We’ve also introduced a new category this year — Iconic K-Pop Group! It’s safe to say that K-pop dominated the music charts in 2023, with groups like TOMORROW X TOGETHER and Stray Kids both winning awards at MTV’s Video Music Awards.
The 2023 nominations also include major Young Hollywood stars like Olivia Rodrigo, Harry Styles and Taylor Swift. Taylor holds the record for most categories nominated for this year’s awards, as she has been nominated across 10 different categories — Icon of the Year, Iconic Female Star, Iconic Female Singer, Iconic International Star, Iconic Song, Iconic Music Video, Iconic Tour, Iconic Trendsetter, Iconic Couple and Iconic Fandom.
ICYMI, 2023 was pretty much Taylor’s year. She kickstarted her now-legendary Eras Tour, released Speak Now (Taylor’s Version), 1989 (Taylor’s Version), The Eras Tour: The Movie and was nominated for several Grammy awards. Oh, and she also became a billionaire in October, according to Bloomberg. Not only that, but she began one of the most-talked about celebrity relationships of all time with Kansas City Chiefs tightend, Travis Kelce.
The pop singer and NFL star’s relationship all began after Travis revealed that he attempted to give Taylor his phone number at one of her Eras Tour shows in July 2023. They made their first public appearance together in October 2023, and Taylor was spotted hugging and giving her boyfriend a kiss at the end of one of her Eras Tour shows that next month. Saying we’re obsessed is an understatement!
Be sure to vote for your favorites before Monday, November 10, to ensure that they win the 2023 J-14 Icon Awards.
