Johnny’s Family




A full blown Johnny’s artistes collaboration to celebrate Kondo Masahiro’s 35th year of debut.
This is practically a miracle cause Johnny’s artistes are split into 2 factions and they have never collaborated in this manner. The inclusion of SMAP really means alot for the fans as well as for the agency. Erm wait, where’s Yamapi?

AKB48 – River/Flying Get/ Kokoro no Placard
This week, 5 members cosplay as princes while the rest dress up as princesses! Watanabe Mayu says she likes Takarazuka troupe so she referenced them in this cosplay. Sashihara was asked which “prince” was her type. She said anyone was fine except for Sakura because she remains very feminine. The girls then performed “River”, “Flying Get” and “Kokoro no Placard”.

 


Arashi – My Girl (Hawaiian version)

Arashi – One Love/A.RA.SHI

This week is Arashi’s 15th debut anniversary and since the guys are in Hawaii for their concert, a special live was streamed from Hawaii. For their first song, the guys pre-recorded an acoustic version of “My Girl” with the sunset beach as their backdrop. For the 2nd song, the guys delivered a live performance of “One Love/A.RA.SHI” from a church setting. Personally, i really liked “My Girl”.

 


Sexy Zone – Bad Boys/Otoko never give up/
I saw that guy in black and was like “Didn’t i see him in GTO 2?” So i watched their whole performance…felt some shudders with that fan service segment in the middle but this is overall a group with solid singing and entertainment abilities.

 


Sekai no Owari – Dragon Night

In the performance of KNP, Mayuyu holds up a signboard asking Nakai(MC) if he’d sing a duet with her, which he replied with a no. The MCs then join in the fun with Nakai showing a signboard asking Oshima Yuko if she’s watching the show. These signboard gimmicks are so fun!

Live Performances from Ongaku no Hi

30 Jun

This is an annual music program from TBS that brings together the greatest idols/bands/artistes. Hosted by SMAP’s Nakai Masahiro, this year’s “Ongaku no Hi” will last for as long as 13 hours, making it the longest running music program ever.It is currently broadcasting live in Japan and performances are being uploaded as we speak, so check back to see your favourite artistes!

Disclaimer: As there are too many artistes, i will only post selected videos


AKB48 32nd single – Koisuru Fortune Cookie(In Love with Fortune Cookie)
It’s still 1.5 months away from AKB48’s 32nd single release so i was quite shocked to see them perform it way in advance. Anyways, this is the song that features Sashihara Rino as the center after she won AKB48 5th General Elections. Right away, i felt uncomfortable seeing her as the center. It doesn’t help that the song choice is kind of retro, and ….just not AKB style. I’ll leave my comments in my next post.
