    The only thing that makes MAMA illegitimate this year is the fact that they did not put “Blue” and “I Love You,” the two fastest-selling K-Pop digital singles in history, under the “Song of the Year” award. And the fact that the “Catch Me” choreography was ignored and put “Beautiful Night” under the “Best Dance Performance” award for male groups.

      I agree with you on Blue and ILY.. I mean, come on! I ended up voting on Gangnam Style, instead. 

  • lokifairy

    I don’t take MAMA seriously since 2009. I mean come on they nominated Hyuna’s “Ice Cream” but not TVXQ under “Best Dance Performance”? And I agree with Niels, where the hell is “Blue”?! Their nominations are bullshit

    • 111Spanky

       why would blue matter we know who’s gonna win with gagnam style in the list?

      • lokifairy

         It’s not about who will win it’s about who SHOULD be nominated. “Blue” deserve a nomination!

  • ANANAS

    The nominations are BS. There is no denying that. I just want some different performances. They don’t even try to make it seem like the nominations are illegitimate.

    YG all the way.  I can’t wait to see what they are going to do

    I feel that GDA has lost their rep long ago, its so SM biased too as MAMA is YG bias. I cant take any of these awards seriously. I do think that MAMA beats GDA in performances wise. Mama is a show for fans but shouldnt GDA be better? I feel that is has failed in the past few years because as fans we already know who will win and what not. But it still holds some legitmacy but i cant take it seriously

      Technically, GDA just seems to be SM-biased because YG refuses to show up. If YG even let their artists attend the past 3 years or so, they could’ve easily won lots of awards on their own. And not to mention the fact that many SM artists do attend because they are nominated for Bonsangs simply because of their high album sales.

      • happy_slip

        that technical explanation can be applied to MAMA too actually, so both are pretty much even. happens in most awards shows anyway.

    • lokifairy

      You just have this feeling because GDA is more about album sales and YG also never show up so it’s their own fault ôo

      • moua23

        I thought YG artists are pretty up there tooo with album sales digitally and physically? BIGBANG? I think YG is like SM boycotting for obvious unfairness

          Not really. SuJu’s album sales are always higher than Big Bangs and SNSD’s album sales are of course higher than 2NE1′s. And SNSD are also doing well digitally.

    The fan vote irritates me in the MAMAs, because I feel obligated to vote, but at the same time, it feels like the biggest bullsh*t ever. And because I get angry at how Super Junior always wins.

    I really don’t like this award show because its so bias. 

  • severely

    I don’t really care about the actual awards, but there are usually at least a couple of interesting stages.

    I’m wondering what some of the newer acts (debuted in 2011 or 2012) will do. If any of them are even invited to perform. There are some really top-notch rookie groups that have debuted from outside of the big 3 in the past couple of years, and a big stage like this would certainly show that it’s not only the big acts that can put on a kick ass show.

  • ybkdik91

    Purely watch the award shows for the performances, my favorite will always be the collab between Lee Hyori & BigBang.

  • crv2

    I don’t really care about the award. For me it is ended in 2008. BUT those BB and 2NE1 performance are the best part of the show. They know how to perform, live sing.
    2008 MKMF–>legend
    2010 GDYBTOP–>BB represent
    2011 2NE1–> the most amazing show that night
    They know how to grab audience’s attention, worth to be waited.
    The way CL commands with ‘no no no no, na na na na’, man, she is the boss!
    sorry for spazzing

    ” Taeyang getting rather uncool for simply over-doing his performances now. Dude, back then your sexy-cool mix were just right”
    I hate to admit it, but it’s becoming true.
    2010 GDYBTOP definitely one of the best MAMA performance.
    I am too excited for Wang Leehom in MAMA this year.

    • Gaya_SB

      I’m looking forward to Wang Leehom too!

      • http://profile.yahoo.com/R5BKARJWK7NNOXYOIUSP76YJW4 Aj

        I wish he’d sing Change me.Its my favorite.

      • kk

        you saw taeyang in concert didn’t you LOL

        i swear he thinks it’s his solo concert or something

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/YQ53WK5K4DPXQ5DIBKDELB6WPE Camille

    MKMF 2008 still wins as my favorite MKMF/MAMA ceremony ever. The performances there are some of my all-time favorites too, especially the DBSK performance, Big Bang+Hyori performance, Wonder Girls’ tango remix of “Nobody,” the rookie stage with SHINee, 2PM, 2AM, and U-Kiss, plus Rain’s amazing performance.

  • kk

    Lee Hi has been confirmed to attend, a month after debut…the luxury of being in YG. I predict Lee Hi and Bom Scarecrow duet, with YG’s new girl group chorus making their first appearance, most likely masked…I mean, even though MAMA is crap, it is the biggest stage for K-pop in Asia.

  • happy_slip

    The Lonely + IATB performance 2NE1 did last year was just magical and unforgettable. The overall vibe of that performance was so good that it makes me sad that they won’t be attending this year; I would have loved to see them top that performance.

    Excited for BB and…MAMA’s rumored “super hyped” production of PSY’s Gangnam Style.

     I’m all for miss A performance..that’s all I matter in MAMA

  • Teena Alex

    I watched MAMA 2012. I think i expected too much. But this year was a disappointment in my opinion. the performances were eh, I felt like the rookies like ailee and b.a.p deserved to perform on the big stage. Ailee did a small intro performance but i felt she could have done better. I dont think rock music is her thing. B.A.P got to do a red carpet performance, but it would have been better if they got to perform on the actual stage. I actually missed Miss A’s performance. Their performances are what i looked forward to. i was happy Big Bang was there.
