(Hello! We have been nominated as the Best Southeast Asia Act in the MTV EMAs 2020. It really is our dream for Ben&Ben’s music to reach other parts of the world and this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will really help if we win.)

Ben&Ben will be vying for the title against Indonesia’s Agnes Mo, Singapore’s Benjamin Kheng, Malaysia’s K-Clique, Thailand’s Violette Wautier and Vietnam’s Jack.
