S/mileage debuted on May this year, and their three singles have entered the top 10 of oricon chart. They had their first nation-wide tour on fall, and they have gained steady fans. It's been 3 years since a Japanese artist has won this award. The four of them are walking towards their big dreams, and Wada firmly said "We'll do our best as the beautiful-legged idol group with the fresh legs in Japan".
