First of all, I’m not a vocal critic- just a casual listener and hardcore Sone.
If you’re thinking “Yuri deserved better blah blah blah”, I want you to know that I agree with you. But, unfortunately, this year she didn’t get to show off her vocals and didn’t have any music project aside from SNSD’s (whose real lives lacked in quantity this year), which is why she ended up in that position.
I thought Yoona and Sooyoung both really improved musically this year and deserved to be in higher positions. Tiffany and Seohyun continue to grow and obtain more and more control as the years go by and are definitely cementing their positions at the top.
Although Jessica did improve her quality from these past solos years (and by that I mean that in 2015-16 she used a lot of loud backtrack and quite honestly, went off tune a lot), her lack of consistency resulted on the tie. Sunny on the other hand… what a way to recover that energy, girl! I’m so proud of her and definitely wish to see more of that lovely yet powerful voice soon.
And Taeyeon? *inserts ironic voice* Who could’ve seen that coming? lol
