Both Psy and Super Junior have been nominated for 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards! It looks like Asian music is being more and more recognized everyday.
Psy’s “Gangnam Style” fever shows no signs of letting up. He is nominated for arguably the biggest category of the night, “Best Video“. He will go head-to-head with the mega-stars of the moment, 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 the only non-English song in the running.
Super Junior is nominated under the “Best Asian Act” category. Recall that Big Bang was nominated under the “World Wide Act Asia Pacific Nominees” category eventually winning ‘Best Worldwide Act‘ at last year’s awards.
The winner of the ’Best Asian Act’ category will represent Asia in the “Best Worldwide Act” voting. The other nominated Asian acts include, Japan’s EXILE, China’s Hangeng (a former member of Super Junior), Taiwan’s Jolin Tsai, and Malaysia’s Yuna.
Make sure to VOTE now and show your support for Psy and Super Junior, as the voting for this category closes on November 9th!
The 2012 MTV EMA’s will take place at the Festhalle in Frankfurt, Germany, on Sunday November 11th
