Billboard Japan Music Awards nominees

The nominees for the Billboard Music Japan awards were announced. And of course idol groups were no strangers to the list. In total 11 idol groups were selected (Well actually more. But I only count the groups I actually care about. XD) Of course a majority of them are Johnny’s. But the 11 are as follows: Arashi, AKB48, NYC, KAT-TUN, Kanjani8, SMAP, Team Dragon from AKB48, NEWS, Hey!Say!JUMP, Yamashita Tomohisa, and LANDS.

But don’t hold your breath for the results anytime soon. The awards don’t even take place until February 6, 2011.
