CNBLUE, GOT7, BTS, and Zion.T have already been confirmed as the first set of artists to perform at the awards ceremony.

Previously, MAMA representatives had remained silent about YG Entertainment artists being excluded from the awards. CJ E&M and YG Entertainment has recently experienced tension most notably due to iKON‘s exclusion from the “M!Countdown” music chart. Even hours before revealing the nominees, MAMA officials did not comment on whether YG would be represented and stated that the final line-up was still not confirmed.” Since various YG artists have been nominated, perhaps the tension will ease. Looks like we’ll have to stay tuned as to whether or not YG artists will be present at the awards.

The awards ceremony will take place in Hong Kong on December 2. Voting starts at 7 p.m. KST. You can vote here.
