Karmin, Rita Ora are Finalists for Rolling Stone's Women Who Rock!

Sept. 4, 2012

Remember that video that went viral of the gal and guy who covered Chris Brown's "Look at me now" single?

Well, Amy and Nick, aka Karmin, pretty much got famous from that YouTube video and are now touring and also are up for Rolling Stone's Women Who Rock! Voting ends Sept. 10 if you want to see Karmin take the win.

The editors at Rolling Stone picked six female fronted-bands and female solo acts to compete for the flip-cover of Rolling Stone's Women In Rock issue.

Fans voted and Karmin is a finalist vying for the coveted spot. She is up against Rita Ora. Ora was born in Kosovo and raised in West London. She, like Rihanna, is a Jay-Z protégé.

These ladies will square off in a battle of the bands at the 2012 Chicago Rolling Stone Rock Room during the Lollapalooza Festival.

The ultimate winner, in addition to appearing on the flip-cover of Rolling Stone's Women Who Rock issue, will also perform at a Rolling Stone private concert.

Here's the viral video that helped launch Karmin's career:
