    After demons and doughnuts, Scooter and Snapchat, Frankie and Focus, the Bad Gal has emerged....victorious.


    Baby loves, we have gathered to rate the discography of one Ariana Grande-Butera, one-time Nickelodeon supporting player turned the big-voiced diva of her generation. In the span of three short years, she has released three well-received albums, sold out an arena world tour, been nominated for two Grammys, notched seven Hot 100 Top 10s, and become a household name.

    Here's the fucking moonlight tea: there are 66 songs here, and very few are duds. If you're on the fence about taking part, I'd really suggest you do so. We're gonna have a lot of fun. Hope you're not allergic to lavender!

    - Rate all the songs with a score between 0-10.
    - Decimal points are allowed, as long as you don't get all 9.83765 on me. Be reasonable.
    - Commentary is encouraged!
    - This is a big one: DON'T TROLL. I will toss your scores out if I think you're trying to game the system. Be objective and fair, and rate each song individually.
    - You may give one track, and only one track, an 11.
    - Send me all these scores in a PM, in the same order as they are on this page. No separate Word docs/Excel spreadsheets please.

    I have done my best to find working, non-pitched Spotify and YouTube links for all the songs, but I cannot guarantee that they will work in all territories. You might have to do some hunting yourself, and I will do my best to help.

  5. Already iconic and I'm beyond perched.

    Santa Tell Me better get at least six 11s.

    I guess I'll finally have to listen to the Dangerous Women bonus tracks. Only for you @Laura Vanderbooben.

  7. I can't wait for Touch It to win!!!
  8. Will 'Nobody Does It Better' be included in the extras or is that not considered since it hasn't been "released" properly?

    Either way, so excited about this.
  9. Nope, it's just a leaked track.
  10. My 11 is going to be so unreasonable and I'm okay with this.
  11. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. So here for this.

    Thank God there's no limit for 10's.
  12. I can't wait for Put Your Hearts Up to win!
  13. If we're doing features, why are we not featuring E Più Ti Penso? I love Andrea Bocelli and Ari sounds gorgeous on it.

    If Honeymoon Avenue isn't at least top 10...

    Yes! I will be following this so much!

    It's going to be a massacre to get a top 10 placement. WHAT WILL WIN!?

    @wackseed, you don't want to miss another Laura rate.

  20. It's always a tough call to cut stuff but rates usually need to cull a few songs from the "extras" portion just so as not to overwhelm voters, really. I cut a few songs I saw as outliers that, honestly, I know will not fare well here: E Più Ti Penso, Over and Over Again with Nathan Sykes, Don't Be Gone Too Long with Chris Brown (never officially released anyway), the Victorious tracks and her song from 13: The Musical.

    If I get a big outcry to get something included of course I'll consider it, but I don't want to make dozens of people listen to a song that just one or two users really like, which is then trashed out of spite and gets cut first. No one leaves happy in that scenario.
