Netizens are comparing the 'Mnet Asian Music Awards' lineups for 2015 and 2021.

On December 2, a post detailing the 2015 and 2021 'MAMA' lineups began trending on Nate's community message board Pann, and netizens are giving their input on the matter. According to the post, the '2015 MAMA' lineup included: Big BangiKONPsyCLGOT7Zion.TBTSPet Shop BoysJ.Y.

Meanwhile, the '2021 MAMA' lineup includes Stray KidsATEEZNCT DreamNCT 127Wanna OneTXTENHYPENJO1INIBrave GirlsITZYaespaKep1er, Street Woman Fighter, and Ed Sheeran.

Netizens commented, "'MAMA' needed to shorten the list. Last year, the artists didn't even have waiting rooms, so they had to wait in their cars before their performances," "Last year, all the actors got the waiting rooms, and the artists had to stay in the parking lot," "Let's see your viewer ratings fall," "At this rate, Ed Sheeran will receive the daesang award," and more.

The '2021 MAMA' is set to air on December 11 at 1AM PST.

Not to be that person, but I kinda stopped watching MAMA after my favorites stopped showing up. The stages, performances, and energy haven't quite been the same. There are other big acts that have performed in the past that I don't follow also so the magnitude and importance of MAMA has lowered a bit over the years to me.

IMO the 2015 lineup actually reflected the most popular artists in Korea that year (at least pretty well). This year's lineup should include IU, Lee Mujin, those trot singers who've been dominating charts. Then the lack of BTS etc wouldn't be as glaring. And they wouldn't have to worry about inflating the number of attendees with super-sized 4th gen groups.
