The Asia Artist Awards 2021 is returning bigger and better. So far, four K-pop acts - Aespa, THE BOYZ, Stray Kids, and SEVENTEEN - have confirmed their participation in the awards show. Recognition from the AAA makes quite a lot of difference as it has been one of the top music award shows for Korean artists.

All the groups confirmed for the lineup are also nominated for the Popularity Award category, for which fandoms have been hard at work since AAA 2021 released the nominations.
