2013 MTV artists of the year!

Miley Cyrus burst in to 2013 like a "Wrecking Ball," declaring her independence from Hannah Montana and dominating the pop culture landscape. Her album "Bangerz" taught America how to twerk while her videos broke records. All hail the new Queen of Pop.

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis continued to catapult their 2012 album "The Heist" through 2013. "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us" kept everyone dancing while "Same Love" created conversation among music lovers of all ages. The duo rounded out the year with a world tour of epic high-energy shows.
 Justin Timberlake returned to the radio with a bang this year. The R&B star topped the charts twice in 2013 - both "The 20/20 Experience - Part 1" and "Part 2" hit big on the Billboard. But our favorite moment? The *NSYNC reunion that his MTV Video Vanguard award helped to make happen.
 2013 was truly "Yeezus" Season. Kanye West's minimalist and experimental album by that name was followed by an eye-popping accompanying tour. Outside of the studio, West made headlines with the birth of his first child; he welcomed daughter North West with his now-fiancĂ© Kim Kardashian.
 Three years after their formation, One Direction are still going strong. With a new album, "Midnight Memories," and their 3-D biopic, "1D: This Is Us," the boys are ready for world domination.
 Katy Perry roared her way through 2013. Her album "Prism" debuted at #1, her singles "Roar" and "Unconditionally" have been unavoidable on radio, and her voice as Smurfette in "The Smurfs 2" totally "blue" our minds.
 Drake's highly anticipated third album, "Nothing Was The Same," went platinum in just over a month. The lead single, "Started From The Bottom," spawned a million memes while "Hold On We're Going Home" won over a million hearts.
 After releasing his hit-spawning album "Unorthodox Jukebox" at the end of 2012, Bruno Mars serenaded overseas on his year-long tour, while managing to pick up a handful of awards at both the MTV VMAs & EMA, as well.
Lorde, the 17 year old New Zealand-born songstress, burst on to the scene in 2013 with her #1 hit "Royals." Hardly a one hit wonder, her debut record, "Pure Heroine," recently earned her a Grammy nomination for Best Pop Solo Performance. 
 Lady Gaga's 2013 album "ARTPOP" spawned a clap-happy number one single, much-talked-about collaborative projects with artists like Jeff Koons and Mariana Abramovic, and a movement of Little Monsters everywhere.
