Rapper/singer Elmo Magalona and Popstar Sarah Geronimo lead the star-studded nominees in the 12th MYX Music Awards in March.
Elmo tops all nominees with seven nods including Favorite Music Video, Favorite Song, Favorite Artist, Favorite Male Artist, Favorite MYX Celebrity VJ, and Favorite Collaboration and Favorite Media Soundtrack alongside his love team partner Janella Salvador.
Sarah comes in second with five nominations, which include Favorite Music Video, Favorite Song, Favorite Artist, and Favorite Female Artist. Her song “The Great Unknown” with band Hale is also nominated for Favorite Collaboration, putting her head-to-head with Elmo in all her nominated categories.
Other OPM artists who bagged a handful of nominations are The Voice Kids alumnus Darren Espanto, MYX’s very own VJ Sharlene San Pedro, and James Reid. Last year, it was James’ girlfriend and on-screen partner, Nadine Lustre who emerged on top of the Awards Night with five wins out of six nominations.
Last year’s Favorite Media Soundtrack winner Kyla, competes again with JaDine in the same category for her song and the love team’s teleserye soundtrack, Til I Met You, against the couple’s This Time. Last year, Kyla and the ‘It’ couple also battled in the same category with their songs “On The Wings of Love” and “Hanap-hanap,” respectively.
