It seems like it was almost a year ago that a blogging groundswell culminated in Lana Del Rey’s infamously bad “Saturday Night Live” appearance … and that’s because it was. But as wonderful as watching that trainwreck was, it turns out the Internet had even more love for another artist this year.
The Hype Machine has released its Music Blog Zeitgeist 2012 list, which ranks the top 50 most blogged artists. Defeating Lana Del Rey for the number one spot this year is Canadian electro-jamming, hair-dying artist Grimes.
At number 39, the only Colorado artist listed is Tennis, (not really) proving that even Colorado’s musicians are too busy enjoying the great outdoors to concern themselves with the interweb.
That doesn’t really matter though, right? After all, Grimes isn’t up for a Grammy (ahem: the Lumineers).
