Girls’ Generation are no strangers to the awards as they have received recognition from the Gold Disc Awards since two years ago. In 2011, the year following their debut in Japan, the girls were awarded the ‘New Artists of The Year Award‘ and the ‘Best 5 New Artists Award‘ in the 25th Gold Disc Award. Meanwhile, in 2012, Girls’ Generation were awarded the ‘Album of the Year Award (Asia)’ as well as ‘Best 3 Albums Award (Asia)’ for their first Japanese album ‘Girls’ Generation’.
