Justin Bieber would disagree - but I dont think theres any doubt that Esperanza wins hands (and feet) down.

I am very happy for Esperanza . In my opinion she genuinely deserves such honors if you really weigh talent /musical ability VS hype and marketing . This has been a victory not only for her but a victory for that American art form that we call JAZZ and as such things are relative a sweet victory for real American culture as a whole. Congratulations Esperanza , this is just the beginning !

she's definitely better than bieber, but I've never really been a huge fan of hers. and I'm a little confused how she won the best new artist award, because she's been around for a few years. I studied with her a little bit at berkley, where she was a HUGE deal. kind of an off putting attitude at the time, though. whatever. good for her, it's pretty awesome. and I love how upset she made all the bieber fans.

Anyone thinking that Blubber is better than Esperanza is totally brain mush!!
I mean can he actually sing without going through a load of harmonisers and electronic cleaning gadgets??
I personally cannot stand the baby faced turd(I bet I get moderated for that now)

Personally, I don't think young Justin deserved "Best New Artist", I don't listen to his music, and I'm not a fan, still, I don't think he qualifies as a "turd", yet.
Try and remember your own state of mind when you were 14, 15 years old. Now imagine you were put in his position. How righteous and maturely would you have handled yourself?
Let's see where he is at in 10 or 15 years. A cheesy has-been? or a mature, interesting artist? or somewhere inbetween?
Remember, he's just a kid.
BTW, my wife and daughter went to his concert last year. He actually played instruments, guitar and drums. And we don't really know what kind of voice he'll have til he finishes puberty. I'm just saying, there are many more offensive assaults on my musical tastes right now, than annoying little Justin. Kesha? What's her excuse?
