Along with award presentations, many acts put on performances at the event. Mnet’s project boy band X1 was scheduled to participate, but as the “Produce” series has recently become mired in a vote-rigging scandal, they decided to cancel their appearance on Friday. The group received the “Global Rookie Top 5” award.

Local K-pop groups, as well as popular singers from around the world, such as Anne-Marie, Noo Phuoc Thinh and Afgansyah Reza also performed during the event.
