Fifth Harmony, Austin Mahone, Shawn Mendes & More Nominated for 2015 Streamy Awards

The fifth-annual Streamy Awards nominations have been announced, and multiple chart-topping artists have made the cut.

The Streamy Awards, which honor the top videos on YouTube and the creators behind them, are determined by the Streamys Blue Ribbon Panel, which is made up of experts in the online video industry.

Fifth Harmony was nominated for their cover of Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk,” along with a cappella group Pentatonix, who was nominated for their cover of Michael Jackson’s “Evolution of Michael Jackson.” Both groups were nominated in the cover song category.

A new category was added to this year’s awards: breakthrough artist. Big names such as Tori Kelly, Austin Mahone, Shawn Mendes and Rachel Platten will go head-to-head for the award.

The final music category, original song, consists of nominees such as Alessia Cara for “Here” and Lindsey Stirling for “Take Flight.”

Tune in to the Streamy Awards on VH1 and various digital platforms on Sept. 17, 2015 at 10 p.m. EST. to see who won. Below are the three music categories, and you can head to Streamys.org for the rest of the nominees.
