August 21, 2014
Untitled Document

In the August iHeartRadio HeartBeat Survey, listeners said Carrie Underwood is the best female role model in music by a landslide, receiving more than twice as many votes as Taylor Swift, who came in a distant and surprising #2. Pharrell, on the other hand, just barely beat out John Legend to take the “chillest” man in music title.

Just ahead of Monday’s Emmy Awards, listeners said that The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’s theme song is officially the catchiest on TV (past or present).

And, according to listeners, Enrique Iglesias is the most talented celebrity offspring in the music business, following in the footsteps of his father Julio Iglesias. Enrique beat out Norah Jones (Ravi Shankar), Robin Thicke (Alan Thicke) and even Miley Cyrus (Billy Ray Cyrus).
