Ed's "Shape of You" has been viewed more than 2 billion times on YouTube, and this totally makes sense since the smash is one of the biggest songs of the year. "Shape of You" is nominated for Best Pop Video, and "Castle on the Hill" has a nod for Best Cinematography. The pop-folk/rock superstar is bound to win big after such a huge year making not only hit singles but also hit videos.

Check out the music video to "Shape of You" below.

Everyone was excited when the "Royals" singer made her grand return to the pop scene with "Green Light." Lorde might be popular, but she's an artist, and that's apparent with her hit and its accompanying video with her dancing in the streets. The song and the video are both infectious. Hence, she is not only a strong contender for Artist of the Year, but the video to "Green Light" could win Best Editing too.
