Billboard's Top Male Artist: Justin Bieber or Shawn Mendes?

Justin Bieber and Shawn Mendes beat out some stiff competition in the first round of our 2017 Billboard Music Awards Top Male Artist bracket.

They're arguable two of the hottest stars in the music game, and fan armies are ready for this mano a mano duel. Who should win? 🎤
