2013 was an amazing year for pop music! Veteran artists pushed the envelope by releasing new albums (and, in the case of Justin Timberlake, two!), while newcomers wowed us with their freshman efforts. The Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album honors the best of the best. With Lana Del Rey, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Robin Thicke and Justin up for the award, who do you think should win?
The 2014 Grammy nominees for Best Pop Solo Performance come from a range of singers. Whether it's a former boy bander-turned-solo-success or a New Zealand newcomer, these artists represent the best pop music has to offer. Sara Bareilles, Lorde, Bruno Mars, Katy Perry and Justin Timberlake are all contenders for the honor. Who do you think should win the Grammy?
Bruno Mars is stoked for his Super Bowl 2014 performance -- but he's also incredibly, admittedly nervous. When you keep in mind that it's the Super Bowl, it's understandable, but when you remember that it's Bruno Mars and that he always puts on a fantastic show without the need for shock value, well, you begin to wonder why he's so scared.
We'll always associate certain songs with this year -- records that took the radio by storm and ones that we Can't. Stop. Singing! You know, songs like Daft Punk's 'Get Lucky,' Imagine Dragons' 'Radioactive,' Lorde's 'Royals,' Bruno Mars' 'Locked Out of Heaven,' and Robin Thicke's 'Blurred Lines,' Feat. T.I. and Pharrell -- which have all been nominated for 2014's Record of the Year. So who should take home the accolade?
The competition for Song of the Year at the 2014 Grammy Awards is going to be tough! Honoring the songwriters and the composition processes, Song of the Year is one of the most prestigious music accolades. Although there were tons of amazing tunes released this year, the 2014 Grammy nominees for Song of the Year are Pink's 'Just Give Me A Reason' Feat. Nate Ruess, Bruno Mars' 'Locked Out of Heaven,' Katy Perry's 'Roar,' Lorde's 'Royals' and Macklemore + Ryan Lewis' 'Same Love.' Who do you think should take home the Grammy?
As 2013 winds down, we're taking a look at some of the best music released this year.
