BlackPink, the massive Korean pop female band, won the award for best metaverse performance at the VMAs … but who were they up against? Here are all the Metaverse concerts scheduled.
Often written as BLɅϽKPIИK, the winner of the Best Metaverse Performance VMA is a South Korean women’s group. They are the Korean Spice Girls, but better. Members Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé and Lisa entered the scene in 2016 and have become the most successful Korean women’s group internationally. The female group is now known as the “largest female group in the world”.
BLɅϽKPIИK are the first Korean female group on the American Billboard charts and are the first Korean band to exceed one billion views with their single “Ddu-Du Ddu-Du”. Even if you can’t stand pop music or Korean pop (KPop), this song will captivate you and won’t let you go. BlackPink are also the first band to have five music videos that have reached one billion views on YouTube. They are also Spotify’s most popular female group.
BlackPink and the VMAs
Now they are dominating the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs). The awards are presented by the American cable channel MTV and are known as the “Super Bowl for young people”.
For Web3 enthusiasts, there is a new category for Metaverse performance.
MTV has come a long way since their first music clip, Video Killed the Radio Star On August 1, 1981. The TV station gloated that the video would kill the radio. Now, let’s look at how the Metaverse is lining up to kill MTV in a moment of full circle.
This year, BlackPink won the Metaverse concert category. BlackPink were the first female K-pop band to sing at the VMAs.
The trophy that the winners receive is an astronaut visiting the moon. This is a metal representation of one of the first video images displayed on MTV.
Here is the winning performance.
When the band accepted their space boy, they said, “We’re just very grateful to our fans, so thank you so much for this award.” They also said it was their first time at the VMAs and they were thrilled to see other artists perform.
BlackPink’s competition for the best performance in the Metaverse was incredibly hot.
They were against Ariana Grande on the Fortnight platform.
They also took on other KPop BTS artists on Minecraft.
Charlie XCX on Roblox was also in the running.
Justin Bieber on Wave was in the mix.
… And twenty-one pilots on Roblox.
BlackPink’s Metaverse concert isn’t the only success story in virtual worlds. Comrade KPop boyband BTS attracted a whopping 46 million people for a virtual event on Fortnight.
Travis Scott, the world famous hip-hop artist, also gave a concert at Fortnight which proved incredibly popular.
While the metaverse seems a long way off, if VMAs are anything to build upon, it’s still a wildly popular idea, especially with Millennials and Gen Zedder.
