Ooh, not to sure about those outfits, or that creepy as hell looking Lumiere. What's with the Disney stuff and NHK lately, there was the big medley on Kohaku last year and now there's this thing, am i missing something?

Laughing, those outfits are the same base designs they've been using for literally all their performance costumes except now they're in a maid theme.

Japan seems to be infatuated with Disney as a whole, idk. I've seen plenty of people (from ordinary folks to all manner of celebrities) express love for Disney and they always like to go to the Tokyo Disneyland and whatnot. Maybe the NHK is just going off that or there's some kind of anniversary coming up?

Most likely.

I actually think this is their most exciting performance in...a while. Their part in the Kouhaku medley was cute and it was refreshing to see them do something out of their element -- not to mention, they'll definitely be singing this live, and it's always nice to hear their voices in a natural state. Cool thing to anticipate while we have another two months of no LEVEL3 news to endure.

Exactly why I'm looking forward to this! Especially the second performance of Disney Swing Medley Big Band Medley. I'm really curious to hear/see them do a swing style performance!

THIS MEANS MORE A~CHAN RAWNESS. NNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN

August will be a big month for them: blu-ray releases, summer festivals, NHK Disney performance, and (eventually) LEVEL3 release announcement.

What makes you say that?
I'd be very surprised if there isn't an elaborate dance routine to go with the performance

I do look forward to seeing this though, not just for the perfume segment, but the show as a whole sounds pretty cool, momoiclo doing under the sea sounds fun

...They've seriously done everything this era. Light-up androids. Esper uniforms. Detectives. Retro/Uterus. And now. Maids.

I'm assuming based off their Kouhaku performance, where they did some cute little moves but sang it (from what I could ascertain) 100% live. There's also basically no reason to bother recording a pre-existing track for a one-time performance like this, especially not one where their voices won't be altered in any way.

Hmmm, they may be the same basic cut out but they still look so cute in the maid costumes! And wow it's nice to see them wearing such a nice vivid red again! They don't wear that color often, not that bright and vivid at least xD AND THEY HAVE BOWS IN THEIR HAIR KYAH. I'm not expecting them NOT to but hearing them sing a cute Disney song live would just be the cutest and greatest thing ever! They did it splendidly last year at Kouhaku! And Beauty and The Beast is my 3rd favorite Disney film and that song would just be GAAAAH done by them.

It would be 11:30AM! Not sure about the Keyhole TV though. Quality not too great from what I've seen in the past but it is something!
