The Experts Say

Wayne Coyne: It has to be Miley Cyrus. I love her — for me, it goes beyond records. The thing she has with her audience is more powerful than music and lyrics. She deserves it.

Charli XCX: This wasn't Coldplay's most popular album, maybe, but it really worked for me. There are some beautiful songs on that one. Ariana Grande's voice is also incredible.

Eric Church: Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith are both great — we're splittin' hairs here. But I'm gonna go with Ed. Anybody that can stand up there with just a guitar and entertain a big room by himself gets the nod from me.

Vegas Odds Favor

Sam Smith 6-5

Who Should Win

Sam Smith and pop vocals are practically synonymous — no one in this category can compare to his divine falsetto.
