    They (organisers) should stop pretending that this is Japanese. I'm not saying that because of the nominations (said to not care about country of origin, clearly has no interest in local music) but because fans from all over the world could vote. Not saying anything against k-pop, but if it was just Japanese people voting, they wouldn't have done this spectacularly.

    It's honestly a pretty good mix. No doubt helped by the fact that minor categories like hip hop and r&b could go to Japanese artists. But it seems like the major categories got a lot of international hallyu push... though it could just be a factor of Japanese MTV fan demographics. I mean, SNSD is undoubtedly popular in Japan- but I also kinda feel like if those are the nominees then of course so and so is gonna win no problem. 2PM's win seems most questionable, but I haven't seen the video in question. I didn't think they were popular enough to even beat several other Korean groups honestly, let alone everyone everywhere.
