Favorite crossover adult contemporary crooner: Josh Groban or Michael Bublé?
Josh Groban and Michael Bublé are both such great sports and funny men too! These two poked fun at each other's styles live on stage, but it's clear they are fans of each other and respect one another's talents. Check out their imitations of each other below. It's quite hilarious!
Groban broke out with his commercially successful self-titled debut album and adult contemporary hit "To Where You Are." The album established him as not just any 'ol adult contemporary artist, but a vocal master with a classical and operatic pop sound. Groban's voice has been making us feel all the feels for two decades now. His latest album "Bridges" peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 and gave us the new powerful ballads "Granted," "Symphony" and "River."

Bublé is definitely carrying on the legacy of traditional pop-jazz crooners, drawing much of his inspiration and influence from Frank Sinatra. But he also intersects pop rock into his overall adult contemporary sound. He broke out with his major label self-titled debut album in 2003. Since then, he's not only become the ultimate traditional pop crooner, but the Christmas crooner of this generation. Bublé's latest album "Love" peaked at #2 on the Billboard 200 and features another signature crooning ballad "When I Fall In Love."
