Mnet Asian Music Awards (MAMA) 2020 just wrapped up. The biggest names in the K-Pop scene have come to give amazing performances and receive the distinction they deserve after another year of hard work and breathtaking releases.

This year MAMA 2020 faces a new challenge with the "New Normal," prompting them to create "NEW-TOPIA." Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the year-end show was held as an "UNTACT" where artists prepared and performed extraordinary stages without a live audience and minimal contact. The whole awards show was held online and took place only in South Korea instead of the usual overseas shows in the past ten years. 

For the third time, top actor Song Joong Ki headlined the prestigious awards show. Moreover, this year's MAMA also included a star-studded presenter lineup which includes the likes of Lee Jung JaePark Seo JoonUhm Jung HwaIm Soo JungLee Da HeeYoo Yeon SeokJung Kyung Ho, Jeon Mi Do, Park Ha SunJeon Hye Jin, Girls' Generation's SooyoungKang Han NaGo Bo Gyeol, and many other big names in Korea's entertainment industry. 

Meanwhile, South Korea's top K-pop acts prepared and performed top-tier stages for their fans to enjoy. Big Hit Entertainment's BTS performed "ON," "Dynamite," and "Life Goes On," while TWICE performed "I Can't Stop Me," "MORE & MORE" as well as their unreleased track "CRY FOR ME" as a special stage.

Other artists such as GOT7, IZ*ONE, SEVENTEEN, ATEEZ, TREASURE, Stray Kids, MAMAMOO, TXT, Jessi, and TaeMin gave amazing performances. If you want to rewatch their performances, you may visit Mnet's YouTube Channel
