Wasamin has been nominated for Japan Record Awards' newcomer of the year!!
(if you are not familiar with Japan Record Awards, it was the BIG award show that AKB48 won the the top prize "Music of Excellence" with Flying Get last year (see the Kin Sma SP)! )
wait that's a wrong translation. the event that is in the article is the 45th Wired Japan Grand Prix (or 45th Cable Radio Awards to some translators). the Japan Record Awards that you mentioned last year is the 53rd JRA, so this year it should be the 54th JRA and will be shown in the future on December 2012.
anyway Wasamin already won two awards from Wired Japan tonight: Best New Comer and Longest Request Award for Mujin Eki
here is the video where she sang Mujin Eki after receiving the medals (worn on her neck)
Ah, I can't wait for the results this year! I think she has a good chance of winning, since. Omedetou Wasamin!
What does is mean about the "long request award"?
hi. it refers to the large amount of replay requests over radio stations in Japan. Mujin Eki is a consistent, highly-requested enka song.
