Another year is coming to a close (where does the time go!) and it’s been a great year for pop. All our faves have been slaying like never before and it’s time to reward their amazingness with our very own MP! Awards.

  • Single of the Year
  • Album of the Year
  • Inspirational
  • Style

We will be announcing these throughout the next couple of weeks, then the results will be announced 23rd December.

The first category is best solo star. Here are the nominees:

Selena Gomez


Ariana Grande




Niall Horan


 Justin Bieber


Shawn Mendes

Now head of all things content, David takes being a music fanboy to a whole new level, and can often be found dancing like there's nobody watching to 'Shout Out To My Ex', obsessing over Lauren Jauregui and defending Taylor Swift's honour.

David once appeared on TV in Armenia. Apparently, "it was awesome".
