►►Official Line-up + Info for KBS Gayo Daejun released!
I’ve posted an entry earlier for SBS + MBC Gayo Daejun so here is the line-up for KBS Gayo Daejun!
Super Junior, SNSD, 2PM, SHINee, KARA, CNBLUE, 2AM, After School, Kiss, Sistar, FT Island, f(x), 4Minute, Secret, IU, T-ara, Beast, etc
Time: December 30st at 9:50PM KST – 12:30AM KST
On December 30th, the “2010 Gayo Festival” will take place and the show is expected to deliver some memorable performances.
The ceremony’s theme is “Harmony”, where it will be carried out through various special stages by the collaborations of many of today’s popular acts and veteran artists. One of the most exciting points of the night will be when SHINee’s Jonghyun, B2ST’s Yoseob, 2AM’s Changmin, and 2PM’s Junsu take the stage to perform Queen’s classic “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
The show will be broadcasted across the world in 55 countries, and viewers will see the “Song of the Year” be revealed and performed at the end of the night. The results will be calculated through digital and album sales, voting via text messaging, and show appearances. Who do you think will win?
A controversy arose earlier this month when YG Entertainment announced that their artists would not be participating in KBS’s “Gayo Festival“. In response to the flurry of questions over his decision, YGE’s CEO, Yang Hyun Suk, recently spoke out to clarify on the issue.
He expressed, “I believe that there is a difference in thought between KBS and YGE. We’ve decided not to have our artists attend the ceremony because we simply do not agree with the awards’ standards. We are against ARS texting votes, broadcast points, and live votes to determine results. Unfortunately, since KBS will use those methods, it led us to decide not to attend.”
He continued, “Just like how all broadcast programs only invite artists that they want on the show, decisions made by entertainment companies are autonomous as well. We hope that people don’t exaggerate a program appearance decision between two companies to be indicative of a conflict.”
Unlike MBC and SBS, who both got rid of the awards component of their ceremonies due to controversies on standards, KBS will be awarding one artist/team a popularity award.
