    Suiyoubi no Campanella's "SUPERMAN" was robbed of a nomination for best album.

    Wow! I'm so proud of UNIONE for being nominated for Best New Artist. They truly do deserve it. I'm sure the other groups/artists are great too - since of course, they have to be great enough to make it onto the list. And although I love H!P, I'm not too huge a fan of Tsubaki Factory.

    Everyone should check out UNIONE when they get the chance. They're really great vocalists (as well as visuals).
