

Sent! I would've included both versions of one of the songs because it's that good but I'm all for ACR and letting otherwise forgotten songs in~
