    What about Sue Johnston & Amanda Burton? Can they be goddesses of lip-syncing?

    I'll accept that.



    Also while I'm here, I've just been talking to Su about this thread and she's eager (really enthusiastic) to find out where she will land in this topic.

    It was from an 80s reality show called THE MARRIAGE, that's about all I know, I never watched it.

    She's the Yelluhcoat of One Hit Wonders.


    It was huge, and probably my first encounter with fly-on-the-wall TV before we became saturated with it. I was well invested in it.


    Ah - nostalgia. Apparently they're still happily married, though I'm sure the tabloids have reported them as divorcing numerous times.

    Re-reading my pop bible, Yeah Yeah Yeah: The Story of Modern Pop, Bing Crosby is referred to as the king of the crooners.

    It also calls him king of the singers between the '20s and the '50s.

    In the early fifties, Bob Merrill, who wrote things like '(If I Knew You Were Comin') I'd Have Baked a Cake' and '(How Much is) That Doggie in the Window?', was "the best-selling composer in the world" and "could stake a claim to be the king of pre-rock".

    Interesting Topic

    1. Queen of Rock Tina Turner

    Janis Joplin was dubbed the first queen of rock 'n' roll, and her voice is singular. She was rough around the edges, vulnerable and charismatic, and she paved the way for countless women in rock. Mid-1960s San Francisco was a mecca for counterculture musicians.

    King Of Rock-Elvis Presley
    Elvis Presley was the King of Rock and Roll. It was a title that others gave him but it's hard to argue that it wasn't appropriate. He was the first true rock icon and his music had a massive impact on all who came afterwards.

    Queen of Country- Dolly Parton
    The original "Queen of Country Music" is Kitty Wells. Even Dolly Parton would say so if she really knows country music! As of today's country music it would be Carrie Underwood.

    King Of Country-Kenny Rogers

    George Strait. George Harvey Strait (born May 18, 1952) is an American country music singer, songwriter, actor, and music producer. He is known as the "King of Country" and is considered one of the most influential and popular recording artists of all time.

    King Of Pop-Michael Jackson

    Queen of Pop -Madonna

    Queen of Soul -Aretha Franklin

    Queen of Jazz -Ella Fitzgerald

    Father Of Jazz -Louis Armstrong

    Soul King -James Brown
