Five powerhouse pop music divas were announced as Top Female Artists nominees for The 2017 Billboard Music Awards and fans are already preparing to have their edges snatched on May 21st. With 14 nods, this year’s most nominated female artist, Rihanna could snag ten or more wins and make BBMAs history for the most wins… ever! But bad gal RiRi isn’t the only legend up for Top Female Artist: Adele, Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, and Sia are also amongst this year’s sickening nominees.
So with five fierce ladies who all possess the vocal ability to slay any song, we couldn’t help but wonder: if these iconic nominees were transformed into superheroes, what would their super powers be?
If the sepia-toned “Hello” music video taught us anything, it’s that Adele can control the wind (and probably any other element) with just her voice. So forget leaving anything as “Water Under the Bridge,” this British diva is here to “Set Fire to the Rain” and take the BBMAs by storm. With nods in the highly-coveted Top Artist and Top Female Artist categories, Adele could add two to her total 18 wins.
Mind control, duh. Just a few bobs of her iconic black hat and Queen Bey would have us all getting into “Formation” and following her to our best lives. Speaking of nods, the Lemonade artist racked up an impressive eight BBMAs nominations, including Top Billboard 200 Album, Top Touring Artist, and Top Artist. swag.
She might be tiny, but this “Dangerous Woman’s” legendary locks would give her the ability to lasso tall buildings and hair flip any bad guys from “Side to Side,” all whilst serving face and vogueing the house down. With three nominations this year, Arianators can also hope to see her sweep up the BBMAs wins for Top Artist, Top Female Artist, and Top Social Artist.
Few artists have the ability to make time feel like it stands still, but Rihanna’s superpower would be just that. This rebellious island girl put in serious work, work, work last year, dropping smash hit after hit and had Anti fans seeing stars. Rihanna’s already snagged a staggering 12 BBMAs wins and with 14 noms this year, she’s poised to leave everyone pleading for her to “Kiss It Better.”
Since the This is Acting singer uses wigs and costumes to conceal her identity, it’s only logically that her superpower would be shape-shifting. Sia might choose to take the form of a “Bird Set Free,” or even a fellow shopper in a mall (who doesn’t love shopping?). Her smash-hit “Cheap Thrills” featuring Sean Paul earned her two BBMAs noms (Top Radio Song, Top Collaboration) and fans are hoping she can transform her nominations into wins.
Keep your eyes out because every Wednesday we will be celebrating #WCW by spotlighting one of the Top Female Artist nominees. So feel free to share your pictures with or of each nominee and tag @BBMAs on Instagram and/or Twitter.
