When you’re good to MAMA

MAMA’s good to you.

Ever since few years I’ve been high-browing (is this a word or am I just in some kind of delirium?) MAMA awards, knowing they’re just popularity ones. But! I’m a firm believer that even popular things can be good. I don’t reject a song that is liked by half a billion people like them hipsters or other insane creatures do. Good things can be popular and popular things can be good.
Yet this list…

So, both EXO sets have song titled Mama and I wonder will that do the charm, mehehe…

First, no UV with their awesome-kickass-hilarious song and MV “I’m Gonna Live with This Girl” makes this list completely irrelevant. Second, Hyuna’s song about some “Icecream” is nominated despite she DIDN’T perform it live yet and the song is 15 minutes old.
There is so much fail on this list I’m actually grateful they didn’t drag here some other artists. Waiting for GDA (Golden Disk Awards).
TVXQ should be nominated in Dance category, song sucks but the dance was awesome. Having SuJu nominated not TVXQ makes this even more funny.

None of the songs from OST category appealed to me. I love Seo Inguk, but this song is nothing outstanding, to be honest. If Urban Zakapa don’t win, I will be quite mad.
But probably PSY will win in all categories, so no need to be worked up.
