Year after year, our website is very privileged to reward those talented artists that have particularly impressed worldwide audiences either through their live performances or through the release of a hugely inspired studio record.

Our Awards are, as usually, split into two different categories, Artist Of The Year and Best Live Act, with an additional Career Award aimed to recognize and reward the outstanding career of an artist that has been highly inspirational and influential throughout the decades on an international level. 

The nominees for 2022 for Artist Of The Year are the following:
