The traditional awards usually presented at this show, the “Grand Prix” and “Newcomer of the Year” will be held back in respect of the victims and many charitable works by artists as a result of this past March’s Tohoku earthquake and tsunami. Previously EXILE had won the “Grand Prix” award the past 3 years.
