MTV has named its first Artist of the Year, part of a Top 10 list that is dominated by female recording artists, USA Today reports.

The Artist of the Year is Katy Perry, who ran off a string of No. 1 singles to beat out stiff competition from a couple of other women. Coming in second on the list was Nicki Minaj, followed by Adele in third place.

The Throne, a collaboration of Jay-Z and Kanye West, came in fourth, with Lady Gaga rounding out the Top 5.

The rest of the Top 10, in order: Rihanna, Beyonce, Lil Wayne, Drake and Justin Bieber.
