Sunday we were watching the MTV European Music Awards in Amsterdam and we got all excited when we saw that Tokio Hotel was nominated for 'Biggest Fans', but because their last record and gigs already happened a few years ago, we didn't have very high hopes for them to win the award this time. After all, they faced competition from hugely popular acts such as 30 Seconds To Mars, Justin Bieber, One Direction and Lady Gaga! We know since the year that the band took part in our second 'Fashion against AIDS' campaign (2009) with their 'Rock Hard F**K Safe' T-shirts that Tokio Hotel has very loyal fans, but would they make it this time? In one word: YES. As Bill Kaulitz says in the 'Thank you' video that the band put on Facebook just after the win (he was there with his brother Tom; no idea where George and Gustav were, but I guess the twins are back in Los Angeles): "We just have the best fans in the world!" If the fans are so fierce now, expect them to be at least doubly so after the new record comes out later this year. We can't wait!
