Regardless that 2NE1 is on a break since last year, their influence and popularity are still both felt. As Blackjacks wait for the further announcement for their possible comeback soon, they remain supportive for the group and it was shown in the latest online poll wherein the girl band was hailed as the over-all winner.
In an article from KPopstarz, the PopCrush site organized an online survey and for the category of “Battle Of The Bands”, 2NE1 bested other groups including 5 Seconds Of Summer, Fifth Harmony, The Vamps, Little Mix, One Direction, Girls’ Generation and Rixton.
Last Tuesday, the Korean all-girl band was lauded as the champs of this 2015 Battle Of The Bands by PopCrush and they surpassed One Direction in the last round. It wasn’t an easy match-up for their fans as the final round is very tightly contested.
2NE1 accumulated with 50.1% of the total votes. Meanwhile, the British group garnered 49.9%. That’s really a tough call and with the little discrepancy of votes in between the final result, it showed how every single vote is important until the poll closed. PopCrush declared them as winners by posting an edited picture of 2NE1 with their respective crowns. They’re the queens of the “2015 Battle Of The Bands” as it presents.
In the first round, the group also encountered a tight match-up against Girls Generation wherein they got the 50.78% of the votes against latter’s 49.22%. For the semifinal round, it was a landslide victory as they got almost 75% of the total votes versus Fifth Harmony.
While they haven’t yet returned as a group, members are busy with their solo activities. According to Soompi, CL is preparing for her huge US album debut. Then, Dara stars for a major role in the KBS web-based drama series entitled “Missing Korea.”
What will be the next recognition for 2NE1? When will they return as a group?
