Best Female Pop Vocals

The Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance is the latest title given to a series of awards that recognizes vocal performance by a female in the pop category. It was first awarded in 1959 as Best Vocal performance, female. In 1961 the title was revised and given out as two separate awards, Best Vocal Performance Single Record Or Track and Best Vocal Performance Album, Female. From 1962 to 1963 the award went back to being singular and was titled Best Solo Vocal Performance, Female. The award was changed to Best Vocal Performance, Female in 1964. In 1967 both awards for Male and female was combined and awarded as the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary (R&R) Solo Vocal Performance - Male or Female. It was split again in 1968 and awarded as Best Contemporary Female Solo Vocal Performance. It was awarded as Best Contemporary-Pop Vocal Performance, Female in 1969. It was changed twice again, once in 1970 and then again in 1972, before the current title was introduced in 1995. Both Ella Fitzgerald and Barbra Streisand have won the award five times.
