[Updated]Performances from Music Station Ultra Fes 2015

24 Sep

Update: Most 48 videos gone but i’ve found alternative sources. Check them out quickly if you haven’t..

This is a special episode to celebrate Music Station’s 30th anniversary. Show was 10hours long and featured many major acts including X Japan, Ayumi Hamasaki, EXILE, 48Group, Johnny’s Family etc.


48/46 Group

Nogizaka46 – Nandome no Aozora ka
Ikuta Erika wows with her piano solo and opera voice. What a talent wasted as an idol!

HKT48 – Melon Juice
SKE48 – Pareo wa Emerald
NMB48 – Nagiichi

AKB48 – Ponytail to Shushu/ Everyday, Kachuusha / Koisuru Fortune Cookie (Kimutaku center)
The biggest winner from this performance is SMAP’s Kimutaku, who was forced into the KFC performance by Sashihara. Despite the annoyance on his face, he performed the full choreography perfectly, impressing netizens with his professionalism.In the end Kimutaku said “Music Station does things like this?”

Other members who attracted most attention tonight…

Many comments from GirlsChannel on Mayuyu’s growing beauty and how she’s shaken off the idol look.


Within 48 fandom, many gushed over cute Paruru’s healthy return to senbatsu. I have to say Paruru’s signature twintails are really cute! Many are calling Payuyu the strongest combi in AKB48.


Johnny’s Family

Johnny’s performances are quite fun this time around as we have live video footage of Arashi from their Miyagi concert, and medleys where the idols are grouped according to their generation. It is quite interesting to see for example, Nishikido Ryo standing next to NEWS, and KAT-TUN performing Real Face with just 4 members. *Heart pinch*

    ” Ikuta Erika wows with her piano solo and opera voice. What a talent wasted as an idol! ” True, but she’d not be as famous as she is right know if it wasn’t for Nogi. As for the SMAP’s guy who danced KCF I bet it was all staged he knew the steps too well to be just an improvisation, thought like u said he got a lot of attention from the netizens even more than AKB itself

      I’m sure fame is good for her but i mean she has skills no one else have so she’d be better off being a pro pianist or stage actress where the skills can be put to good use. If the intentions is to be stage acting then i guess sticking to nogi has its uses.

      Erm the SMAP guys all know KFC because they collaborate with different artistes on SMAPXSMAP and AKB48 is one of them. They know the Ponytail and Kachuusha dance too. I believe it wasn’t staged because the great KimuTaku is too cool for gimmicks(that look on his face is real). The SMAP guy in charge of variety is Shingo but Sasshi went to pick the most untouchable one. That is why all netizens attention was on him.

      Well to be fair if any other SMAP guy was picked the attention would still be on them cos they’re top level idols.

        I get your point but sometimes it is not enough with just being good, but to be able to be recognized even if it’s in an idol group. I am sure there are other girls better than her, but cos she is in a popular group she has more opportunities like being able to perform at Music station. Even u would not know about her if it wasn’t for Nogi.

        ” that look on his face is real ” well he is an actor and the most popular among them, so the best pick. I’d not say it was a gimmick, but just make people talk about AKB and SMAP and clearly worked.

        LOL. All SMAP members knew KFC choreograph very well because it was the song that they danced on SMAPxSMAP Sport Festival this year with AKB48, Kisumai and other talento. I believe it isn’t staged at all.

      Maybe, but I think it would be great to integrate her piano and voice into more of the N46 music.

    Went right for the HKT48 vid, but it was just “Melon Juice” again.

    Re: Mayu Wananabe it does look like she is taking beauty pills!

    whats with that Ojii-san-ikemen-boys generation lol ..

    – Ojiisan seems have more fun rather than the others !!

    – ikemen is being ikemen..

    – Boys.. my love only goes to hey!sey!jump! u,u

    Arashi and SMAP were really in different level u,u.. SMAP got the highest rating, while Arashi LIVE concert was very amazing~

    Note : still wonder why they choose exile as the closing performance..

    • allthingsjpop September 25, 2015 at 6:39 am #

      I was also quite surprised that LDH got the last spot when very obviously X Japan or SMAP should be the closing acts. Their influence over the TV stations is so strong! (despite the century flop in HEAT)

    Add for 48/46 group :

    Watanabe mayu got the highest raport in here u,u.. she got praised a lot in twitter, and mostly were comin from non-akb fans.

    Magic Trick again -,- … its a fail!! really didnt need that !!.. but again, sashi save us with bringin kimutaku~ u,u

    Nogi are bunch of model.. i cant even decide who’s the most beautiful among them

    NMB+HKT not impressed.

    SKE.. furuhata nao, she stole my attention~

    • allthingsjpop September 25, 2015 at 6:35 am #

      I wanted to say too..stop it with the magic tricks. Why is AKB so gimmicky nowadays? Golden Bomber are already the copyright holders when it comes to gimmicks.
