Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance


Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance

The Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance is the latest in a series of awards recognizing superior vocal performance by a female in the pop category, the first of which was presented in 1959. The awards have quite a convoluted history:

*From 1959 to 1960 there was an award called Best Vocal Performance, Female, 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, Female
*From 1962 to 1963 the awards from the previous year were combined into Best Solo Vocal Performance, Female
*From 1964 to 1968 the award was called Best Vocal Performance, Female
*In 1966 there was also an award for Best Contemporary (R&R) Vocal Performance - Female
*In 1967 the award from the previous year was combined with the equivalent award for men as the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary (R&R) Solo Vocal Performance - Male or Female
*In 1968 the previous award was once again separated by gender, with the female award known as called Best Contemporary Female Solo Vocal Performance
*In 1969, the awards were combined and streamlined as the award for Best Contemporary-Pop Vocal Performance, Female
*From 1970 to 1971 the award was known as Best Contemporary Vocal Performance, Female
*From 1972 to 1994 the award was known as Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female
*Since 1995 it has been awarded as Best Female Pop Vocal Performance

In the years where more than one award was presented (1961, 1966, 1968), both are listed on separate lines.

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