Usher Tops New Pop Power Poll

USHER has topped a new poll to find the most powerful voice in pop music in 2005.

The R+B star beat ALICIA KEYS, COLDPLAY and EMINEM to claim the top spot in the Los Angeles Times Pop Power List, after industry bigwigs including producers JERMAINE DUPRI and RICK RUBIN and rap mogul RUSSELL SIMMONS were asked to cast their votes.

One of the 21 music bosses on the panel of judges, who remained nameless, insisted BRITNEY SPEARS didn't deserve to be on the new Power List because "she's over", while another suggested her pop rival CHRISTINA AGUILERA didn't make the list because she's "too volatile".

The full top 10 is:

1. USHER

2. ALICIA KEYS

3. COLDPLAY

4. EMINEM

5. BEYONCE KNOWLES

6. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE

7. OUTKAST

8. 50 CENT

9. KANYE WEST

10. DR DRE.
