Miku’s MTV VMAJ Debut


Holographic princess Hatsune Miku’s notoriety now extends to the MTV Video Music Awards Japan, with Miku gracing the 2014 opening act with her virtual presence – along with the announcement of extra US dates to follow.

The song used for such a grand event was none other than “Ray”, the same tune created in collaboration with the similarly renowned Bump of Chicken.

The event was visible worldwide both on TV and streamed, though thanks to MTV’s energetic efforts to purge it from video sharing sites after the fact, fans will likely have to dig around to see it.

While Miku’s fame in Japan is beyond dispute, her lack of any physical limbs sadly prevents her dominating the nation’s legacy music charts, so MTV (one of the few music media outlets not completely given over to AKB marketing it would seem) provides a helpful further mainstream outlet for her advance – although admittedly MTV did not give a single award to anything Vocaloid related either.

The announcement of Miku revisiting LA and NY by way of the “Miku Expo”, which in addition to her Gaga appearances seems to indicate her foothold in the land of the liberty-choked is now well established:

    The day Miku can make her own handshaking event is the day Vocaloids rule the world, because the machines have taken over.
    And I for one welcome our new holographic overlords.

    Are we ignoring how low they had to price the tickets at the last US Miku concert so they could fill up the place?

    Guess so..

    As opposed to when they give out tickets for free to fill out the seats for a no name concert during Anime Expo?

    Yeah, if they really wanted to put asses in the chairs they would have been free too.

    Not like Americans would pay exorbitant prices for a concert. They got exorbitant bills to pay.

    Well, you know... Net Idols tend to be more cheap than those over-priced and over-confident sluts that rule the current music age.

    Yeah I don't really get why Japan looks down on Europe. There's a larger population in the EU than the US too...

    Japan looks down on Europe? What? I've played a few foreign MMORPGs, including Korean and Japanese, and have travelled there a few times, for the most part there are enough people that dislike America but don't mind England lol

    The US sold Japan guns and warships.
    The UK built them a rail network, and sold them trains.

    They liked the trains very much. They were enjoying the guns up until America told them they weren't allowed to actually use them, and took them back.

    Maeda Atsuko once hosted MTV VMA and AKB48 is nominated this year but lost to EXILE Pride'S E-Girls and MTV US is full of crap and lies nowadays since they put a lot of reality shows with talentless people.

    Yes, US reality shows sucks, a lot of talentless people on that. And on the other hand Japan give us its own talentless concepts like AKB48. Talentless people everywhere.

    Miku's appearance on Lady Gaga's concert tours may resulted in mixed reviews , her (Miku) foothold on the land of Stars & Stripes is now further cemented... even if some of Gaga's fans think of Miku as some Sailormoon look-alike...
    Whether you like Lady Gaga or not , she made a contrbution to making our Holographic Princess more known to the common masses .
    AKB48 ? I could care less about 'em... at the very least , Miku will not be harmed if some chainsaw wielding whackjob came swingin'...
