      BABYMETAL! WOOO!

      They also got Best Worldwide Act along with like 6 others? IDGI.

      • There really isn’t a Best Worldwide Act anymore.

      Suiyoubi no Campanella deserved to win imo…
      BABYMETAL schtick is getting old

        BABYMETAL are better in every single way and they won because they got more votes.

          “BABYMETAL are better in every single way” You need JESUS

          It would never cross my mind to compare BABYMETAL music to Suiyoubi no Campanella’s though. It’s like.. 2 fricking different galaxies.

          Also vote doesn’t equal musical quality.

            I wouldn’t either but you acted like all they have is the “crazy Japan” factor, which is patently false. They have a super high quality in all their aspects from songwriting to live performances.

            And the reason i brought up votes is because you complained about what the media was focusing on which made it seem you thought MTV picked them as the winners.

            Regarding your edit: There are talented metal bands from Japan but none that quite do it like BABYMETAL, stuff like the range of material, breadth of influences, the way they do the vocals and the way they structure their live shows and so on is quite unique.

            And i never denied that the shock value of the “‘cute girls singing heavy metal’ gimmick ” is part of their initial appeal but their unique qualities and high standard are why they are still thriving.

              ” the way they do the vocals and the way they structure their live shows and so on is quite unique.” But this is YOUR interpretation though
              Some people will actually think that a bunch of metal bands are far more interesting than BABYMETAL…

              • Oxox

                I never said they(or anyone) have to enjoy it or find it interesting, i am just pointing out that the way BABYMETAL does things is quite UNIQUE and undoubtedly part of their continued success.
