The pop category is the shortest, mainly because it’s the hardest to distinguish.
Modern Pop is mixed with so many different influences. It’s hard to look at the songs released during any given year and be able to pick out a song that’s purely pop. Even traditional “pop” artists, lean towards another genre for influence.
The pop categories are traditionally for vocal performances and albums, rather than song recognition like the R&B, Rap, and Country categories.
All of these nominations caused a shaking of my head to occur. Few made sense, some seemed lazy, and I think some were just made for extra entertainment.
