It's time, again, to look at what Popjustice readers have made out of everything pop threw their way in a twelve month period.

Who'll win the coveted Social Media Arsehole Of The Year title? Who was 2015's Total Hero, and who turned in the year's shoddiest video? How about impress­ive comebacks, song­writers of the year and so on? There's all that and more.

Hold tight!
