“We just heard that we won MTV’s Musical March Madness again,” Tom and Bill Kaulitz said in a video message sent to MTV. “Basically you guys won again. Thank you so much for voting. That’s crazy. We are super happy. We just came back from our tour in Europe — it was amazing. We already miss the stage so we got to hit the road pretty soon again and continue with part two. We can’t wait. Thank you so much for voting, thanks for this award, you guys are amazing you are the best fans in the world. Thank you so so much and we will see you guys on tour.”
The final round saw over 20 million votes, with Jared Leto and the guys giving it a good run, but the Tokio Hotel fans proved to be too much, taking 51% of the votes.
So what did the road to the championship look like for Tokio Hotel? In the first round, the “Run, Run, Run” group cruised past “Uptown Funk’s” Mark Ronson, which then had them facing off against 2013 MMM champion Ed Sheeran. We thought this would be a heated match-up but the loyal Aliens easily took Ed down getting 84% of the votes in round two. The guys then easily made it past Imagine Dragons before crushing Walk The Moon in the Final Four.
Tokio Hotel knows what it feels like to be an MMM champ since they took home the the title back in 2012 when they defeated Green Day.
It’s been a big week for the German band, who just released their brand-new music video for “Feel It All,” off their Kings Of Suburbia album, which takes a look at the lifestyles of misguided youth.
