From the Backstreet Boys to 'N Sync, from Britney Spears to Christina Aguilera, the 2000s boasted some of the biggest pop acts ever recorded. These are just a few of the superstar nominees for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album during that decade. The best pop vocal albums of the 2000s included releases by bubblegum boy bands, legendary solo artists, and up-and-coming singers, but all of them left their mark on the music industry.

It's hard to say who should take the top spot on this 2000s pop vocal albums list. The early part of the decade was dominated by boy bands like the aforementioned 'N Sync. But in 2004, Justin Timberlake took home the trophy all by himself for his debut solo album, Justified. Soulful songstress Norah Jones became an instant sensation when her album, Come Away with Me, won the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album in 2003. Other iconic releases among the best 2000s album nominees include Lovers Rock by Sade and Bon Jovi's Lost Highway.
