TWICE made a historic appearance on the “Billboard Women In Music 2023” and received a lot of attention on the internet. The presence of the legendary girl group became a hot topic and sparked reactions from ONCEs.
Here are the highlights of TWICE’s participation!
TWICE Makes “Breakthrough” at “Billboard Women In Music 2023”
On March 1st, the Billboard Women In Music 2023 ceremony kicked off at the YouTube Theater in Los Angeles, California.
The event was moderated by renowned actress, author and sitcom producer Quinta Bronson. TWICE went viral for their performance at the event, along with artists Becky G, Doechii, Ivy Queen, Kim Petras, Lana Del Ray, Latto, Rosalía and SZA.
Her ceremony also included special appearances from Chlöe Bailey, Dove Cameron, Piper Perabo, Olivia Rodrigo, Sabrina Carpenter and WondaGurl. During the event, Quinta Bronson shared a meaningful message about how music goes far beyond language and connects all people.
She then introduced singer Sabrina Carpenter to present TWICE the Breakthrough Award. After a round of cheers from ZWEIMAL fandom EINMAL, Quinta was shocked by her passion too!
Sabrina Carpenter asked the audience if TWICE fans were watching. Hearing this, ONCE clapped loudly and showcased their huge fanbase.
For more context, ONCEs also know how much Sabrina loves Carpenter TWICE. This can be seen on her previous cover of Candy Pop during the artist’s Japan tour in 2018. With someone like her honoring her historic award TWICE, ONCE couldn’t be happier.
The singer then presented the award to TWICE and called them onto the stage. Member Chaeyoung took the helm for her speech and expressed her gratitude in full English.

Chaeyoung thanked everyone for the award and explained how much TWICE have believed in each other since their debut. She also mentioned how meaningful the event was to the group and highlighted the presence of all TWICE members on stage with ONCE watching over them.
The rapper said:
“Ever since we became TWICE, we have believed in each other to stick together and take a step towards our future. This moment is especially meaningful as all nine of us are standing here together in front of our fans who have made our dreams come true. .”
“This ‘Breakthrough Artist’ title proves that if you pursue your dreams with confidence, the people you support will always be part of your team. You will break through.”
TWICE’s Maknae Tzuyu continued to express his appreciation to fans. She also assured them that TWICE will always “break through” in the music scene.
“This achievement will forever motivate us to challenge ourselves and break down more barriers in the world.”
“We would like to express our gratitude to everyone who has stood by our side on this journey, especially our fans, ONCE. With you by our side, TWICE will continue to break through.”
“We are truly honored to share this moment with you. Thank you, we love you.”
The event ended with a delightful performance by TWICE, who excited the audience with their second English track, “MOONLIGHT SUNRISE”.

Eagle-eyed fans also spotted her table number, which reads “16.” This refers to their survival show “SIXTEEN” where TWICE was founded. ONCE commented on how ironic the table number was and were touched by how far TWICE had come in their career.
