20151202_seoulbeats_mama_2Year-end awards season is kicking off tonight with the 2015 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) live from Hong Kong! With minor roadblocks along the way, the stars have gathered and the stage is all set for what is sure to be a memorable evening packed with performances from all our favorite groups!

The voting has been intense leading up tonight, with each fandom furiously battling to secure their favorites an award. With nearly every major group and artist making a comeback (or solo debut) this past year, most bets are off as to who will take home the trophies — especially for artist of the year which features a whopping 31 nominees.

Regardless of who takes home the big awards, this evening is definitely going to be filled with a variety of stages and surprises. Zion.T, CNBlue, GOT7, and BTS have been confirmed to kick off the awards ceremony that begins at 8pm KST.

We’re also expecting performances by Exo, Big Bang, Psy, Shinee, iKon, Taeyeon, F(x) and Pet Shop Boys, as well as JYP himself. What performances are you most looking forward to?

So, grab your snacks a drinks and tune in to watch the show live from Mnet’s Official Stream. Be sure to let us know your thoughts throughout the evening in our thread below!
