List Rules Vote up the most famous girl groups. If you add a group, be sure they are still active.

The music industry has long been evenly split between genders, with some of the most famous girl groups right up there with the boys. In fact, top girl groups from around the world may even be the most popular artists out right now. Whether it be Kpop, American pop music, or electronica, there's a great deal of female-powered groups running the music scene—not to mention the many solo female singers. Simply put, many of today's best music groups are female, but who is the most famous girl group in the world right now?

With numerous girl Kpop group songs taking the music world by storm throughout the 2010s, popular female acts like BLACKPINK and Twice certainly top the list. As big as Kpop is, however, powerful girl groups come from all over the world. Artists like Little Mix, Fifth Harmony, and Say Lou Lou (to name a few) have all established themselves as leading female groups, releasing numerous hit singles and albums. So, who do you think holds the title as the most famous girl group in the world?

Check out the list below and vote up the groups you think are the most popular right now. You can vote groups down, as well as add others that may be missing from the list.
