MYX has officially announced the nominees for the annual awards show MYX Music Awards 2018.

Sarah Geronimo and Jona lead this year's nominees with five nominations each out of 17 categories.

Jona is grateful for the music channel for always including her as a nominee through the years. The 28-year-old singer hopes to win an award this time around. In an interview with the MYX VJs after the announcement, Jona said she considers 2017 a very fruitful year after the success of her eponymous first album under Star Music.

The Star Magic talent told VJ Turs, "Last year, nag-launch ako ng first album ko under Star Music. So far, ang ganda ng takbo kasi maraming songs na naging theme songs ng mga movies of Star Cinema. And then, I had a concert na PrimaJONA at The Theater in Solaire.

"Maraming opportunities, maraming blessings so sana this year din mas ano pa... Ang gusto ko lang naman talaga makagawa ng mas maraming songs, music. Marinig ng mga tao pa yung materials ko. Hoping for more collaborations din this year sa mga magagaling natin na local artists."


New MYX VJ Iñigo Pascual was surprised to see himself nominated in the Artist of the Year and Male Artist of the Year categories.

The singer/host expressed, "Sobrang masaya po siyempre, and to be nominated is already a blessing. Siyempre yung mga kasama ko mga idol ko talaga and masaya ako na makasama sila in that category. It inspires me to work harder and of course, be more creative, try new things."


Dancers-turned-singers Ella Cruz and Julian Trono were both surprised to have their song "Tumalon" nominated in the Collaboration of the Year category. Both Ella and Julian have attended the MYX Music Awards in the pat but this is the first time for them to be nomination in a category.

Ella told PEP, "Sobrang thankful, of course, and sobrang saya ko. Kasi I'm a newbie sa music industry tapos sa isang taon pa lang na pag-release ko ng song last year, nabigyan agad ako ng pansin especially ng MYX. So I'm really thankful for MYX, for having us, for nominating us.

For his part, Julian said, "Nakakatuwa lang, sobrang props to MYX for consistently recognizing newbies and iba yung MYX talaga when it comes to music. Yung love nila, yung support nila sa mga artists. Ang laking tulong sa amin."


ABS-CBN singer actor James Reid received four nominations: Music Video of The Year for "The Life," Song of the Year for "Cool Down," Male Artist of the Year, and Artist of the Year.

His girlfriend and love team partner, Nadine Lustre, shared the nomination for Music Video of The Year for "The Life" after co-directing it with Petersen Vargas. Nadine also received a nomination for Music Video Guest Appearance of the Year for her cameo in the said music video.

KZ Tandingan and Moira dela Torre both received four nominations. Meanwhile, newbie band IV of Spades and GMA-7 artist Glaiza de Castro bagged three nominations from MYX.

Winners will be determined via a public poll that will account for 60% of the final tally. The remaining 40% will be decided by their fellow OPM artists.
