Biggest girl band in the world wins "Music video of the year" at Youtube awards. Racists hit back


The video-sharing website YouTube held its first wards show today, called the YouTube Music Awards. Meant to honor and celebrate the hottest and most viral music videos from all over the world on Youtube, the website awarded artists, videos, and YouTube stars through six categories: Breakthrough of the Year, Response of the Year, Innovation of the Year, YouTube Phenomenon, Video of the Year, and Artist of the Year.

K-Pop stars were on the list of nominees; Girls’ Generation‘s “I Got a Boy” music video was up for the Video of the Year, and PSY was in several categories. His “Gangnam Style” was a nominee for YouTube Phenomenon, “Gentleman” was up for the Video of the Year, and PSY himself was up for the Artist of the Year.

Tiffany's acceptance speech:

Girls’ Generation took home the award for Video of the Year, going against Demi Lovato, Epic Rap Battles of History, Justin Biever, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miley Cyrus, One Direction, PSY, and Selena Gomez. Girls’ Generation’s Tiffany was present at the live awards show in New York to receive the award, and the idol star couldn’t hide her happiness as she expressed her love for the fans, YouTube, and her members (who couldn’t be there with her).PSY did not take any awards home this year, unfortunately.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis took home Breakthrough of the year, Lindsey Stirling and Pentatonix‘s response to “Radioactive” took home Response of the Year, De Storm‘s “See Me Standing” grabbed the Innovation of the Year award, “I Knew You Were Trouble” nabbed the YouTube Phenomenon award, and Eminem took home Artist of the Year.

Congratulations to Girls’ Generation and all the other winners!
