An Artist's Time To Shine
Posted 04 December 2005 - 12:38 AM
This year, BoA's definitely set to prove to us once again how much she's improved and what she's ultimately made up of: raw talent. Unbeknownst to some but all-too-familiar for us fans, BoA, a foreigner to Japan, has been invited once more to perform at its annual Kōhaku Uta Gassen. Aired by NHK, this prestigious event is attended only by J-Pop's best, by invitation. BoA being in only her fifth year as an artist, will make her fourth appearance in 2006's affair--an exceptional recognition by anyone's standards.
The Korean DaeSang (Grand Prize) award shows are also fast approaching and BoA is sure to take part, if not take it all the way at these heavily anticipated events. Of the most pivotal awards that she has received, the Seoul Gayo Dae Sang and SBS Dae Sang of 2002 were arguably the most important honors that BoA has attained. It signigified to all critics that she has what it takes to survive and potentially rise to the top of the extremely competitive Korean music industry. Fastforward three years later and we see that not only do artists from all over the world aspire to be at her level, not only do numerous individuals compare themselves to her, but she has deservedly become the girl on top. BoA has become and will continue to be the standard of success for many that wish to inspire the world through their music.
The BoAjjang staff wishes BoA all the best in the upcoming weeks. And even if she doesn't receive any awards, medals, or trophies, she will always be the best and biggest winner of all to us.
Author's/Editor's Note: The Kōhaku Uta Gassen is a contest-show held in Japan on New Year's Eve, which divides the invitees into two teams to vie for ultimate victory: The Red team which is composed of the female artists and the White team which comprises up of their male counterparts. Artists perform all throughout the evening, showcasing their most popular and successful tracks, as chosen by a selection committee. At night's end, a panel of judges along with the audience, both live and remote, vote for the team they think deserves the glory. The DaeSangs (Seoul Gayo DaeSang, SBS DaeSang, MBC DaeSang) on the other hand are Korea's equivalent to the Grammy Awards. Receiving the Best Artist recognition, decided upon by sales figures and polls, goes on top of an artist's list of accomplishments and is revered as the ultimate honor.
