On December 2nd, 2016, Mnet Asian Music Awards (AKA MAMA) was held. A number of k-pop singers attended the event and they adorned the award show with splendid performances. Many K-pop singers such as Exo, Taemin, Dean, Twice and other artists showed up. However, K-pop singers were not the only attendees. Wiz Khalifa, Timbaland, Gallant, and other well-known international artists also came. As well as the singers, celebrated actors such as Bo-Gum Park, Hyo-Joo Han and others also participated.
There were several outstanding performances that caught people’s attention. The awards started with a kid tap dancing on the stage and it involved a lot of collaboration stages, which made the audience cheer. For the collaboration stage, G-friend and Seventeen included a couple performance in their choreography, which brought the jealousy of the fans. Suzy and Baekhyun also collaborated, and it was their first time to perform an actual stage together. They released a collaborated song “Dream”, but they never performed on the official stage. This made the fans’ heart pound with excitement.
K-pop singers and the internationally celebrated artists collaborated too. The stunning performance of Eric Nam and Timbaland made the other artists to applause. They actually released a song a week ago and caught people’s attention by showing a great outcome.
The awards ceremony was the 2016 wrap up stage for most of the artists. For these reasons, they performed astonishing performances with their best-known song of the year. Exo filmed a short video that reflected the problem of current society and showed it before their performance. They created a story within the song so a number of people commended.
In addition, different kinds of awards were given to the artists. Exo won the best style award, the best boy group award, and the album of the year award. Twice won the song of the year and Got7 won the worldwide favourite award. There were 21 awards given to the artists and this was the outcome of their effort.
There are Seoul Music Awards, Golden Disk Awards, and several other year-end awards and festivals. People are willing to watch more splendid performances throughout the remainders of 2016.
