EXO and BIGBANG win big at MAMA 2015

It was the battle of the boybands at this year's Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) which took centerstage in Hong Kong on Wednesday.

South Korean boyband EXO and BIGBANG each grabbed 4 awards and became the big winners of the night.

EXO took home Album of the Year, Best Male Group, Best Asian Style, and Global Fans Choice for Male artists, while BIGBANG was crowned Artist of the Year, Worldwide Favorite Artist, Song of the Year, and Best Music Video.

BIGBANG member T.O.P was so ecstatic, he tried to say thank you in every language he knows. Fellow bandmate Taeyang was able to articulate what the awards means to the band

"We received many great awards this year with great support from our fans. For us, MAMA has always been like a finale. We are truly thankful for the awards we won today. We will continue to do our best."

Taiwan singer Jolin Tsai won the Best Asian Artist. Best Male Artist went to Park Jin-young. Kim Taeyeon, leader of South Korean girlband Girls' Generation, was crowned the Best Female Artist.

"First of all, I would like to thank all of the people who like my solo album 'I'. Thank you, Mr. Lee Su-man, for giving me the opportunity to sing on the stage in the first place. All the staff in the S.M. Entertainment family, and my lovely members from Girls' Generation, and all my fans, thank you all for supporting me unconditionally."

Produced by a music television channel in South Korea, MAMA began as a music festival, and later on, evolved into a music show. The winners are chosen by a panel of industry experts while some categories are voted on by fans online. The organizers have taken MAMA to different Asian cities such as Macau, Singapore, and Hong Kong.
