Mediacorp's annual Star Awards is happening on Apr. 24, 2022.

This year's edition will take place at The Theatre at Mediacorp.

And with that, comes a new list of the Top 40 Most Popular Male and Female Artistes, for 20 nominations per category.

Top 40 artistes in 2022

According to Mediacorp, the Top 40 were identified via a poll of 1,000 people representing an equal breakdown across the various age groups of Singapore's population.

The survey was conducted by an accredited market research company.

Here are the female celebs who made it:

Last year saw 30 nominees instead of 20 as Mediacorp combined 2020 and 2021 editions of the ceremony due to the pandemic.

There was therefore a total of 60 popular male and female artistes, up from the usual 40.

This higher number sought to better reflect the number of eligible nominees over two years of production.

  1. Liu Ling Ling
