The list of performers for this year’s New Year’s extravaganza that is Kohaku Uta Gassen has been announced and as was widely expected considering they’re supporters of the event – AKB48 have been invited once more to join the Red Team. This will be the 4th time for them to appear in the event.
However, 2 teams that are likely to be disappointed not to have been invited seperately are SKE48 and NMB48 who have enjoyed considerable success this year. I can see them appearing with AKB48 to be perfectly honest so all is not lost.
The White Team have triumphed over the last couple of years so with cute child actress/singer Mana Ashida, 2 Korean groups (KARA/Girls Generation) and AKB48 on the Red Team, can they overturn the odds and get the win this year. We’ll find out on December 31st.
The full list of participants are as follows:
