Novatardis Tuesday, April 11, 2017

is it true that voting is US only? Anyway, we are against Beliebers and Selenators. I'm not ready for fanwar and racist tweets.

Lol for real!! Racist tweets XD

GDYBMINO Tuesday, April 11, 2017

pikaajoy GDYBMINO Thursday, April 13, 2017

Hell yeah, represent K-pop!!!

skididdlepopper Tuesday, April 11, 2017

i think BTS will take this win. i'll be voting. and hopefully the rest of the kpop community comes together to give this win to kpop x33

Mehrvigne skididdlepopper Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Because where BTS pops the bubble, rips the seam, whatever metaphor you want to use, this could be a venue for more kpop acts to follow. It's time the world realizes what cool music is.

pikaajoy Mehrvigne Thursday, April 13, 2017

Preaaaach!!

"Top Social Artist"? What is this award for?

Mehrvigne hermesdragon Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Artist that is most connected to their fans and active on social media, such as twitter, IG, FB, etc. From what I gathered, it's like an award for the most fan interaction. At least, that's what I read.

pikaajoy Mehrvigne Friday, April 21, 2017

BTS deserves this award, especially with that definition of what the award is for, :)

I think, One of the reasons that popular korea wave in Asia...The height is higher and large body~18 years~28 years Man, Average heightS, KOREA - 5 feet 9inch (176cm), CHINA - 5 feet 2 (165cm), JAPAN - 5 feet 4.5inch (165.5cm), Thailand,Vietnam Etc. Southeast Asia - 5 feet 2.5 inch (159.5cm)

takeheart_bts cnrrnj Tuesday, April 11, 2017

You're kidding me right

pikaajoy cnrrnj Thursday, April 13, 2017

Lmfao, no.

pwswan cnrrnj Friday, April 14, 2017

And the one solo artist who cracked the US, for however long he bothered to do so, is 5'7". Figure that out.

unscrewedhorses Tuesday, April 11, 2017

'Top Social Artist'??  It'd be nice if they were nominated for something that sounded legit, but Top Social Artist?  Come on.

jcallen unscrewedhorses Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Lol I know right. I was like social what? Whatever I know I'll be voting anyway lol.

unscrewedhorses jcallen Tuesday, April 11, 2017

It sounds like winning Miss Congeniality at a beauty pageant lol. XD

jcallen unscrewedhorses Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Haha yes!

LveKimTae unscrewedhorses Tuesday, April 11, 2017

well top social artist is a pretty big category cause it shows how popular the artist is on social media. And we all know how social media is spread out nowadays.

Melina45d unscrewedhorses Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Um well its not a music category and tbh BTS is fairly new in the states and they're following is slowly getting bigger it would be weird if they were nominated for a music award considering their intent wasn't to cater to the western market but its definitely a big category and the fact that they're nominated regardless of them trying to cater to western fans mean a lot. The Top Social Artist award is based on the Social 50 chart, which ranks the most popular artists across social media platforms such as “Likes,” “Follows,” subscribers, track plays, artist page views, “followers” on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, VEVO, Spotify, SoundCloud, and other significant online networks and portals. So I wouldn't discredit this award just because you don't think it means much. Bts has to break into the western music market before they can start winning music categories like "best album". Lol lets take baby steps first.

How do you vote on the Billboard website?

Melina45d mxisluv Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Voting doesnt open until May 1st!

mxisluv Melina45d Wednesday, April 12, 2017

Am aware of that. But the voting page doesn't have instructions. There's a black screen with the words "LIVE for QA - 4/11 Login".

pikaajoy mxisluv Thursday, April 13, 2017

And don't forget you can vote through Twitter!!!

jcallen Tuesday, April 11, 2017

Good music first before fandom! Everyone who appreciates BTS' music, please vote. =)
