• J-WAVE’s TOKIO HOT 100 AWARDS: EXILE wins Best Group


    On February 24th, J-WAVE held its “McDonald’s TOKIO HOT 100 AWARDS” ceremony. The annual awards show, which determines the year’s best song and artists through listeners votes, had selected seven nominees each for five award categories. All songs and artists that placed in the top 100 in 2010 were considered for nomination. From January 9th until February 6th, a total of 18,661 votes were counted to decide this year’s winners.

    Seven hundred J-WAVE listeners and several musicians and music execs attended the event and after party at Shinagawa’s Stellar Ball concert hall. Chris Peppler, the host of McDonald’s TOKIO HOT 100 radio show, served as MC, and the rest of the J-WAVE staff as presenters. The winners came to the stage with words of thanks and performed their songs for the audience. J-WAVE’s recommended artists for 2011, Heavenstamp and NIKIIE, also gave a special performance.


    EXILE then took home the award for Best Group. The audience erupted into cheers as the award was announced and EXILE member USA took the stage. “As EXILE is undergoing changes, it’s thanks to all of you that we can continue performing. The thanks I feel toward our fans is what inspires me to put everything I have into my performance. We ask for your continued support,” he said.


    A recap of the ceremony will air on J-WAVE’s “McDonald’s TOKIO HOT 100” on Sunday, February 27th from 1:00 to 4:54 PM.
