Best Artist Instagram

A good celebrity instagram account is pretty much an art form. Nominees include Bon Iver and Mariah Carey.

Best Artist to Follow on Twitter

A lot of celeb accounts are just a place for them to promote their projects, so it's fun when an artist shows a little personality! Nominees include Solange, Questlove, and Bruno Mars.



The "Friday, Friday" Award

This award lists all the memes that need to die. The nominees include the Harlem Shake, flash mobs, and lip dubs, like Justin Bieber's career-starting one for Carly Rae Jepsen.

Best Web-Born Artists

These nominees, including Angel Haze, and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, can thank the internet for their careers.

Fan Base FTW

The internet rewards passionate fans, and Beyonce's Beyhive, Demi Lovato's Lovatics, Ed Sheeran's Sheerios, and Selena Gomez's Selenators make it their jobs to obsess about the stars.
