It is almost that time of the year where you get to pick who was the best of the year! Without a doubt, 2020 has been one intense year. But nonetheless, we were treated to many great comebacks, debuts, songs, music videos and performances throughout the year. But who was the best group in 2020? Which songs were your favourite? Very important questions that I must ask to deliver the 2020 KPOPREVIEWED Awards!
Voting for each category opens on the 1st of December 2020 at 12:00 am AEST. And like over the previous few years, you will be able to vote in an increased number of categories including (gendered categories are all separated and not combined – they are only combined for this list):
- Best Female / Male Group
- Best New Female / Male Group
- Best Female / Male Soloist
- Best New Female / Male Soloist
- Best Subunit
- Best Mixed Group
- Best Band
- Best Rap Performance
- Best Vocal Performance
- Best Female / Male Choreography
- Best Music Video
- Rising Star of 2020
- Most Underrated Artist of 2020
- Best Concept [New Category]
- Best Costume / Outfits [New Category]
- Best International Song by an Korean Artist
- Best OST [New Category]
- Best Side-Track or B-side [New Category]
- Best Album
- Best Song (Title Track)
In addition to the above categories, there are a few awards that I will be determining the winners for themselves, including all awards relating to the Weekly KPOP Charts and a few surprise ones that you will find out at the end of January 2021, when all the winners will be announced. Voting will close, per usual, at 11:59 PM AEST on the 31st of December 2020.
And like last year, your votes for the Best Song (or Title Track) award will be counted towards the final 2020 KPOPREVIEWED Awards End of Year Charts. The charts will be determined by your votes (accounting for 50% of the charts) and my Weekly KPOP Charts (accounting for the other 50% of the charts). There will be slight changes to the way I calculate the charts this time around (i.e. I will be basing the Weekly KPOP Charts side of the End Of Year Charts on the number of votes given the song with the most fan votes) and I will fully explain the changes at a closer date to publication of the awards/charts).
But that is all you will need to know for now. Keep your eyes peeled for the voting page coming your way on the 1st of December 2020. Share it to you your friends and be ready to have your say in the 2020 KPOPREVIEWED Awards.
