In the actual NCAA Basketball Tournament, the top-seeded Syracuse Orangemen narrowly avoided a historical first-round loss to 16th seeded North Carolina-Asheville, which would have been the first time ever that a top seed lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. In Ticket Liquidator’s Concert Madness Tournament, however, history was made as Lady Gaga became the first top seed to lose in the first round of the Tournament. Experts had predicted a possible Lady Gaga vs. Madonna matchup in the finals and were shocked at the pop-star’s early exit from the “Big Dance,” or as Jason Aldean call it, “My Kinda Party” and Lady Gaga calls it the “Monster Ball.” The final tally was 257-184 as Aldean sent Gaga and her meat dress packing. This just prove that this years’ Concert Madness Tournament is “Wide Open,” so make sure you get out to vote for the artist you are most excited about seeing this summer!
