Update: It looks like EXO has been nominated for 4 awards! They’re also nominated for the “Artist of the Year” award! Also, it seems that the Nissan award was a mistake. They were not nominated, but they are nominated for the BC – UnionPay Song of the Year award!
EXO has been nominated for three Mnet Asian Music Awards, or MAMA awards for short.
They have been nominated for the Best Male Group of 2013 award. They have some pretty tough competition, including labelmates SHINee as well as Shinhwa, INFINITE, and Teen Top.
EXO has also been nominated for the Best Dance performance of 2013 award. They’re up against B1A4, BEAST, SHINee, and INFINITE for the award.
And finally, they have been nominated for the 2013 Nissan Juke Best Music Video award. This is one of the special awards, and they’re nominated for their “Growl” music video. Their competition is B1A4, SHINEE, BEAST, and INFINITE.
It’s amazing for EXO to be nominated for three awards and hopefully they win at least one. They have a chance, but at the same time it’s going to be pretty difficult, especially going up against the likes of SHINee and Shinhwa.
Voting will begin at 12:00AM KST and fans are awaiting eagerly to vote for their favorite new artists. You can wait for your chance to vote here. Online voting will count for 20% of your artist’s total score.
Other than online voting, there are other ways artists can achieve points, and that’s one thing that’ll make sure EXO gets at least 1 of their awards. EXO will for sure receive huge points for their album sales, which should’ve surpassed 1 million this year. That’s the most sales an artist has achieved since 2001 and that’s what sets them apart from everyone else.
Good luck to EXO . We look forward to the end results.
