Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

Just a question about the voting: are the rules the same as last year (if you want to vote in a genre, you have to vote for artist, song and album)?

I'll try to vote again this year. I was too busy last year, but now I have a lot more time. :D

No, this year I want to make it for voters as simple as possible, so vote in any category you want! If you only want to vote Best Pop Song, go ahead!

Presenting the Top Nominees

Image


Katy Perry, with 10 nominations, leads 2017 nominees lists! She has nominations in all three main categories: Artist of the Year, Album of the Year and Song of the Year which puts her in a very good place to become the top winner of the night.

June 9th marked the arrival of her fifth studio album, Witness. So far, 4 singles were released, but three of them during 2017: "Chained to the Rhythm" featuring Skip Marley on February 10, "Bon Appétit" featuring Migos on April 28, "Swish Swish" featuring Nicki Minaj on May 19, 2017. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, Witness topped the charts in Canada, Spain, and the United States while reaching number two in Australia, South Korea, Mexico, and New Zealand and the top five in nine other nations.

Musically, Witness is an electropop album with a diversity of sounds and musical aspects. As analyzed by Annie Zaleski from The A.V Club, hooks are in short supply, replaced by grooves and atmosphere that pick and choose elements from 1990s house music, mainstream EDM, electro-tinged hip-hop, and 1980s new wave.

Here are all nominations for this amazing artst:
Artist Of The Year
Album Of The Year: Witness
Song Of The Year: Chained to the Rhytm feat. Skip Marley
Female Artist Of The Year
Collaboration Of The Year: Chained to the Rhytm feat. Skip Marley
Collaboration Of The Year: Bon Appetit deat. Migos
Best Pop Album: Witness
Best Pop Song: Chained to the Rhytm feat. Skip Marley
Best Pop Artist
Best Dance-Electronic Song: Feels with Calvin Harris feat. Pharrell and Big Sean

Although i respect the fact that Harry Styles is presented as rock - you're simply a deaf snob if you think otherwise - i'm not really a fan of most popular music (really lost interest around 2012) and can't vote for these things. I like Taylor, i like Katy but i can't vote for those songs. And i didn't take part in the nomination process.

No problem! Thanks anyway for taking the time to answer :)

In a way all members that have personal charts have taken part in the nomination process! Nominees are 100% objectively based on the Top200 Year-End Chart of the UKmixPARADE. I only search for the genre and álbum (wiki) and then Rank them by artista and song and then nominees are the top5 rankings in song/álbum/artista.

So you DID took part in the nominatio process, but probably none of your top songs ended up in the top places of the Year end chart.

About Harry, I think it is a Little pop and some rock, but Pop could fit his style for most of his songs, at least wiki said soft rock / britpop so in a way i was torn between pop and rock but chose the second. In my own criteria, Harry is more pop (pop rock / britpop = pop for me).

Voted!

I only voted in those categories where I actually knew and liked some of the choices. Even there most options were so-so, with a couple of huge exceptions :D. (Sorry for not voting the previous years btw, not sure I even knew about this then tbh.)

The Chainsmokers are also with 10 nominations! But they are up for 5 awards in fact so Katy has a small lead.

April 7th marked the launch of Memories...Do Not Open, the duo's first album. After the successfull Collage EP, the album debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 with 221,000 album-equivalent units, of which 166,000 were pure album sales. At Metacritic the album received an average score of 43, based on 8 reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews". But UKmix didn't care and eventually nominated the band in the following categories:

Artist Of The Year
Group Artist Of The Year
Collaboration Of The Year: Something Just Like This feat. Coldplay
Collaboration Of The Year: Closer feat. Halsey
Best Dance-Electronic Album: Memories...Do Not Open
Best Dance-Electronic Album: Collage (EP)
Best Dance-Electronic Song: Paris
Best Dance-Electronic Song: Something Just Like This feat. Coldplay
Best Dance-Electronic Song: Closer feat. Halsey

Presenting the Top Nominees

Ed Sheeran gets 7 nominations this year. In a year of charts domination for the british guy, UKmix showed support, but also presented some resistance.

March3rd marked the arrival of Divide, Ed's third album. The album debuted at number one in the United Kingdom, selling 672,000 units in its first week, making it the fastest-selling album by a male artist there and the third-highest opening behind Adele's 25 and Oasis' Be Here Now. It also topped the charts in 14 countries, including the United States, Canada, and Australia. The dominance of its tracks on the UK chart led to calls for change on how the single chart is compiled, and the Official Charts Company then introduced new rules limiting tracks eligible for entry in the top 100 to three per main artist, as well as adjusting the streams-to-sales ratio for older songs.

The album is nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards. Surprisingly, it was snubbed for the Top award of the night. ÷ has been given a Metacritic score of 62 based on 17 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews".
