The 4hour show last night featured some nostalgic songs which brings us back to the days of classic Jpop. This is just Part 1 of the show, and Part 2 airs 2 weeks later on 16th December 2015.
Boa & Tomomi Kahala – Meri Kuri
It’s been quite awhile since Boa appeared on Japanese TV. In terms of vocals, no one is better than Boa! Some netizens thought Tomomi Kahala’s singing was better but i think her vocal style is too old school.
Motohiro Hata x AI – Story
EXILE Vocalists – Last Christmas
Yamamoto Sayaka x Leo Ieiri – Kimi ga kureta natsu
Nakayama Miho – Sekai chuu no dare yori kitto
Ayumi Hamasaki – Seasons
Nogizaka46 – Ima, hanashitai dare ka ga iru
AKB48 – 365nichi no kami hikouki/Kuchibiru ni Be My Baby
I’m glad AKB48 is ending the year promoting 2 great songs. I didn’t like Kuchibiru as much as 365nichi earlier on. However, the cute choreography,costumes and perhaps the members’ enthusiasm for this song is making it shine. Takamina looks cute now with her slanted pigtails. Jurina looks gaunt in Love Crescendo but in this song she’s just 18 like she should be.
AKB48 x Shinji Tanimura- Rudolph the red nosed reindeer
SMAP – Yuki ga Futte kita/Otherside
Kis-my-ft2 – Everybody Go/Saigo wa Yappari Kimi
It might be the stage setting or their glittering suits, but i think they look especially cool today on skates.
TOKIO – Tokyo Drive
Hey!Say!JUMP – Christmas Song
Hey!Say!JUMP – Ultra Music Power/Kimi Attraction
Arashi – Wish/GUTS!/Ai wo Sakebe
I’ve never seen collaborations of Arashi with girl groups so this is a first! Momoiro Clover Z did a great job dancing for Arashi.
