Exo announced on 1st MAMA lineup
Exo and members of Big Bang are among artists announced on the first lineup for the 2014 MAMA, or Mnet Asian Music Awards, on Dec. 3.
The event will be held at Hong Kong’s AsiaWorld-Expo Arena.
Despite the recent departure of its two Chinese members, boy group Exo, who released the digital single “Overdose” earlier this year, will perform on stage.
G-Dragon and Tae-yang of Big Bang will also make it onto the MAMA stage.
Taeyang released his second solo album in June. Its title track “Eyes, Nose, Lips” topped major music charts for its lyrical portrayal of a breakup.
On Monday, the annual music awards hosted by CJ E&M released the full list of nominees for each prize section, from newbie of the year to best solo male artist.
The awards honor musicians through 17 sections. Music fans are able to cast their votes for their favorite musicians or their favorite performances of this year through Dec. 3.
Girl group Crayon Pop, rapper G-Dragon, diva Lee Hyo-ri and lead vocalist CL of 2NE1 were some of last year’s MAMA winners.
