While EXO did not take home the Best Worldwide Act award at this year’s MTV EMAs (congratulations to female pop singer Chris Lee from China for winning), they succeeded in gaining first place on the MTV EMA Social Buzz, beating very strong competition. Fans of the nominated artists competing continuously tweeted with the hashtag #EMAzing followed by their favourite artist’s name as many times as they could in order to see who got the most mentions that evening to become the eventual winner.
During the event, Kris and Suho also happened to meet two very familiar faces that some readers may remember from the sixth series of The X Factor UK – John and Edward Grimes aka Jedward.
The Irish twins seem very enthusiastic about Kpop music. They have already met the likes of BIGBANG and PSY at previous MTV EMA shows and befriended them right away. Now EXO‘s leaders have been added to the list of Kpop stars the brothers have been lucky to meet. Jedward updated their Twitter with some pictures of meeting Kris and Suho. Check them out below:
EXO Kris and Suho and Jedward AWHOOO! @PlanetJedward Great Talking About Music!
EXO Rocks! ShoutOut to all the fans we told Kris and Suho how great you guys are! @PlanetJedward
Their last EXO-related tweet for the day happened to be this:
We are One! We are Jedward! 🙂 XOX
