Best Live Performer – 2015 PopCrush Fan Choice Awards
Is there anything better than live music? We're going to assume the answer is "no." The past year was a huge, huge, huge year for live shows -- as evidenced by the incredible nominees in the Best Live Performer category in the 2015 PopCrush Fan Choice Awards.
Beyonce put on one of the most buzzworthy shows of the year. Considering that she kicked off 2014 with a steamy performance of 'Drunk in Love' at the Grammys, we had high expectations for her On the Run Tour. And, because she's Beyonce, she totally exceeded them.
If you want to see an emotional show, look no further than Demi Lovato. The singer is known for wowing fans with her incredible voice and for moving them with her intense performances. (Seriously, have you even seen the audience when she sings 'Skyscraper'?)
One of the most talked-about musical events of 2014 was Miley Cyrus' Bangerz Tour. From her provocative costumes to her undeniable stage presence, the 'Adore You' singer made headlines with her over-the-top visuals. And, as any Smiler will attest, Miley's got the vocal power to back it all up.
We can't talk about 2014 tours without mentioning One Direction's Where We Are Now show. Once again, Harry, Niall, Liam, Zayn and Louis captivated thousands of screaming fans with their catchy tracks and hilarious on-stage antics. As they gear up for their next tour, we know they'll manage the nearly impossible accomplishment of topping 2014's concerts.
Nothing tops a Taylor Swift performance. Theatrical, energetic and never boring, T. Swift has mastered the art of enrapturing her audience. While she didn't tour in 2014, she did perform at multiple awards shows, showing off her newly minted pop image. And, in case we had any doubts, '1989' sounds just as good live as it does on the album.
