    Hope Zayn wins.

    I am disappointed that Zayn only received one nomination. I think it is strange that they reduced it to only 3 nominations per category for most of the genres. Mind of Mine deserved more nominations. It is very shocking that Pillowtalk was snubbed.

    The nomination categories are a mess. It is a shame that Zayn is not getting the recognition he deserves for his music.
