2010 Top Male Artist

Josh Groban won the 2010 Top Male Artist with 48.2% of the vote.

Josh Groban had a good head start in 2001 when David Foster took Groban under his wing. Groban became one of the biggest selling classical crossover artists in the world; in only eight years, Groban sold more than 24 million albums worldwide. He likes to play his own instruments, write songs, take artistic control over his albums and is unafraid of taking risks. His new album Illuminations was released in November which takes a firm step away from traditional classical crossover.
