      Good nominees. ONE OK ROCK, 3JSB, SEKAI NO OWARI, and Alexandros>>>>>

      I’d vote for Alexandros for the wildcard, but I’m stumped on the main nominees. Maybe ONE OK ROCK…

      I got the feeling OOR might win this…

      • Gabrielle Willis

        Hey, they’re good, so why not? *shrugs

    • nothingsover

      OOR and Alexandros for sure.

    • No9

      Gesu no Kiwami Otome, Babymetal and One Ok Rock! (In that order)

      I love OOR but I’m rooting for Crossfaith. They have been putting in work overseas especially in Europe so I really think they deserve it. I see tons of people in their Tumblr tag who don’t care about Japanese pop culture but saw the band as an opening act or at a festival and became hardcore fans.
