The photo on the homepage was with Donika Sterling, 15-year old American girl suffering from incurable muscle contraction disease visiting SM Entertainment to meet with K-Pop stars in Korea.

Donika Sterling made her way to the media as she expressed her dream of visiting Korea as she listened to K-Pop fighting against her illness. A Canadian businessman hearing her situation gladly decided to support Donkia's visit to Korea.

Grammy Music Awards homepage included an explanation of the photo stating, "It's a dream come true for 15-year-old Donika Sterling, who meets members of Korean pop band SHINee on June 20 in Seoul, South Korea."

It seems K-Pop is truly expanding worldwide as Grammy Awards has already featured Big Bang and Wonder Girls this year. Especially Big Bang made their second appearance this month while Wonder Girls' made their first appearance and now SHINee becoming the third K-Pop group.
