Yahoo OMG Awards 2012: Where the Stars Collide

When in Manila, the second annual Yahoo OMG Awards took place at the SM Mall of Asia Arena last July 6, 2012 where 13,000 avid fans turned up to be part of the star-studded show and support their favorite idols and celebrities. It was truly a grand celebration for the entertainment industry as Kapamilya, Kapuso, and Kapatid stars all gathered together for one evening.
