I like the king's music better, but I think the queen has great shows. Still I would go for Michael Jackson.

Correction:
If you had a chance to watch one of their live performances, whom would you like to pick, the 'King' Michael or the 'Queen' Madonna?

It still sounds a bit awkward since one is dead already, in the case of MJ, the questions means "wish you could but you can't" and in the case of Madonna, it means "wish you could". Kind of like asking, which animal would you love to own: an ostrich or a dodo? :)

How about just asking for the favorite? Or which one deserved to sit on a higher throne of Pop Music (since you started by mentioning their nicknames).

Who is the all-time King, Queen, Master and Commander of Pop Music?

(not sure the focus on live concerts is relevant)

Change in question:

If you had a chance to watch one of their live performances, whom would you like to pick (if both were alive today), the 'King' Michael or the 'Queen' Madonna?

Is that alright?

I agree that because only one is alive, it's a bit awkward. I liked ElMo's idea:

DC,

This should serve as notice to new authors that poll suggestions occasionally take a long time to go live.
