Melon Music Awards Crown 2012′s Top Artists

December 20, 2012

On December 14, Melon hosted their 4th annual Music Awards at Seoul’s Olympic Park Gymnastic Stadium to recognize the top artists of the year. Hosted by H.O.T‘s Moon Hee Jun, g.o.d‘s Danny Ahn, BEAST‘s Lee Kikwang, and Infinite‘s Woohyun, the two-part awards ceremony aired live on MBC and featured performances from over a dozen of today’s hottest idols and artists.

Though not in attendance, PSY came out on top with Song of the Year, as well as the Global Star Award, while BEAST won both Artist of the Year and the Netizen Popularity Award. To nobody’s surprise, Busker Busker won Album of the Year, while fellow rookie artists Ailee and B.A.P were crowned Best Newcomers. Special performances from the 2012 Melon Music Awards included a powerful duet rendition of “You Raise Me Up” by Huh Gak and Ailee, along with a rap version of K.Will‘s “Please Don’t” featuring Infinite H. Many of the Top 10 Artists winners also performed their own set of songs, from 2NE1‘s “I Love You” to SISTAR‘s “Alone” remix and T-ara‘s santa rendition of “Sexy Love.”
