Soompi Gayo Awards 2011 Nominees: Vote Now!

**Vote for the Top 10 Singers of 2011**

This is our seventh annual Soompi Gayo Awards event to recognize the top performers in Korean music in 2011, and we promise this year’s awards will be the best.  Once again, the 2011 Soompi Gayo Awards will be announced on New Year’s Eve, December 31. 

To take this award to the next level, we are proud to partner with MYX TV for the first time this year, and they will broadcast the award show on January 10, 2012.

As always, we take pride in achieving a fair result by utilizing many different sources for our music chart.  We expect these awards to be given to the artists whose songs achieved the highest popularity in Korea this year.  The awards categories will be the same as last year, except we merge the mixed group and duet awards into one single award. Once again, you, the fans, will vote for the Top 10 Singers of 2011!

For the Top 10 Singers of 2011, you will be voting from 40 singers who have been in the music industry for more than one year and have received the highest scores combined on our weekly music chart in 2011.  From this pool, you can vote for three singers.  Your first choice will receive five points, second choice three points, and third choice one point. Like last year, each member can vote every 24 hours.  If we discover any cheating, we reserve the right to abandon the results of the voting.  The voting deadline is December 28, 11:59 PM PST.  Your votes will count for 40%, while the other 60% will be based on the singers’ accumulated chart scores (complete details below).

Album of the Year: The full album that accumulated the highest overall score on all its songs. Note that if a song is first released as a digital single and later included in a singer’s full album, the song’s score as a digital single will also be counted towards the full album score.  The nominees are:

Via tokyohive:

Korean idol group 2PM concluded their “2PM Arena Tour 2011 ‘Republic of 2PM’” at the Nippon Budokan on December 21st. Touring 5 locations with a total of 9 performances, 2PM reached out to a total of 100,000 fans. During the final encore, 10,000 fans sang “Hanarete itemo” surprising the boys. 2PM thanked the audience with teary eyes by saying, “We were deeply moved by everyone’s surprise event“. 2PM is already scheduled to have a 6 day performance at Nippon Budokan.

2PM performed a various array of their hit tracks. They started out with upbeat dance numbers like “HOT” and “Hands Up” followed by their first Japanese single, “Take Off“. They even performed their top Korean hits such as “10 out of 10” as well as their popular necktie dance in “I’m Your Man“.

For the solo performances, audience members got a glimpse of the many talents the boys of 2PM have. Junho and Wooyoung performed together where Junho wrote the song, while Wooyoung choreographed and designed their outfits. There was also a dance number performed by Taecyeon and Nichkhun. Chansung, who is currently starring in the hit TBS drama ‘Kaito Royale‘ performed an impressive sword battle. Junsu also showcased his artistic side by performing an original song.

While reflecting on their tour 2PM remarked, “It’s hard to believe that our first arena tour is over. Thank you so much. When you’re tired or when it’s hard, we hope that you can look back at this moment and get energy and power from it. We hope to continue making great music. Let’s see each other again at our next live!
