Billboard.com’s 2013 Mid-Year Music Awards

In a few weeks’ time, 2013 will be halfway done — and an incredible year of popular music will already be in the books. From the resurgence of consummate pros like Justin Timberlake and Daft Punk to the breakout success of Icona Pop and Kacey Musgraves to spectacular performances like Beyonce’s Super Bowl soiree and Kanye West’s manic “SNL” takeover, this year has been host to some musical moments that will resonate long after 2013 ends. Now, it’s your turn to sound off on the most unforgettable pieces of pop over the past six months.

With the first half of 2013 nearly complete, cast your vote now in the third annual Billboard.com Mid-Year Music Awards to tell us what artists, songs, albums, videos, tours and fashion choices have defined this year. Which Hot 100 chart-topper was your go-to jam? What single moment shocked you the most? And which new artist do you think demonstrated the best staying power? We’ve offered a few suggestions for each category, but feel free to write in a candidate.

(Cant believe Billboard would put him in this category. But then again nothing surprises me about Billboard anymore. Just to put everything into perspective, they nominated Miley’s “We cant stop” crap for best video, so everything about this poll or award or whatever is very questionable)
