December 12 is almost here… which means we’re just days away from 2NE1‘s first live performance in the US!
YG’s powerhouse girl group was recently voted MTV Iggy’s Best New Band in the World by fans from all over the world, who contributed to the total 4.25 MILLION votes during six frenzied weeks of voting.
To honor the girls, MTV Iggy is throwing their biggest live event yet: A two-hour multi-platform concert, to take place on December 12 from 4-6PM in Times Square, NYC (from Best Buy Theater and MTV Times Square Studio to Times Square itself)!
Congratulations to all who have been selected as audience members — and confirmations are still being sent out, so don’t lose hope just yet!
Hosted by MTV VJs Suchin Pak and Sway, MTV Iggy’s Best New Band concert will be simulcast on the MTV’s giant HD screen in Times Square and feature live backstage MTV Studio interviews, highlight reels, roving reporters, and interactions with fans in Times Square and online. (Blackjack Times Square takeover, anyone?)
For those of you who can’t make the trip out to New York to see the girls, we’ve got some reassuring news for you:
The entire concert will be streamed live on mtviggy.com, so you won’t have to miss out on any of the excitement! You’ll also be able to participate in a worldwide live chat (in the language of your choice, thanks to Ortsbo translation). Who knows, maybe 2NE1 will answer the question you tweet at them with the hashtag #bestnewband!
