♥ J-Pop ♥ J-Rock ♥ K-Pop ♥

YG artists swept up most of the awards that night. 2NE1 (including Park Bom’s solo song) won 5 awards, Taeyang with 1 award and Gummy with 2 awards. JYP artists also did rather well with Miss A scoring 2 awards, and 2PM with 3 awards. However similar to last years MAMA, there were a lack of SM artists. A number of them were nominated such as Super Junior, BoA, SHINee and SNSD. But they did not grab a single award which had a number of fans expressing their frustration on twitter. Boices (CN.Blue fans) were also frustrated over the fact that the “Best New Male Artist” award was cancelled, as they had high hopes on CN.Blue scoring that award. Some even stated MAMA=Missing Artists, Missing Awards. Although i understand and kinda agree with what they said, but nonetheless, i think most of the artists who won that night deserved it. So congrats to them.

Performance wise, Big Bang and 2NE1 totally rocked it out on stage. 2NE1 performed “Follow Me” and “Clap your Hands” while Big Bang hit it off with Taeyang’s “Break Down, “I Need a Girl”, T.O.P’s “Turn It Up”, and Hallelujah. Too bad Daesung and Seungri could’nt make it to the event, but the trio delivered a strong performance anyway. I especially liked Taeyang’s performance of “I Need A Girl” as he walked up to Dara and took her up on stage to dance with him. Big Bang’s performance of “Hallelujah” was amazing too with all the dramatic scenes of them pointing guns at each other. As for Wonder Girls, they made a grand entrance on what appears to be cloth hanging from the ceiling. They sang “So Hot”, “2 Different Tears” and “Nobody”. It was an enjoyable show and i wish i was able to tune in earlier rather than only after half way through the show. But i’m thankful i managed to watch the performances which i was really looking forward to. :)
