8 Can't-Miss Performances From the Mnet Asian Music Awards
Standout performances from the Mnet Asian Music Awards.
1. Taemin - “Guess Who,” “Soldier” & “Goodbye”
While once known for being SHINee’s youngest member, Taemin’s grown into his own as both a boy band member and soloist. His trilogy of songs at 2016 MAMA put many of the night’s other performers to shame. Kicking off with the dark funk song “Guess Who,” Taemin took things to a more soulful route with “Soldier,” which elicited huge cheers from the crowds. When he switched gears, and stripped down, into an intense EDM-driven interpretive dance to accompany his performance of “Goodbye,” Taemin proved why he’s one of the most popular young entertainers in Korea.
Taemin received the award for the best dance performance by a solo artist. This is Taemin’s first solo MAMA award outside of his group activities. SHINee has won the title for the best dance by a male group three times since 2012.
