The 2016 Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) concluded with a bang as EXO, BTS and TWICE went home with top honours this year. EXO was the hot favourite to clinch the Album of the Year award for their third studio album, EX’ACT. They clinched the same award at the 2015 MAMA for their full-length album EXODUS.

BTS was visibly shocked at their name being called out as Artiste of the Year and thanked their fans in an emotional speech. Their studio album, WINGS, was well-received after its release this year, which led many of their fans to believe that they would be able to go home with one of the grand prizes this year.

Likewise, TWICE, which celebrated its first debut anniversary in October, was surprised to have been announced as the winner for Song of the Year. Their hit song, ‘Cheer Up’, has consistently done well on charts even months after its release.
