Top Artist: Adele, Beyonce, Justin Bieber, The Chainsmokers, Drake, Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Rihanna, Twenty One Pilots, The Weeknd

Who We Think Will Win: All these artists came out with new music, had tours, and an overall great year. Beyoncé deserves all the awards because she is the Queen, but we think Adele is going to take home the award for Top Artist. She not only dominates every award show she’s nominated at, but also is a record-breaking artist; so say hello to the winner.
