|Awarded for||quality vocal and instrumental pop recordings|
|Presented by||National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences|

|Most awards||Adele (3)|
The category was introduced in 2012 and combined the previous categories for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, Best Male Pop Vocal Performance and Best Pop Instrumental Performance. The restructuring of these categories was a result of the Recording Academy's wish to decrease the list of categories and awards and to eliminate the distinctions between male and female (and in some cases, solo instrumental) performances.
The award goes to the performing artist. The producer, engineer and songwriter can apply for a Winners Certificate.
Adele, with three victories, is the artist with the most awards in the category. As the inaugural recipient, she also won two times consecutively. Kelly Clarkson and Taylor Swift are the artists with the most nominations at four.
