I was looking at the new section over at JpopAsia.com and new of the JRA (Japan Records Awards) was released.
It seems that S/mileage have won a New Artist award and are in the running for Best New Artist along with SNSD. I really hope they win it because they have worked so hard ever since joining the Egg project that this would really help boost their sales and hopefully encouage UFA to continue to promote them more than what they are doing with C-ute, Berryz and Moring Musume.
AKB48 have won Best Song with Beginner and are now just waiting to hear if they have won the grand prize. But they are up against last year's (and the year before), EXILE. Now i know nothing about EXILE or their song, I Wish For You, but i also hope that they win this arawd too.
The awards show will be on the 30th December.
