The singer was nominated five times for her global hit “Poker Face,” including nods for best video, best female video and best dance video.

In line with North America and Europe, Lady Gaga has made a strong impact in Japan with her debut studio set “The Fame” peaking at No. 6 on the Billboard Japan Album chart and remaining on the chart for 40 weeks. Follow-up deluxe album re-issue, “The Fame Monster”, also peaked at No. 6 and stayed on the chart for 17 weeks. In total Lady Gaga has sold 330,000 albums in Japan, according to Soundscan Japan.
