List Rules Vote up the pop stars, albums, and songs you think should win in the Grammy their category.

First things first, these pop music Grammy nominations are the realest. Even though it's too bad Taylor Swift released her first official pop record just outside the qualifying window (don't worry, Swifties, "Shake it Off" qualified), we think it's safe to say that the Grammys got it right with these pop music Grammy nominations. While the Grammys are notorious for ignoring great artists throughout the years (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Notorious B.I.G., and Sly & The Family Stone never won), at least the 2015 pop music Grammy nominations are spot on.

But which of these pop stars, pop albums, and pop songs do you think deserve to win the Grammy in their category? Did Sam Smith's soulful and melancholic voice help you through a nasty breakup? Did Katy Perry's "Dark Horse" make you get down at the club? Did newcomer Iggy Azalea quench your thirst for '90s nostalgia with "Fancy"? If so, upvote these artists and songs in their respective categories.

Who do you think should win Best Pop Solo Performance? Which pop diva is most deserving of Best Pop Vocal Album? While most have probably not listened to many of the nominees in Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album, now is your opportunity to hear to what Barbra, Gaga, and, yes, even Barry Manilow had to offer this year and vote!

While not all of these deserving pop music Grammy nominees will win their respective categories, we want to hear from you about who should win on February 8, 2015! Tune in, enjoy the amazing performances that the show usually offers up, and see which of your top pop music Grammy nominees walk away with the awards.
