The third annual edition of the show, slated to take place virtually at the Gocheok Sky Dome, previously announced performers BTS, Twice, Itzy, (G)I-IDLE, Stray Kids, ATEEZ, Red Velvet, Tomorrow X Together, Cravity, Weeekly and MAMAMOO.
This year, the ceremony will take place in December with no audience due to the global pandemic.
The awards are determined based on album and digital song sales, as well as votes from a panel of judges and fan voting based on data calculated since January of this year. February’s 2019 awards show ceremony included a Grand Prize and Listener’s Choice wins for BTS (as well as Best Album — Love Yourself: Answer, Idol Live Popularity and Artist of the Year awards), Year’s Dance Performer nods for Stray Kids, The Boyz and (G)I-DLE and Next Leader nods for Tomorrow X Together and Itzy.
