K-pop artists have dominated the Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) since the event’s inception in South Korea.
However, numerous Asian musicians have won awards in multiple categories, including Best Asian Artist awards and those for lifetime achievement in the field. They have received recognition both within and beyond their field for these successes.
The awards event was held in Seoul for the first time in 1999 and was telecast on Mnet. To my knowledge, this was the inaugural presentation of this kind.
The MAMA has not only been held in South Korea between 2010 and 2017 and again in 2019, but in a number of other Asian countries and towns. It is also currently streamed online outside of Asia.
Where Did It Begin
In 1999, what is currently known as the Mnet Music Video Festival began as a music video awards show. This event was named after the MTV Video Music Awards from which it took its inspiration.
Since merging in 2004, it has been known as the Mnet KM Music Video Festival. Prior to that, it had been known as the KMTV Korean Music Awards.
The international media started paying attention to the awards show after the global popularity of Hallyu skyrocketed in the middle of the millennium.
As a result of Hallyu’s massive success in South Korea, this happened. It first aired on television in China and Japan in 2008.
The Mnet Asian Music Awards 2022 voting processes are outlined below.
The Old Approach Is Outdated
There has been a change to the MAMAs voting system for this year, and participants can only vote once in each category. They had previously been able to cast ballots for the MAMAs across multiple categories, but this year they will only be able to do so in one.
MAMA has opened up voting for the category “Worldwide Fans’ Choice Top 10” to give the audience a chance to have their say.
Winners in other categories, such as Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and others, will not be decided solely by popular voting. The Grammys are a part of this. Nonetheless, they will play a significant role in deciding the ultimate victor.
As of this writing, the Worldwide Fans’ Choice TOP 10 competition’s preliminary voting has nominated more than forty-five South Korean musicians as potential winners.
Additional Information Regarding the MAMA 2022 Voting Procedure
Users of both Apple Music and Twitter can participate in polls and cast their votes.
Fans who want to vote for the Apple Music Playlist must first go to the page dedicated to the 2022 MAMA voting for Apple Music.
Simply scroll down the page until you reach the bottom, then click the button that says “Vote now on Apple Music.” After that, you will need to carry on with the other procedures in order to cast your vote.
Apple Music claims that by listening to songs from the aforementioned playlist, subscribers can participate in a vote for Worldwide Icon of the Year. Those who don’t pay for Apple Music won’t be able to cast a ballot.
A thirty-second break is required before a song may be counted as a vote, and a song can only be counted as a vote the first five times it is played using an Apple ID on any given day.
Not only on the official MAMA website but also on Apple Music, followers can cast their votes for the Worldwide Fans’ Choice TOP 10 list of artists.
Fans also have the opportunity to cast their votes for the Worldwide Fans’ Choice TOP 10 by tweeting using the right hashtags. For more interesting updates your comment on TheActiveNews.Com.
