On Friday (Oct. 25) in Las Vegas a Lady Gaga impersonator was mistaken at a charity event for the real thing.

When attendees of a national conference for Women of Global Change which held at The Strat Hotel and Casino saw the pop superstar stroll onto the stage in a matching wide-brim hat and pink pantsuit, they were shocked. Then she sat at a grand piano and performed some of her biggest hits, including “Million Reasons.” and “You and I”

But they were actually watching a Lady Gaga impersonator Tierney Allen who performs regularly in Legends in Concert, a tribute review at The Tropicana which also features Pat Benatar and Freddie Mercury lookalike/soundalikes.

Allen says to The Hollywood Reporter that she had no intention of misleading the audience to think she was really Gaga. Allen says that what happened is she was booked to perform for Women of Global Change at a private event. They always tell the guests to make sure the clients know she is not the real thing.

At the end of her performance, the confusion began when Aurea McGarry the event emcee, told the crowd that Allen was in fact the real thing and was not an impersonator.

Allen recalls that she thought that’s not good. She immediately started sweating. She must have looked like a deer in the headlights.

While visiting the Park MGM Allen was once swarmed by fans before in full Gaga regalia. The “Poker Face” singer was performing there  and she has been mistaken for the artist. She decided to just “go with it” til she could get off the stage.

Allen says she thought McGarry wanted to give the audience a thrill and got swept up in the moment though she assumed the emcee knew that she was a fake very well.

As soon as all nominations have been announced, the audience knows that Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande will be the focus at the MTV Video Music Awards Ceremony 2019 with 10 nominations for each female artist. This season promises to be extremely dramatic with nominations for stunned names.

Phenomenon Billie Eilish is also surprising to be nominated to 9 categories. Billie Eilish has an excellent debut album that is popular with both audiences and professionals.

Billie Eilish and Lil Nas will face in the “Best New Artist” nomination. This will be a tough decision for judges and audience. Both are very young artists but their talents have truly conquered audiences worldwide.

This year is also the first year the awards ceremony was held to introduce the public to the “Best Kpop” category – honoring the best Kpop product of the year with the participation of Kpop celebrities: BTS, BLACKPINK , EXO, NCT 127, Monsta X, … Of which, BTS also brought four nominations.

K-Pop is a huge music business with global revenues worth over $ 30 million in 2009, and this number doubled in 2010, according to a South Korean website. Even so, entertainment industry leaders are also very greedy with plans to bring Korean stars to Japan, the US and Europe.

Kim Young-min, CEO of pop management company SM Entertainment (the unit that created two stars BoA and Super Junior) in Seoul, said he said Asia is K-pop‘s biggest market, even exceed American. Girls Generation and Kara are said to be two major groups that contribute greatly to promoting K-pop in Japan.

In Japan – a country that is proud to produce and export its magical pop culture, the Korean entertainment industry is slowly taking over the country’s music and film market. Not only Korean movies appear regularly on TV, but in later times K-Pop groups like Girls Generation and KARA also broke record sales while appearing flooded on peak Japanese television.

The Korean entertainment industry, especially the pop music scene, spreads to many Asian countries but is particularly booming in the land of the rising sun because Koreans know how to exploit what the Japanese music industry avoids far away for years. According to the latest data from the Korean government, the country has exported drama and music worth $ 117 to Japan since 2010.

Therefore, Japan is considered the largest export market for Korean pop culture, with nearly 40% market share. Since Korean dramas were first broadcast in Japan in the early 2000s, feature films and then K-pop have become a trend of artistic enjoyment among young people in the land of the rising sun. Similarly, Japanese pop culture (called J-pop) also began to take off in Korea after an official ban was removed in South Korea in 1998. Korean cultural flows flow into Japan. It is also controversial in this country, and in 2011 many people took to the streets outside the headquarters of the Fuji TV Network in Tokyo to oppose the broadcast of so many Korean movies.

From June 2016, Forbes magazine published an article by author Melissa Daniel about this trend. In particular, Melissa not only predicted livestream concert will become an inevitable trend of the music industry but also affirmed: “If artists and brands know how to use livestream form effectively, they have It is easy to reach a huge public and customer base “.

According to Chris Watkins, technical expert at Audiotree TV, today the public is always open-minded and ready to seriously watch livestream music if it is a well-produced program with good sound quality, allowing them to interact directly with artists or at least other audiences.

“In the past 10 years, music on traditional television has lost its attraction. Along with the dizzying development of social networks, music has also gradually become a kind of community experience.

Now, thanks to broadband Internet, livestream concerts easily turn viewers from passive into active, can comfortably communicate with each other right on the show, even their opinions can reach the ears. manufacturer or artist to make timely adjustments. These things make them feel more comfortable and excited, “said Chris Watkins.

So, it is not too difficult to understand now, regardless of the large number of music festivals such as small music shows from individual studios, all the livestreams are all around the world.
