Update: “The Show” Announces Changes To Winner Scoring Criteria + Clarifies Concerns About Global Voting
Updated January 19 KST:
“The Show” shared a statement to clarify how global fan voting will be involved in the new winner selection criteria.
A source from “The Show” stated, “To further improve communication with global fans, we are in the process of reorganizing the app votes. We are not completely eliminating it. We will resume global fan voting once the reorganization is complete.”
SBS MTV’s “The Show” will be removing pre-voting from the total score calculations.
On January 18, “The Show” announced on their official website that they would be changing the scoring and voting system to calculate their first place winner.
The pre-broadcast score will now count for 85 percent of the total score, and it will be comprised of 40 percent digital sales, 10 percent album sales, 20 percent music video views, and 15 percent broadcast score. The remaining 15 percent of the total score will be based on live text message votes.
Previously, the criteria used by “The Show” did not include live text message votes. The pre-broadcast score counted for 90 percent of the total score, and it consisted of 40 percent digital sales, 10 percent album sales, 20 percent music video views, 15 percent broadcast score, and 5 percent pre-voting through the Star Play app. Live voting through the Star Play app counted as 10 percent of the total score.
