Ricky Martin Wins Sexiest Male Singer Poll

Fans of Ricky Martin have pushed him to the top again in our latest poll asking who they think is the sexiest male pop star, getting about 31% of the approximately 7600 votes. Second was Taylor Hanson, while O-Town’s Dan Miller was third. The new poll asks which pop artist do you expect to have the best selling album of 2002 in the U.S.. Money would bank on Dido, who had the world’s top selling disc in 2001, to repeat her dominance. Those planning late year releases may have time against their side as well. Cast your selection now, but you are limited to one vote a day.

Had to wing some of this poll, with confusion on release dates obviously with it still being late in February.
