MTV VMAs Artist of the Year: Bruno Mars or Ariana Grande?

Bruno Mars and Ariana Grande are basically pop royalty at this point, so it comes as no shock that they're both nominated for Artist of the Year at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards. How many times do we need to say it—Ariana runs pop, and Nicki Minaj confirmed that on their hit single, "Side to Side." But Bruno is 24K magical, and that's exactly what we like about him and his visual art. Who will win Artist of the Year? 🏆🎤

#TeamBrunoMars

Bruno is the funkiest pop icon of today, and that's what he gives us in his music videos. "24K Magic" is nominated for some big awards—Best Art Direction, Best Direction, and Video of the Year.  With those other nominations and all of his success in 2017, it's clear Bruno is the Artist of the Year. 

Check out the funky video to "24K Magic" below.

#TeamAriana

Nicki Minaj rapped it, and we believe it—"Ariana run pop." Some argue she's not the big pop queen, but VMA fans know better. The video to "Side to Side" is so sexy and sensual that it's nominated for Best Choreography as well. 

Check it out below.
