Idolator’s Summer Jam Tournament Begs You For Mercy, Robots

duffyvslloyd.jpgThe first round of our quest to find the quintessential summer jam wraps up today, with the final two bouts going live. (Voting will end Sunday night, so be sure to cast your ballots soon.) After the jump, the new Lulu takes on a pair who have made summertime magic before, only this time they’re aided by cyborgs.

    “Mercy” was totally a late-spring jam, anyway.

    mercy just went top 40. which means duffy’s the first welsh person with an american pop hit since, um, cleopatra? donna lewis? i think she might be the first one of this millennium.
