Welcome to the first (and incredibly important) stage of the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards – the announcement of nominations! 2022 has been another big year in KPOP, with massive comebacks from a huge number of KPOP groups and soloists, top notch performance, reunions of some of our beloved favourites, intense competitions between newly debuted acts, and so much more. And I have taken the mammoth task of nominating 6 entries under each category this year. I definitely do not want to burden you with that job! I did a bit of explaining how the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards will work in the Coming Soon post, so check that out if you have not read it yet!
Following this nomination post, I will be posting my KPOPREVIEWED Choice later on in the week, before opening it all up for your fan votes from the 26 November 2022!
Also remember that there are a BEST SONG and BEST ARTIST category as well, which will be decided by a mixture of your fan notes and my input! These will be equivalent to the Daesang awards you see at the Korean award ceremonies. Unfortunately, I won’t be including them in the Nomination post/pages. But keep those songs and artists in mind for when voting begins!
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.
Without further ado, I present to you the nominees for the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards.
