Details On AKB48’s Kouhaku Appearance Unveiled

30 12 2011

Members of AKB48 yesterday unveiled to the press their plans for their appearance on NHK’s annual music spectacular Kouhaku Uta Gassen. Not content last year with just AKB48, SKE48 and NMB48 appearing on the show – all members of the 000 family will take part this year. So that’ll be AKB48, SKE48, NMB48, HKT48, JKT48 and SDN48 – a total of 210 members!! How the hell is the stage going to accomodate all of them!!

They’ll be singing a special medley titled “Kohaku 2011 AKB48 Special MIX ~Ganbarou Nippon!” which consists of 3 of AKB48’s biggest hits this year (Flying Get, Everyday Kachuusha and Kaze wa Fuiteiru). After performing the medley, the members will attempt to form a human letter.

I’d like to say that I’ll be watching Kouhaku as it happens but there’s so many people taking a look at the streaming live broadcast I usually can’t connect so I’ll probably wait until somebody uploads the footage on Youtube.

BTW – the 000 family will be the 5th artist to perform. Ayumi Hamasaki will open the show as she usually does so she can go and do her own live New Year’s Eve concert.

I need to watch this when it gets aired on our local UTB 18.2 channel. 🙂

live streaming in a website or tv?

Through a small software program called Keyhole TV which gives you access to all of Japan’s terrestrial channels. The quality isn’t very good but at least you can watch Kouhaku. I tried watching Kouhaku through it 2 years ago but it was ridiculous how many people were trying to connect at the same time so I gave up.

I think your screen shot is of their rehearsals. I saw a youtube vid with them on their uniforms. ^_^

Yes, you’re quite right. The dresses is from the dress rehearsal when they talked to the media. Thanks for putting up their Kouhaku appearance video up as well. Can’t believe that Akagumi won for a change!
