►►Big Bang & SNSD perform and win @ 52nd Japan Records Awards
Japan Record Awards is a major music awards show held annually for outstanding achievements. It is presented by the Japan Composer’s Association. This year will mark the 52nd awards show.
Big Bang and Girls’ Generation both made it on the list of winners of awards alongside Japanese artists. Along with ICONIQ, they are the only Korean artists that have made it onto the list.
* “I Wish For You” – EXILE
* “Aitai Riyuu” – AAA
* “Arigatou” – Ikimono Gakari
* “Tell Me Goodbye” – BIG BANG
* “Toilet no Kamisama” – Kana Uemura
* “Nijiiro no Bayon” – Kiyoshi Hikawa
* “New World” – w-inds.
* “Beginner” – AKB48
* “Matsushima Kikou” – Kaori Mizumori
* “Ready to be a lady” – GIRL NEXT DOOR
* Madoka Kikuchi
Note: The position of the artists are not ranked. In other words, the order does not matter as they have all won the same award.
Big Bang was chosen alongside 9 other artists for “Best Song Award” for their single, “Tell Me Goodbye”. Girls’ Generation was chosen as 1 of the 4 recipients for “Newcomer’s Award”.
The highest award for the music show is the “Japan Record Award” and it will be chosen from 1 of the 10 winners of the “Best Song Award”. “Best Newcomer’s Award” has also yet to be chosen and it will be chosen from 1 of the 4 “New Artist’s Award” recipients. At last year’s Japan Record Awards (51st), Big Bang won the “Best Newcomer’s Award” and the year before that at the 50th Japan Record Awards, their sunbae DBSK was a recipient of “Best Song Award” for their single, “Why Did I Fall in Love with You?”.
Just to clarify, both Big Bang and Girl’s Generation have actually won their respective awards, not just nominated. There is just the possibility that they may each win an additional award if selected for the above mentioned awards that have yet to be decided.
