Choice Male Artist: Justin Bieber or Bruno Mars?
On Aug. 13, the 2017 Teen Choice Awards is honoring the top teen idols across areas of entertainment. But the Tylt is predicting the winners in the top music categories in a series of Teen Choice brackets. Fans can officially vote at TeenChoice.com.
The pop crooners nominated for Choice Male Artist are some of the hottest artists out in the music game today. All six nominees faced off in the first round of our online polls. The top three finalists competed in our Twitter poll, and now the last two contenders will face off in our final debate.
Justin topped Shawn Mendes, Bruno crushed the Weeknd, and Ed Sheeran won over Harry Styles in the first round of our bracket. The three finalists then faced off in the Twitter poll to determine the final two. Justin led the poll with Ed in second place, but the Hooligans pushed for Bruno. In the end, Justin scored 58 percent of the vote, with Bruno scoring 28 percent.
Now it's Justin versus Bruno. Who do you think will win Choice Male Artist?
Justin won Choice Male Artist last year, following huge commercial success with his "Purpose" LP. Hence, he was the biggest male artist of 2016. But he might very well be the biggest male artist of 2017 too. He's scored two #1 hits, featured on "I'm the One" and "Despacito (Remix)." He also has another rising hit, "2U." All of these singles are nominated in various categories at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards. He's gonna win big! No doubt.

🎶 Yeah, you're lookin' at the truth The money never lie, no I'm the one, yeah, I'm the one 🎶
Bruno is so darn funky, and when you are as funky as he is—you win big. Bruno scored a top-selling album, "24K Magic," at the end of 2016, and the success of the LP has carried over into 2017 with hits like "That's What I Like" and "Perm." "24K Magic" is nominated for Choice Pop Song, but "That's What I Like" is also nominated for Choice Song: Male Artist, Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song and Choice Summer Song. He's just as big of a hitmaker as Justin is! Bruno and his Hooligans are coming for that crown.
