Acceptance Speeches for ARTIST of the Year– translation via Dana:
Taeyang said this may be the last MAMA performance for Bigbang for a long time T_____T
Taeyang: Thank u so much for this big award today Like what TOP hyung said, we r reaching our 10th anniversary. We’ve sang so many songs and been through so much. Thank you to our fans for supporting and loving us under any circumstances. I think we were able to receive this award thanks to the staffs who work hard behind the scenes and stay up more nights than us. We will work harder to become artists who suit the title of this award. Thank you so much again.
GD: Receiving awards always makes me more nervous than performing. Thank you so much. The 5 of us were lucky to have ur love and support to produce good music in a good environment, the biggest happiness &prize for artists. As the yrs go, we do feel a bit more burdened, but we will continue on with our music career with a happy heart.
When we were young, we dreamed of becoming singers listening to the music of senior artists and watching their stages, and I still have vivid memories about it. The five of us will work hard, until time allows, to become artists who can remain and linger in the hearts and the memories of those who are living in this generation with us.
I love you, VIPs. We do not think that we made it ourselves, but we think that we are where we are today thanks to all our staffs & fans. We will continue to work harder. I love you MAMA, and to all the artists, you’ve worked hard, good job!
Taeyang grabbed the microphone at the end again:

Taeyang: Lastly, I want to say.. I think it will take a long time for us BIGBANG, all 5 of us, to be here at MAMA again. We performed what we wanted to perform through MAMA for so many times, and we thank MAMA for always giving us amazing awards. It’s been an honor, thank you so much. One thing a bit sad is that there are not many artists here now when we’re receiving award. We BIGBANG will see you again w/ more amazing stage and music. Thank you.
