The final day to vote in our end-of-the-year "Best of K-Pop Awards" polls is upon us and as the last few hours slowly tick by the competition among the nominees is definitely heating up.

Vying for the title of "Best K-Pop Song of the Year," 2PM's "My House" continues to come in first but the margin between it and second has dwindled significantly. Bringing in 21.28% of the votes, "My House" manages to stay ahead of the rest but GOT7's "Just Right" and Big Bang's "Bang Bang Bang" aren't ready to call it just yet. With 14.58% of the votes, "Just Right" manages to hand onto second but coming in at 14.17%, "Bang Bang Bang" stands poised to overthrow the long-running second place holder.

Dropping to fourth, BTS' "I Need U" comes in with 12.8% of the votes while EXO's "Love Me Right" drops to fifth with 12.05%. Girls' Generation's "Party" makes a surprise appearance in the Top Ten, coming in sixth with 6.18% of the votes. Following suit, Big Bang's "Loser" makes a sudden appearance in the Top Ten, taking seventh with 4.63% of the total votes. Dropping to eighth, Super Junior's "Magic" comes in with 3.09% of the votes while SHINee's "View" falls to ninth with 2.06%. Jung Yong Hwa's "One Fine Day" claims 0.3% more votes than miss A's "Only You" to reclaim the tenth and final spot in the Top Ten with 1.39% of the votes.

In the category of "Best K-Pop Group of the Year," GOT7 manages to hold onto #1 with 26.01% of the votes but that doesn't guarantee they'll be walking away with this particular award. Coming in second with 23.28% of the votes, TVXQ could very well upset the order of the Top Three, that is if Big Bang doesn't do it first. Making an impressive jump into third, Big Bang claims 20.27% of the votes, knocking the former third ranked group, 2PM, down to fifth.

With 15.97% of the votes, BTS remains in fourth however the group has managed to triple their number of votes since yesterday and if they can continue the trend in these last few hours, they could find themselves ranked among the Top Three by the time the polls close.

Falling to fifth, 2PM brings in 7.63% of the votes while Girls' Generation remains steady in sixth with 3.08%. Likewise, SHINee holds steady in seventh with 0.76% of the votes while VIXX maintains their position in eighth with 0.43%. In another of several surprise moves, iKON shows up in ninth with 0.41% of the votes while BEAST claims tenth with 0.37%, knocking the former Top Ten contenders, FT Island into 11th, INFINITE to 12th and CNBLUE down to 13th.

Continuing the trend of surprise appearances and major upsets, GOT7's Jackson takes #1 in the category of "Best K-Pop Artist of the Year" with 38.58% of the votes. Following suit, Big Bang's G-Dragon comes in second with 13.42% , knocking the formerly ranked first, TVXQ's U-Know Yunho, down to third with 12.83% of the votes.

In another surprise move, Jung Yong Hwa climbs from the lower ranks to claim fourth as his own with 11.25% of the votes. Dropping to fifth, 2PM's Nickhun brings in 6.03% of the votes while TVXQ's Max Changmin falls to sixth with 5.46%. In similar fashion, GOT7's BamBam falls to seventh with 2.42% of the votes while label-mates Wooyoung, Junho and Taecyeon, from 2PM, fill the final three position of the Top Ten. With 1.56% of the votes, Wooyoung falls into eighth, Junho drops to ninth with 0.96% and Taecyeon falls to tenth with 0.73%.

Even the seemingly unchanging "Best K-Pop Rookie Group" category has seen a bit of an upset in the past 24 hours. While TWICE continues to dominate with 36.23% of the votes and Seventeen seems comfortably settled in second with 18.15%, the former third ranked group, DAY6 has been forced out of the Top Three by iKON. Coming in with 16.7% of the total votes, YG's rookie group now holds the #3 position.

Dropping to fourth, DAY6 holds 15.55% of the votes and with mere 1.15% separating them from their third place competitor, they could easily reclaim their position before the polls close. Remaining in fifth, Monsta X brings in 5.25% of the votes while UP10TION holds steady in sixth with 3%. N.Flying bring in 1.68% of the votes, which keeps them steady in Seventh while G-Friend remains in eighth with 1.53%. CLC continues to com in ninth with 1.15% of the votes while Oh My Girl rounds out the Top Ten with 0.75%.

Polls close today at 11:59PM EST which means there's still time for you to cast your vote but you'd better do it soon if you want to see your favorite songs, artists and groups walking away with one (or several) of this year's awards.
