As soon as the voting portal for other awards was closed, MTV VMAs suddenly announced a brand new award this year surprising the audience.
MTV has just announced another Best nomination of this year’s VMAs. Candidates for the “moonman” statue of this award include: 5 Seconds of Summer, The 1975, BLACKPINK, BTS, Chloe x Halle, CNCO, Little Mix, MONSTA X, Now United, Twenty One Pilots. This is also the award that BTS won last year.
When VMAs announced their official nominations on July 31, BLACKPINK was completely “empty-handed”, causing dissatisfaction of fans around the world because they had many impressive achievements in the US this year. After that, VMAs quickly added a completely new award, included BLACKPINK as a “mistake correction”. According to statistics VMAs ratings have been steadily decreasing over the past few years, and 2019 VMAs ratings is the lowest ever.
Besides, putting BTS and BLACKPINK in the same award causing a “combat” between the two fandoms is not a bad idea, especially when both fandoms are very energetic because their idols’ comebacks are breaking into the US market. This action will definitely create a fight between the two most powerful fandoms in the world, attracting a lot of attention for the awards ceremony right before the opening.
After BTS has confirmed that they will perform at the upcoming VMAs, appearing in the nomination in the last minute whether the 4 YG girls will also be present at the VMAs? BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez will release the single Ice Cream on August 28, and VMAs will take place on the morning of August 31, which is very suitable for their first comeback live stage. If it is true, VMAs will receive a lot of attention for having the participation of both BTS and BLACKPINK.
