List RulesOnly today's biggest pop stars. Groups from 5 years ago shouldn't be on here

The battle between pop music fans will always rage over who is the top pop star in the world. Each pop star's fanbase is highly opinionated and will always argue on behalf of their hero or heroine. This list is determined to figure out who is the biggest pop star alive. Why? Because pop stars are generally at the center of the music universe. They sell out arenas and stadiums. Pop songs are always on top-40 radio, which means their catchy hooks, radio-friendly beats and the group's crowd-friendly and darn near perfect makes both guys and girls scream OMG whenever their favorite pop star is near them. If you turn on the radio and do not hear anyone on this list at any given moment, then they aren't considered a gigantic superstar. 

Several of the pop groups and pop stars on this list are considered among the greatest pop stars of all time. That's no easy feat. You'll see some of the biggest names in pop music on this list. Ariana Grande, Shawn Mendes, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna have some of the largest fan bases in the world. Eminem's fans go nuts whenever they see their favorite group, so this is the chance to defend their honor by voting them the best current pop group on this list. The same goes for the Oscar winner Lady Gaga's Little Monsters, all of them just happen to be fans of popular singing groups. Ensure Justin's Beliebers gets his due in the pantheon of current popular artists by voting for him.

This is your chance to vote for your favorite current pop group or pop star. If you think that someone is missing, feel free to add. Vote or rerank this list according to who you think should be considered the best pop star out today!
