  • Yamashita Tomohisa‘s new song “Hello” from upcoming album
  • Japanese version of “Love is an open door” from movie Frozen 

wakamono tachi
Moriyama Naotaro – Wakamono tachi
I’m watching this drama so i loved it when this song was performed. And the bonus in seeing Eita/Tsumabuki singing along shoulder to shoulder!!!*Kyaa*


Yamashita Tomohisa x Hata Motohiro – Hello
I liked the CD version but the live is quite boring.Well, credits to Yamapi for trying to keep the mood high though.

Japanese version of “Love is an open door” in a stage play setting. It was definitely one of the more well-received performances of the night, judging from the cheers.


SMAP x Suga Shikao x Yamapi x Kis-My-Ft2 – Yoru Sora no Mukou
One nostalgic SMAP song and nice solo from Kimura and his guitar

Kis-My-Ft2 – Another Future

Kis-My-Ft2 x T.M. Revolution – High Pressure


Yuzu x Sandaime J Soul Brothers – Natsu iro


Yuzu x Sandaime J Soul Brothers – Hanabi


Nishino Kana – Watashi tachi


Momoiro Clover Z/ Ebichu/ Team Shachihoko – Nana iro no Stardust
I don’t follow these idols but this song is quite nice and their vocals seem to be better than the 48groups?!


AKB48 – Heavy Rotation (Kawaei Rina center)
Kawaei makes a great center for this song! That’s the most Yuko-like solo dance i’ve ever seen, and that solo line at the end was pitch perfect! (even better than Yuko hehe)


AKB48 x WaT x Naoto Inti Raymi – The world is ours!
I chose to post this song cos of WaT. How long have they been missing from the music industry?! Teppei looks as cute as ever…the 48girls are so lucky!


AKB48 – Kokoro no Placard
To be honest this perf is horrible.I wouldn’t blame it that much on the live singing. It was more of the band and that weak trumpet solo in the middle which totally destroyed the whole song. 


NMB48 – Nagiichi


SKE48 – Bukiyou Taiyou
Rather emotionless singing for such a beautiful song..

    There are too many people in AKB, and is really hard to get a good harmony without a really good vocal trainer ( as far as I know AKB has any ) I was in a choir and I know how difficult is to get just two people have a good harmony and be pleasant for the ears ( too many voices at the same time can be unpleasant) . I can’t imagine a bunch of girls jumping without any training can sing correctly.

    Anyway management has really never care for that, and I don’t think that is gonna change. The girls who can sing quite well in AKB is just because they have good voice, or they have looking for a vocal trainer themselves.
