As 2015 comes to an end and the music industry begins to tally the year's best-selling albums, it is clear that Justin Bieber's "Purpose" will end up high on that list. Scooter Braun and his team worked hard in repairing Justin Bieber's tarnished image and mobilizing his fans to help Justin achieve the biggest debut of the year, before he was quickly dethroned by Adele the following week. Just like Justin, Ariana Grande, another Scooter Braun-managed act, also had a successful year with two Top 15 singles on the Hot 100, and her next album is one of 2016's most anticipated music releases.
Although Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande were two of the most-talked about and well-received artists Scooter Braun manages, Scooter wasn't able to duplicate that level of success with a lot of other artists he's currently managing. You might recall seeing these artists inexplicably snag prime promotional slots at award shows and late night shows, without ever once hearing their songs on the radio. This list looks at the Scooter Braun-managed acts that made you ask a very important question this year: "Who is this person and why are they here?"
