[Special] 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards – KPOPREVIEWED Choice

Welcome back to the next post in the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards series. For this post, I will be presenting to you who I think should be the winners in each category.

Just a quick reminder that this is not the official winners for the categories. Only you (the readers of the blog and avid fans who come to the site at the end of the year to vote for your biases) will be the one decide the winners of the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards. A post will be published next Saturday to announce the opening of the voting page.

As for Best Song and Best Artist of 2022, both of us will be deciding the winners for that (50% split of fan votes and my determination). And when voting opens next week, you will be able nominate your Best Songs and Artists of 2022. I will do the hard work once the voting closes to work out which song and which artist is ultimately the best of 2022.

For the purposes for this post and time constraints, I will not be announcing my choice of Best Song and Artist of 2022 in this post.

Due to the number of categories, I have elected to split this post into three pages.

  • To view the ARTIST-RELATED categories, stay on this page and keep on scrolling.
  • To view the PERFORMANCES, VISUALS and CHOREOGRAPHIES 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.

Anyhow, without anymore delaying, I present to you the KPOPREVIEWED Choice for the 2022 KPOPREVIEWED Awards.
