Here Are All The Incredible Performances & Winners Of MAMA 2021

End of the year award show season is fully upon us! And we couldn’t be more hype about it after watching the Mnet Asian Music Awards 2021.

The show took place this year at CJ ENM’s Contents World in Paju City, Gyeonggi Province on December 11. Although some big names in the Kpop world including BTS, Blackpink, Twice, Seventeen and IU were missing from attendance this year, the show still proved to be just as enjoyable with fantastic performances from some of the most popular and up-and-coming acts in Kpop.

We have compiled all the performances and the full list of winners from the show for you. So, check out all the performances and the winners and let us know your thoughts on the MAMAs this year in the comments!
