Girls’ Generation Wins the Digital Daesang award for the 26th Golden Disk Awards.

The 26th Golden Disk Awards in Osaka was held in the Kyocera Dome, Osaka, Japan on January 11-12 as a two-day award event. Girls’ Generation came on the second day, wearing dark-toned dresses as they graced the red carpet.

At around 8:40 p.m., the nine girls received a Digital Bonsang award for their 2011 Korean single, “The Boys”. They expressed their thoughts after winning by saying, “Thank you to the fans who love not only one track ‘The Boys’, but the 3rd album as a whole. In the future, we will be a more hardworking Girls’ Generation.”

Fans were delighted when they received the news, and “Congrats SNSD” soon appeared on the worldwide trending topics list on Twitter. The two words managed to reached the third rank on the list in a short span of time.

Around 90 minutes after receiving their Digital Bonsang award, Girls’ Generation was called onto the stage once again to receive their Digital Daesang award. Girls’ Generation has received three Daesang awards in a row starting in 2009 with their first Digital Daesang. More were added to their ongoing list as they earn their first Disk Daesang award in 2010 and this year’s Digital Daesang award. Girls’ Generation is now officially the first girl group that has received three Daesang awards, the highest number of Daesang awards any group or artist has ever received.

On a side note, Tiffany was absent from the 25th Golden Disk Awards last year due to an injury, so the girls were thrilled to have her on stage and to be able to stand as nine while they received the most prestigious award of the night.

“Congrats SNSD” and “Digital Daesang” quickly made their ways up the worldwide Twitter trending topics list, expressing the instant excitement fans felt. Pictures from the red carpet and the event can be found in Soshified’s photo section here and here respectively.
