2010 7th Korean Music Awards, February 10, 2010

About KMA, from an article last year: "The nominees are selected in a collective evaluative process by a committee of 52 judges with a variety of perspectives." The representative added, "No other aspect besides music is considered when selecting nominees. Musical value and the final product are the main concerns during evaluation."

The Korean Music Awards seeks to treat music as more than a mere form of amusement but as an art, and musicians as artists instead of entertainers. With such a basis, more attention is paid to albums and songs rather than singers, and musical achievement represents the standard rather than sales figures. The ultimate goal of the Korean Music Awards is to move beyond the mainstream vs. independent debate and to create a foundation upon which Korean music can progress in a balanced, positive manner.

most of it looks legit, but
Song of the Year
Girls' Generation - Gee


catchy, but beyond that, does it really have ANY musical value?

also, I haven't heard of a lot of these groups/people.

sounds like I'm gonna have a lot of new music 8)

I love SNSD and 2ne1 but I feel like I am playing the game 'one of these is not like the others'

Shinee? really?

Yes their songs were huge but based on the standards that they said they use, they just don't fit. I am 100000000% sure there was another r&b artist that could have been nominated instead of 2ne1.

It seems like I have a lot of youtubing ahead of me. I have never heard of most of these people.

Lol. I feel really lame for not knowing a lot of the nominees other than the mainstream artists... I must not know what real music sounds like. :C
