K-pop sensation, 2ne1, is the winner of MTV Iggy's inaugural Best New Band in the World search – a fan voted and social media-driven search that captured four million votes from 169 countries. Breakthrough artists including La Vida Boheme, Atif Aslam, Skrillex and Yuna also get kudos for making it into the Top 5 but in the end, 2NE1 prevailed. They are the Best New Band in the World. That's a big, bold statement, but the Korean pop band can handle the pressure of such an accolade!
2NE1 is made up of the four fiercest ladies in K-pop—CL, Park Bom, Dara, and Minzy. From their eye-catching fashion to their unparalleled stage presence, 2NE1 represents the epitome of the innocent yet edgy Korean pop music movement that is taking the world by storm. Check out the video for their hit single "I Am the Best" by going here.
You can enjoy all the bands from the Best New Band in the World artist page, including 2NE1 and the rest of the Top 5 acts, by going here where you can download video + audio so you can discuss and debate amongst yourselves. Be nice, though. I am not going to referee any verbal banter or battles..
Did you check 2NE1? Did you check out the other acts? Did 2NE1 deserve to win?
