And as per the announcement made earlier all the criteria for evaluation will also be done differently. As it was done in the earlier shows, fan votes won’t be a part of the process of selecting the musician, Album, or song of the year awards.
Moreover, other than that all the Worldwide Fans’ Choice of top10 awards and all the Worldwide Icon are going to be determined completely through the votes of the fan.
However, for the evaluation of these awards, votes from last year were based on the data collected from YouTube and Twitter. Even though the award show is held offline some of the criteria of the music are also collected from Apple Music.
