As Billboard prepares to unveil its annual Power 100 list in less than a month — ranking the music executives making the biggest impact across an ever-changing industry — we thought we should put some power in the fans’ hands too. Looking back on the past year in music, who is your 2022 Power Artist?
Billboard has launched the brand-new Power Artist 2022 – Fan Choice bracket, in which music listeners pick the music star who made the biggest impact last year. In the bracket below, we’re now down to the Final Four artists who dominated Billboard‘s 2022 year-end charts, making huge moves in streaming, touring, radio, album sales and beyond.

In the third round, we lost four bona fide superstars (Taylor! Adele! Bieber! Harry!) and narrowed things down to our last two match-ups: Dua Lipa vs. Nicki Minaj and Doja Cat vs. Beyoncé.
Fourth-round voting is open now in the bracket below and will close Monday, Jan. 16, when we reveal your Top Two artists and begin championship-round voting. The winner of this inaugural bracket will be revealed in Billboard’s 2023 Power Issue alongside the executive Power List. Will your favorite artist go all the way?

Voting opened last week to all Billboard Pro members. For more information, go here. Both the 2022 Power Artist and the Power Player’s Choice Award will be unveiled in the Billboard Power Issue.
So who will be crowned the first fan-voted Power Artist? Only you can decide. Vote in the bracket below. (Reminder: Final Four voting closes on Monday.)
