HA NOI (VNS)— Pop stars My Tam and My Linh received nominations for World Music Awards in the Best Female Artist category alongside 60 other singers.
The two Vietnamese representatives were chosen based on record sales.
My Tam is also competing for two other titles, World's Best Live Act and World's Best Entertainer.
"It is the most noteworthy event in my career. It's all thanks to the support of my fans," she said.
Last year, My Tam was also nominated for the World's Best Female Artist title and was the first Vietnamese singer to be awarded Best Southeast Asian Act at the MTV Europe Music Awards.
This is the first time My Linh, known as one of the "Vietnamese divas", has been nominated for the World Music Awards.
There are awards for World's Best Male Artist, Best Group, Best Electronic Dance Music Artist, Best Song, Best Album and Best Video, all decided by online voting open to everyone.
