Hi IpodNano, I will be reviewing "Party in the U.S.A." against the GA criteria for you! Candyo32 13:03, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars, etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall:


  • The prose seems fine to me. Just a few minor issues, and it should be on its way!


  • No comma after the but in the first sentence.

Chart performance[edit]

  • Why is the CRIA listed as digital downloads for certs, while RIAA is shipments?
  • Because the CRIA certification for digital downloads has a different requirement than the physical singles certification. It's different and the source says "Party in the U.S.A." was awarded 4 times digital platinum. While in the RIAA, they are the same. It's a million sales for platinum -- ipodnano05 * leave@message 19:20, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Music video[edit]

  • Non free images need to be 300x300
  • O.K. But since it is two images in one, I think it should be acceptable for the image to be the size it currently is. fi you disagree I'll lower the resolution. -- ipodnano05 * leave@message 19:22, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Lowered a bit. -- ipodnano05 * leave@message 19:57, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Eh, I'm still weary of it since all together it is still one non-free image, even though it is two stills. Candyo32 21:12, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Isn't its new size suitable? -- ipodnano05 * leave@message 22:06, 2 October 2010 (UTC)

Cover versions[edit]

  • Not a big deal, but are there anymore more cover versions that could be noted other than just those two. Just wondering to see if the section could be fleshed out more.


  • Could there be a release history and/or credits and personnel section?
  • Release histories is not something I think should be added to pages. I would add a personnel section but no other Miley Cyrus song articles have it so it would not be in cohesion. -- ipodnano05 * leave@message 20:20, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
I would recommend it, I won't push it since it isn't listed in WP:SONGS. 21:12, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
  •  Done
  • Refs 26 is dead.
  •  Done
  • Composition - "In the verses, she details occurrences, like peers questioning her attire,[15] in Hollywood that cause for her to feel homesick and intimidated." Weird wording between "attire" and "in Hollywood" doesn't make sense.
  • The attire information is supposed to be an example for the occurrences. Therefore, it is put in commas. I replaced "like" with "such as". Maybe that helps distinguish the relationship between "attire" and "in Hollywood"? -- ipodnano05 * leave@message 20:24, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Much better. Candyo32 21:12, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
  • There are several spots in the chart performance where a comma needs to be placed in between two different ideas. (ex. the sentence about charting on the Pop Songs and Adult Pop Songs).
  •  Done
  • In music video, "Video conception sprang forward with the idea to resemble the scene in Grease where John Travolta sings "Sandy": in the scene, Travolta exits from a car and walks over to a jungle gym, where he sits on a swing and performs the song as projections are displayed in the background" --> Period after "Sandy", begin new sentence.
  •  Done
"The video won the MuchMusic Video Award for Best International Artist Video and was nominated for the MuchMusic Video Award for People's Choice: Favourite International Video, but lost to Adam Lambert's video for "Whataya Want From Me" at the 2010 MuchMusic Video Awards.[48]." This is a bit awkwardly organized. Mention something like "At the 2010 MuchMusic Awards, the song won the video for...........,but lost out in the category Adam Lambert's....."
  •  Done
  • In live performances, "Child psychologist Wendi Fischer told Newsday Cyrus was communicating..." Comma or colon after Newsday.
  •  Done
  • Track listing need sources.
  •  Done
  • Ref 77 is messed up.
  •  Done

Begin to work on these fixes, and I'll post some more comments later. Candyo32 12:58, 27 September 2010 (UTC)
