Sarah Geronimo, Nadine Lustre and Alden Richards are some of the nominees of the 2016 MYX Music Awards.

The nominees for the 2016 MYX Music Awards were unveiled during a press launch on Tuesday night, February 9, at 12 Monkeys Music Hall and Pub in Makati City.

Viva artists Sarah Geronimo and Nadine Lustre lead this year's nominations with a total of 6 nods, including top categories such as Favorite Song, Favorite Music Video, and Favorite Artist.

Following behind them are Abra, Darren Espanto, Julie Anne San Jose, and Bamboo with five nominations each.

Other artists who also earned multiple nominations are Alden Richards, Kathryn Bernardo, Yeng Constantino, Erik Santos, and Juan Karlos Labajo, among others.

This year, music fans will get to choose their favorites in 17 categories.

Fifteen of these are dedicated to OPM artists while one category is dedicated to international artists. This year, MYX introduced a new category wherein their own panel of experts will get to choose the winner of a Special Award for Best Music Video.

MYX channel head Andre Allan Alvarez explained, "We also want to parang take notice of creations during the past year na hindi naman necessarily became ano… or those artists have very big fan base voters.

"We created this music video [category] para naman to encourage other directors, music video creators, producers, and artists to continue pushing the envelope [in] creating more exciting, vibrant music videos na hindi naman necessarily, you know, if I were to name… I think automatic sa consciousness na pag Sarah Geronimo or Darren Espanto, parang lagi silang pasok sa mga categories.

"In this particular case, we chose the ones that are not necessarily that high-profile. So we are hoping that we will encourage artists, music labels, and directors to come up with exciting music videos."

He added, "We are looking for the technical aspect, yung creativity. Hindi lang porke't sikat yung artist mananalo na. That goes to a different category.

"In this particular case, we’ll look at kung maganda ba yung ilaw, maganda ba yung konsepto, maganda ba yung execution ng gusto nilang iparating. So yun ang gusto naming kilalanin."

Aside from that, the country's leading music channel also introduced a new voting system for the awards show. This time, netizens can vote once per IP address, per category, per day. The voting started after the live nominations launch last Tuesday and will continue until March 13, at 11:59 pm.
