MANILA, Philippines - MYX, the No. 1 music channel in the country, announced on Monday the nominees for this year's "MYX Music Awards (MMA)."

For 2011, a total of 19 awards, including Favorite Artists, Favorite Group and Favorite Music Video, are up for grabs.

Yeng Constantino, Tutti Caringal of the rock band 6Cyclemind, Christian Bautista and Raymund Marasigan of Sandwich are among the nominees.

For the first time, MYX will also recognize the popularity of K-pop (Korean pop).

"We added one which is K-pop. We cannot deny naman the popularity of K-pop so I think we just give them that kind of recognition. Kasi sa ayaw at sa gusto natin ay mayroon talaga silang fan base... The offering becomes wider this year," said MYX channel head Andre Allan Alvarez.
