While the The Recording Academy included some massively talented stars among its list of 2018 Grammy Awards nominees, voters were out of their minds to forget the likes of Harry StylesDemi Lovato and more of pop’s heaviest-hitters. To rectify this, PopCrush has instituted the Alt Grammys, through which we’ve nominated some of the year's most overlooked talent for categories like Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Album of the Year.

Check out the nominees for Album of the Year below, which include Harry Styles' self-titled LP, Dua Lipa's self-titled LP, Paramore's After Laughter, BTS' Love Yourself and Demi Lovato's Tell MeYou Love Me and be sure to vote for your favorite until January 24. Then, check back with PopCrush on January 25 at 12 p.m. EST, when we’ll announce the winners for each category. And don’t forget to tune in to the 60th annual Grammy Awards on January 28 on CBS!
