Leading stars Super Junior and recently gaining popularity PSY have both been nominated at the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards.
Psy’s “Gangnam Style” fever shows no signs of losing steam. He has been nominated for most probably the biggest category, “Best Video”. He will go head-to-head and compete with mega-stars such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, M.I.A, and Rihanna. This is a tremendous achievement. Aside from being the only male in the “Best Video” category, “Gangnam Style” is also the only non-English song in the running.
Upon hearing the news, PSY tweeted “OMG~!!! I am nominated ‘BEST VIDEO’ at #EMA~!!! 유럽 MTV 시상식(EMA) 베스트 비디오 후보 올랐다네요…비현실적임 ㅠ,ㅠ~!!!! ㅋㅋpic.twitter.com/RpJWlLEH.”
On the other hand, Super Junior has been nominated in the “Best Asian Act” category. Big Bang was also nominated under the “World Wide Act Asia Pacific Nominees” category eventually winning “Best Worldwide Act” at last year’s Europe Music Awards.
The winner of the “Best Asian Act” category will be representing Asia in the “Best Worldwide Act” category. Others that have been nominated include Japan’s EXILE, China’s Hangeng (a former member of Super Junior), Taiwan’s Jolin Tsai, and Malaysia’s Yuna.
