Rihanna and Ariana Grande are in the final round of our 2017 Billboard Music Awards Top Female Artist bracket after weeks of debate. Rihanna scored mega Billboard hits in 2016—"Work," "Needed Me" and "This Is What You Came For." Ariana showed us she runs pop with smashes like "Dangerous Woman," "Into You" and "Side to Side" with Nicki Minaj. Who should win the coveted honor at the BBMAS? 🎤

On May 21, the 2017 Billboard Music Awards is honoring the best music artists who dominated the Billboard charts within the last year. And the Tylt is predicting the winners in the "Top Artist" categories in a series of BBMA brackets. The ladies nominated for Top Female Artist are some of the best artists in the music game. (Unfortunately, we had to leave off a nominee in this bracket—Sia.)

It was Beyoncé versus Rihanna, and Adele versus Ariana Grande in our first round. Now it's Rihanna versus Ariana in the final round before the big show.
