[Special] 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards – Coming Soon

Award season has crept up on us again as we find ourselves in November/December. And per usual, it is time to announce that the KPOPREVIEWED Awards is coming back for 2022. For those who have not been following the blog, I have been holding a little award ceremony on this blog each year since 2013. The winners in the first few years have been determined my personal choices. And over the last few years, the the KPOPREVIEWED Awards have evolved to being determined by a mix of fan votes and me!

This year, it is all happening again! I set the nominees, but it is you that will get to decide the Best Groups/Soloists, Best Performances etc. As for Best Song and Best Artist, both you and I will have a 50/50 split in saying which song and artist was the Best of Best in 2022.

Eligibility Period

For this year, the eligibility period for song and artist nominations is between 25 October 2021 to 31st October 2022. That means if your favourite artist released music on or between these dates, they have been considered by me for nominations. And if your favourite song release happens to have dropped between these dates, it is eligible for the Best Song of 2022 award.

As for albums, any albums released between 25 October 2021 to 30th September 2022 were considered for the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards.

Any song release or artist who makes their first comeback of the year following 31st October 2021 will be considered as part of next year’s KPOPREVIEWED Awards. Any albums released after 30th September 2022 will be considered in next year’s KPOPREVIEWED Awards.


What awards will you get to vote for and determine the winner for? I have broken it down into 3 groups:

  • Fan voted categories – these awards are determined by your fan votes.
  • Mixed – these awards are determined by a 50/50 split of fan votes and myself.
  • KPOPREVIEWED categories – these awards are determined by myself only.

*Split into male and female categories
#Split into Japanese and Western categories
