Following on from SBS and KBS, the last of the 3 major end year Music Shows, the MBC Music Festival, aired on New Year’s Eve, drawing a close to 2011. As SNSD were in Japan attending the Kōhaku Uta Gassen, their participation in the Music Festival was via pre-recorded performances of ‘Diamond‘ from SMTown’s 2011 Winter Album, ‘The Warmest Gift’ and ‘The Boys‘

As previously reported, the ladies of Shoujo Jidai/ Girl’s Generation were invited to perform at Japan’s prestigious New Year’s Eve music festival, the ‘Kōhaku Uta Gassen‘. The event took place last night/year :P, where Shoujo jidai performed their Japanese debut single, GENIE.
With ‘Kōhaku Uta Gassen’ literally meaning ‘Red and White Song battle‘, the format of the show obviously followed the format of a ‘Red Team VS White Team’ battle. Ladies were Red (akagumi), Gents were White (shirogumi) …. and the winner of the 62nd Kōhaku Uta Gassen was… *drumroll* THE RED TEAM! This was the first win for the Red team in 6 years… i’m sure Tiffany’s “Akagumi… Put it back on!!” helped. 🙂
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
