Welcome, all to the announcement of nominations for the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards! As mentioned on Sunday, this year the Awards will be slightly different to previous years. For an explanation of what is happening, click here to have a read of the schedule for the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards.
As mentioned in the previous post, the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Award is part of the 2021 Critics Award Circuit, which is currently underway with the announcement of nominations by The 555 Review, 108 Ent and deforestedmusic for their respective award ceremonies. As a result, the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED are happening a month earlier than usual, which means the eligibility period for the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards is now between 30 November 2020 to 24 October 2021. Songs released after 24 October 2021 will be considered in next year’s KPOPREVIEWED Awards.
These nominations are based on my thoughts and preferences from the year that has just passed. I have considered a wide range of acts, songs, albums, stages, videos etc. (including those I have not reviewed) as part of this year’s awards. Also, these awards are irrespective of the reviews that I have posted throughout the year – simply because my thoughts on artists and songs can change throughout the year.
PS. I tried to do something different this year with the announcement of nominees, by including pictures for the songs, artists and visuals nominated this year. I hope you can read them. I know for some, particularly the songs/album categories, the wording might be a bit too small. Don’t fret (or get angry at me). I have included a reader-friendly version on Google Sheets, which you can view by clicking the link.
Also, due to the number of categories, I have elected to split this post into three pages.
- To view the ARTIST-RELATED categories (including Best Male and Female Soloists, and Best Male and Female Group, collectively the Artists of the Year categories), stay on this page and keep on scrolling.
- To view the CHOREOGRAPHIES, VISUALS and COMEBACK RELATED categories, click here or click to the second page at the bottom of this post.
- To view the SONG-RELATED categories, click here or click to the third page at the bottom of this post.
So without further ado, I present to you the nominees for the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards.
Note: Pentagon’s Lovesick Girls cover was uploaded at the start of November 2020. However, I didn’t view the video until December 2020, and hence why it is eligible for Special Performance and Vocal awards.
