Miley Cyrus -- "Wrecking Ball" Director: Terry Richardson Strengths: Miley Cyrus in full shedding-her-image mode confronts her raw sexuality upon instruments of destruction with fleeting glimpses of the pain beneath the song and the video's flashy overtness. Lacks: EXTENDOS!

Pharrell Williams -- "Happy" Director: We Are From L.A. Strengths: The daunting task of a 24-hour music video is Warholian in its ambition, but Pharrell lives up to it with an extended video version that lasts an entire day. Even whittled down to its official version, "Happy" captures the sheer exuberance of being alive and positive about it. Lacks: GO PLAY YOUR NINTENDO!
