Clay Aiken, Josh Groban

Musically, of course.

These two titans go head to head this week on the charts. While Clay Aiken has been enjoying a meaty role in Spamalot, Josh Groban surprised us recently with his deeply moving appearance in Jimmy Kimmel's video valentine to Ben Affleck.

So what's it gonna be: Clay's On My Way Here (which is totally hot for your mom) or Josh's Awake Live CD/DVD (which is offering you 23 minutes of its epic awesomeness here).

Let us know your choice, and then check out the rest of the week’s new music:

Neil Diamond, Home Before Dark
Yes, he did come off as a bit of a zombie when serving as a guest mentor on American Idol a few weeks back. But on his second outing with Johnny Cash producer Rick Rubin, Diamond displays the kind of incredible warmth usually reserved for actual living, breathing songwriters.
Listen: "Pretty Amazing Grace"

Gavin DeGraw, S/T
Remember when somebody took those two Nickelback songs and overlapped them and everything sounded exactly the same? You could pretty much do that with every song on DeGraw's sophomore album and his breakthrough hit, "I Don't Want to Be."
Listen: "In Love With a Girl"

Also Out: Barenaked Ladies, Snacktime; Elvis Costello and the Imposters, Momofuku; Craig David, Trust Me; Firewater, The Golden Hour; Tim Fite, Fair Ain't Fair; Four Tet, Ringer; the Long Blondes, Couples; Matmos, Supreme Balloon; the Morning Benders, Talking Through Tin Cans; No Age, Nouns; Shy Child, Noise Won't Stop
