Best Pop Vocal Album

This category has plenty of known artists like Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, and Sia, but it’s pretty easy to narrow this category down to two likely winners and one is named Adele. Albums nominated for “Album of the Year” have a high probably of winning “Best Album” in their specific genre. And it might be shocking but Justin’s “Purpose” was actually nominated for “Album of the Year”. So it basically comes down to a battle between Justin and Adele–who both in theory have equal positioning in this race. Sorry Ariana, Demi, and Sia. Maybe next time. So who will it be?

The Nominees

25 — Adele

Purpose — Justin Bieber

Dangerous Woman — Ariana Grande

Confident — Demi Lovato

This Is Acting — Sia

Who Could Upset?

We picked Adele as the likely winner. But there is a chance Biebs could upset and take this one. Like we said, his album is in the running for Album of the Year, so it’s totally feasible that he could win Best Pop Vocal Album. Especially if the Academy is over the whole Adele thing. Or maybe they think 25 wasn’t all that they expected. And there’s always the chance that they want to throw Bieber a bone since he probably won’t win Album of the Year. If Bieber managed to beat Adele in this category, it’d be a major upset!
