WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: These songs are all so amazing and it’s hard to choose because I feel like all these nominees deserve a surfboard, from the legend himself Bruno Mars, to the queen Rihanna, but I’m gonna have to go with Shape of You by our fave red head Ed Sheeran, we have waited years for new music from him and this year we finally got what we wished for! Shape of You has been that song that we just never get tired of hearing!

ABC

Choice Country Song (#ChoiceCountrySong): “Body Like a Back Road” – Sam Hunt; “Craving You” – Thomas Rhett (feat. Maren Morris); “Every Time I Hear That Song” – Blake Shelton; “The Fighter” – Keith Urban (feat. Carrie Underwood); “God, Your Mama, and Me” – Florida Georgia Line (feat. Backstreet Boys); “In Case You Didn’t Know” – Brett Young

WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Hands down, I predict country hottie Sam Hunt is going to ride away with the surfboard! Body Like back Road is an incredible country song and perfect to jam out to during the summer!

Choice Electronic/Dance Song (#ChoiceElectronicDanceSong): “2U” – David Guetta (feat. Justin Bieber); “It Ain’t Me” – Kygo & Selena Gomez; “Just Hold On”– Steve Aoki & Louis Tomlinson; “Know No Better” – Major Lazer (feat. Travis Scott, Camila Cabello & Quavo); “Rockabye” – Clean Bandit (feat. Sean Paul & Anne-Marie); “Something Just Like This” – The Chainsmokers & Coldplay

WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Selena Gomez has had quite a successful year, not only with her breakout Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, but the pop singer has also released amazing hit singles including Fetish and Bad Liar both topping the charts. Another one of those hit singles was It Aint Me. We absolutely love this song and jam out to it anytime it comes on the radio. There’s no doubt Selena will take home the surfboard for this one.

WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: Despacito Despacito! The hit song by Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee ft Justin Bieber will definitely sweep up the surfboard. It’s become an instant hit! We can’t get enough of this song, no matter how many times it plays on the radio I always find myself singing and dancing along to it. Can we talk about how amazing the Spanish parts are?!

Billboard

Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song (#ChoiceRBHipHopSong): “Glorious” – Macklemore (feat. Skylar Grey); “I’m The One” – DJ Khaled (feat. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper & Lil Wayne); “Location” – Khalid; “Passionfruit” – Drake; “Redbone” – Childish Gambino; “That’s What I like” – Bruno Mars

WHO WE THINK WILL WIN: This is a very hard category because I think all these artists deserve a surfboard, but I’m gonna have to go with Khalid’s Location. His debut single, Location has reached number 16 on the US Billboard Hot 100 making it his platinum hit single. This song has become one of my summer favorites.
