On the 25th of June, Girls’ Generation attended the MTV Video Music Aid Japan at Makuhari Messe convention centre, where they performed “Mr. Taxi” and “The Great Escape” on a stage shared by various other popular artists such as SHINee and Lady Gaga. The event was held with hopes of supporting and raising awareness for the Red Cross appeal in light of the recent disaster in Japan.
Today, the much anticipated results for the awards ceremony have been released and broadcasted in multiple countries in Asia such as Malaysia, Singapore and China. Out of the 15 awards, the group’s debut Japanese track “Genie” was nominated for 3 categories competing with names such as Justin Bieber, Utada Hikaru, Linkin Park, Avril Lavinge, Kato Miriya, and Ikimonogakari. The group has come through once again, displaying their popularity and winning 2 of their nominated categories, taking home the “Best Group Video” award and “Best Karaokee! Song” award.
The excitement of the event does not end there, as a special program showing backstage footage and comments from staff will be broadcast on July 23rd, and promises to be something not to be missed out on.
