[Special/Awards] 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards – Announcement of Winners

Welcome all to the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards. Today, I will be presenting the winners of the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards. Since mid-November 2021 to the end of December 2021, you have been busy voting in the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards, selecting all the winners for each of the categories you will b seeing in this voting (aside from Best Side Track, the BLOG RELATED categories and Best Song of 2021, with the latter determined by 50% fan votes and 50% my Weekly KPOP Charts). And vote you all did! Many votes (much more than what I expected) were casted over this period, and I have over the last month been counting votes and preparing this Winners Announcement post.

As mentioned in the previous posts about the awards, the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Award is part of the 2021 Critics Award Circuit. Many of the other blogs who also participated have announced their winners for their own awards quite a while ago, so check the link above to see their winners!

Due to the number of categories, I have elected to split this post into four 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, PERFORMANCE and BLOG RELATED categories, click here or click the second page link at the bottom of this page.
  • To view the SONG-RELATED categories, click here or click the third page link at the bottom of this page.
  • To see who took out the BEST SONG OF 2021 category and the END OF YEAR CHARTS, click here or click the fourth page link at bottom of this page.

The post is very image-heavy, so if you prefer, a bandwidth-friendly version on Google Sheets is included in the link directly below this paragraph. It includes all of the nominees, winners, KPOPREVIEWED Choices, Honourable Mentions for the 2021 KPOPREVIEWED Awards on the first sheet and an extended version of the 2021 End of Year Charts on the second sheet (Top 200).
