Boyband EXO stood out as the champions of the evening, taking home FOUR awards including Album of the Year for "Overdose" and the Best Male Group".

Referring to a year which saw members Kris and Luhan quit the group, member Tao, 21, said, "2014 was a very hard year for EXO. Thank you to everyone that helped EXO. EXO will continue working hard, so please look forward to it."

Rookie boy band Winner won Best New Artist, beating out competition from rivals Got7 and vocalists Eddy Kim and Park Bo Ram.
