2012 Mnet Asian Music Awards

This year’s Mnet Asian Music Awards (more commonly known as MAMA) were held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on November 30. 2012 marked the 14th year since the awards started out as the Mnet KM Music Festival and it has since grown into one of the most important music events in the K-pop industry.

After controversy plagued the MAMA’s in 2009 and 2010, this year’s event was given the slogan ‘Music Makes One’ to promote belonging and a connection between artists and fans. The MAMA’s were broadcast in 85 countries as well as on the Mnet website and featured performances from some of the biggest names in K-pop and around the world, including:
