Well, this time there has been a change in voting for MAMA as fans will have only one fan-voted category unlike every year wherein they usually have multiple categories to vote for.

For other categories of awards like Artist of the Year, Song of the Year, Album of the Year, and more, the winners will not be decided only by fans. However, they will have some role in choosing the final winners.
More than 45 South Korean artists have been announced as the nominees for pre-voting of Worldwide Fans’ Choice TOP 10.
