Four million of you voted, representing 168 countries around the world. Little wonder that 2NE1 is arguably the biggest group in K-pop right now, and we are proud to secure their status in the American cultural lexicon.
Over the past six weeks, America voted for all of you in massive numbers. It’s been our pleasure to introduce you to new audiences, and now we can say with confidence — America is ready.
coupled with 2NE1′s deep love of their fans, that got them where they are today. MTV Iggy welcomes you to the annals of US pop history, ladies of 2NE1. You’ve earned it.
They showed their "love" for their fans by playing 3 songs
The 2NE1 facebook page was encouraging spam-voting. People were giving advice on how to trick the system, such as screwing with settings on your computer to get more time to vote extra (different regions had different voting schedules).It'd be cool if they actually won fairly, but once again, like Rain being Most Influential Person, it's just a joke. It doesn't make Korea look better; it makes Korea look worse.
Who is Rain?

They showed their "love" for their fans by playing 3 songs and then not playing 1 more song when everyone chanted "encore." Which to me is Live Music 101. You always play an extra song for your fans at the end of the concert when they chant encore.
