Kohaku Uta Gassen 2010 Line-Up Revealed

24 11 2010

NHK announced today the artists lined up for the 61st Kohaku Uta Gassen extravaganza. Earlier news reports saying that Korean groups BIG BANG and KARA would be involved were completely incorrect. 44 artists have been invited with 22 on the Reds (Female) and 22 on the White (Male) teams. 5 of the artists will be making their 1st appearance on the show. The hosts will be Nao Matsushita and Arashi. The show begins at 7.30pm on New Year’s Eve and run for 4 hours and 15 mins until 11.45pm.

The artists are as follows:
