German teen band Tokio Hotel won the Best New Artist category for their video “Ready, Set, Go!” at the MTV Music Video Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

“This evening we'd like to thank all of our fans and the whole world,” lead singer Bill Kaulitz said.

Tokio Hotel released their first album “Schrei” (Scream) in May 2006 and sold some 600,000 copies in six days in Germany. It also quickly became a major success in France, Austria and Switzerland.

The band's first US single was released in late 2007. The band began touring the country in August after 18-year-old singer Bill Kaulitz recovered from surgery to his vocal chords in late March.
