[News] Arashi wins “Artist of the Year” at the Gold Disc Award

Japanese boy group Arashi became the biggest winners in the 25th Japan Gold Disc  Award held last night in Tokyo. They won a total of 6 awards including Artist of the Year which they won second year in a row and Album of the Year for Boku no Miteiru Fuukei.

Although they failed to get the Single of the Year award, the group managed to secure 2 spots for the Best Single category (for Troublemaker and Monster) alongside girl group AKB48. They also won Best Music Video for ARASHI Anniversary Tour 5×10.

I was able to watch NHK News last night while I was channel surfing and according to the news both Arashi and AKB48 were the reasons why Japan’s music industry is alive. Congratulations guys!
