Top honors at MTV for Miley Cyrus.

The singer, who kept eyes glued to the music station’s VMAs this summer, was selected by MTV’s Music and News teams as the Best Artist of 2013.

Traffic data for the site paved the way for the award. Her artist page was the year’s most visited and her provocative performance with Robin Thicke was the most watched video of 2013.

Other notable achievements to consider include her album Bangerz, which charted at #1 and included the two #1 singles, “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball.”

Miley’s only the third in a recent line of honorees for Best Artist of Year. In 2012, those accolades went to Katy Perry and One Direction.

Here’s the full list from MTV:

1. Miley Cyrus

2. Macklemore and Ryan Lewis

3. Justin Timberlake

4. Kanye West

5. One Direction

6. Katy Perry
