1. Justin Timberlake

Qualifications: Swagger and two solo albums that should have been Michael Jackson’s. That said, he did Janet Jackson wrong during the “Nipplegate.”

2. Adele

Qualifications: Her sense of soul when she sings feels so familiar.

3. Jon B.

Qualifications: If you were alive in the 90’s you wouldn’t even have to ask.

4. Gary Owen

Qualifications: There’s nothing better than a white dude who KNOWS the culture but doesn’t pretend to be FROM that culture.

5. Amber Rose

Qualifications: She helped take Kanye off our hands for a while — that’s at least a temporary pass.
