  • SHINee to Perform at MTV Award in Japan
  • [2011-05-13]
  • Star singers including Lady Gaga will hold performances for fundraising to help earthquake recovery in Japan.

    Star singing group SHINee will participate in the MTV Awards in Japan as a representative Korean singing group. MTV Korea said on May 12, “SHINee has been solely invited to the ‘MTV Video Music Aid Japan (VMAJ)’ to be held at the Makuhari Messe in Chiba Prefecture in Japan on June 25 at 6 pm.” MTV Korea continued, “SHINee attracted around 24,000 fans to their concert in Japan last December, and news reporters have shown great interest in covering their stories as their first single album in Japan entitled ‘Replay’ will be released next month.”




    MTV Japan hosts music awards with the title of “MTV Video Music Award Japan” every year, but this year’s title for the music awards, which will be co-hosted with Red Cross in Japan to assist the victims from the recent major earthquake, will be “MTV Video Music Aid Japan.” Star singing groups including foreign singers such as Lady Gaga and German band group Tokio Hotel, and Japanese star singing groups such as AK848, Exile, and Monkey Magic will participate in the award ceremony. Girls Generation, who had actively held performances in Japan last year, was nominated in the three categories of “Best Group Video,” ”Best Video of the Year,” and “Best Karaoke Song,” but they will not participate in the ceremony. The MTV awards will be broadcast live in a total of nine Asian countries including Japan, Korea, China, Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong. The winners will be decided solely based on the online and mobile voting, which will be conducted through MTV Japan’s official website (http://www.mtvjapan.com/vmaj), and the participants of the voting will automatically donate 10 yen to help in earthquake recovery.
