Carly Rae Jepsen collaborated with Momoclo?! Oh my goodness that much have been some sight! Interesting to see no AKB or Johnny's. Congratulations to Kana, Kyary, Miliyah, and Momoclo. Nice to see Acchan there too, makes up for the lack of AKB!

"Chosen by popular vote" and not a single award for AKB48? That is very strange because AKB obviously has the most wota's in Japan.

Management probably doesn't make them eligible for the award, or something along the lines of that. Johnny's groups is very famous for doing that as well with most music awards (and you can see all the JE groups are missing from this list as well)

Momoclo won best choreo? That's questionable. As much as I love them... How are these all judged?

As the article says, it's by popular vote. That said, their unorthodox choreography is part of the appeal in Japan.

This event was opened with Momoclo's Overture and perf of Saraba, the crowd and energy felt like it's one of Momoclo's concert.
