SNSD yang beranggota sembilan cewek cantik itu mendapatkan empat nominasi. Yakni, song of the year, best pop song, best dan/electronic song,dan netizens choice of best female artist of the year.

SNSD termasuk deretan grup vocal cewek yang sukses di Korea. Grup beranggotakan Taeyeon, Jessica, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona, dan Seohyun itu memulai debutnya pada 2007 dengan merilis album Girls’ Generation.

Di tengah gempuran grup vocal cewek dalam nominasi KMA 2010, ada SHINee sebagai satu-satunya boy band yang masuk nominasi untuk pop song of the year dengan single Ring Ding Dong.

Meski harus bersaing denga grup vocal cewek yang berpotensi membawa pulang award, SHINee tidak bias dipandang sebelah mata dalam kompetisi KMA 2010. Mereka kini menjadi idola cewek-cewek Korea.

KMA 2010 merupakan ajang penghargaan untuk insane musik Korea. Helatan itu terbilang prestisius karena penilaian KMA 2010 tidak berdasar populartia nomine. KMA 2010 lebih menilai berdasar sisi musikalitas.
