For the voting mechanics, A’TINs can both cast their vote through Billboard’s official website and via Twitter. To vote on Twitter, tweets must include the hashtag #BBMAsTopSocial and by mentioning @SB19Official. Twitter votes are only considered when it’s done from public accounts and users can only vote for one finalist and one category at a time. A re-tweet of a valid vote from public accounts also counts as a vote. Fans can vote up to ten times a day per category and platform. The voting period closes on May 22, 2:59 PM PHT.
SB19 consists of John Paulo Nase, Felip John Suson, Josh Cullen Santos, Stellvester Ajero, and Justin de Dios. The group is reported to release a new single titled ‘Mapa’ on May 16, Sunday.
