Billboard has released it's findings for the Top 100 artists of 2012.  This list is more legit than most "end of the year" lists because it's based on hard numbers, including album, song and ticket sales, chart performance, tweets and more.  Thing is with the end coming quick, it makes you think...what is our legacy?

Musically, for 2012, its Adele.  She is Billboard's Top Artist for 2013.  And I'm OK with that.  Here is a run down of the top 20, follow this link to find the rest.
