Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance

Awarded for quality male vocal performances in the pop music genre
Country United States
Presented by National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences
First awarded 1966
Last awarded 2011

The Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance was a Grammy Award recognizing superior vocal performance by a male in the pop category, the first of which was presented in 1959. It was discontinued after the 2011 Grammy season. The award went to the artist. Singles or tracks only are eligible.

The awards have quite a convoluted history:

  • From 1959 to 1960 there was an award called Best Vocal Performance, Male, which was for work in the pop field
  • In 1961 the award was separated into Best Vocal Performance Single Record Or Track and Best Vocal Performance Album, Male
  • From 1962 to 1963 the awards from the previous year were combined into Best Solo Vocal Performance, Male
  • From 1964 to 1968 the award was called Best Vocal Performance, Male
  • In 1969, the awards were combined and streamlined as the award for Best Contemporary-Pop Vocal Performance, Male
  • From 1970 to 1971 the award was known as Best Contemporary Vocal Performance, Male
  • From 1972 to 1994 the award was known as Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male
  • From 1995 to 2011 it was known as Best Male Pop Vocal Performance

The award was discontinued in 2012 in a major overhaul of Grammy categories. From 2012, all solo performances in the pop category (male, female, and instrumental) were shifted to the newly formed Best Pop Solo Performance category.

Years reflect the year in which the Grammy Awards were presented, for works released in the previous year.
