So who are they?

2NE1, Alt-J, Ariana Grande, Beyonce, Bigbang, Big Sean, Brad Paisley, Charlie XCX, Dej Loaf, Drake, Ed Sheeran, Ella Henderson, Fifth Harmony, FKA Twigs, Florida Georgia Line, George Ezra, Hoodie Allen, Hozier, Hunter Hayes, J.

And is your favorite singer on the list? Mine isn’t. But, then again, I didn’t expect she would be. Not this year.

Do be aware, though, when you read this list, it does not mean this is the best music YouTube has to offer. Only that these singers had the most views on their videos.

As for the YouTube Music Awards themselves, they’ll be back on March 23rd after a one year absence.
