We asked you to vote for your Top 5 in various categories earlier this month and, as always, you came out in the hundreds to cast your votes! As we happily welcome 2020, it is time to reveal the results of our 3rd annual Top 5 rankings!
Your votes helped to create Top 5 lists of SNH48 Group related songs, stages, music videos, events, and original content. As with last year, we do not include ranking of members (that is what elections are for) or events associated to a specific individual (like Li YiTong’s graduation).
Here we go for 2019!
Our first two categories are “Top Stages” and “Top Songs.” These had to have been released in 2019 and be original.
TOP 5 STAGES
TOP 5 SONGS
3. “Who Is Your Girl”"Who Is Your Girl" is one of the songs from the SEN7ES 4th EP "NEW PLAN" released in November 2019. This song is particular because it was recorded in Mandarin and, for the first time, in Japanese. (SEN7ES)
The next two categories are “Top MVs” and “Top Events”. MVs had to be original and have been released in 2019 while the events had to have taken place during same year.
TOP 5 MUSIC VIDEOS
