Update: The Result is out and AKB48’s Flying Get Won the Grand Prize! Congratulations to the girls of AKB48 and Akimoto Sensei! Here’s a video,
The annual Japanese Records Awards have released their list of winners for most of the awards, other than the 2 most prestigious awards, Japan Record Award and the Best New Artist Award.
The awards show will be broadcasted on TBS on the 30th of December 2011.
Naturally I feel happy that AKB48’s Flying Get got nominated for the top prize, but it’s not really the best song in the list thou… However if you count the sales, it will naturally win hands down…
Else, I think Nishino Kana and Funky Monkey Babys stands a big chance.
Also congrats to Fairies for being winning the new artist awards, hopes they win the best new artist award thou, they are really good and really new(debuted in August) too~ See for yourself,
And if you are wondering why there is no Johnny’s group in the award… Well they chose to not take part.
