According to the notice posted on their website, the "Popularity Award" voting for the 2021 AAA is suspended for the time being. A technical problem occurred due to traffic caused by fans' enthusiastic support.

As a result, Asia Artist Awards organizers are now conducting an emergency server check. The schedule for resuming the voting process will be announced at a later date after the system has been fixed.

The 2021 AAA organizers concluded, "We apologize for the inconvenience and ask for your understanding."
