[2008.11.25] Perfume will appear on NHK’s 59th Kouhaku Utaga

Postby ekuseru » Tue Nov 25, 2008 4:34 pm

Congratulations! They finally made it!

Perfume will act in on of the prestigious annual TV show Kouhaku, on the New Year's Eve by NHK.

The program is divided into two color groups, as the title itself says; Red and White Song Battle.

From Wikipedia:
(...) the program divides the most popular music artists of the year into competing teams of red and white. The "red" team or akagumi (赤組, 紅組, akagumi) is composed of all female artists (or groups with female vocals), while the "white" team or shirogumi (白組, shirogumi) is all male (or groups with male vocals). The honor of performing on Kōhaku is strictly by invitation, so only the most successful J-Pop artists and enka singers can perform. In addition to the actual music performances, the costumes, hair-styles, makeup, dancing, and lighting are also important. Even today, a performance on Kōhaku is said to be a big highlight in a singer's career because of the show's large reach.

Hmmm... I'm more interested in the girls team.

Aiko (Her style and singing methods appeal to me)
Ikimonogakari (Very nice and improving young band)
Ai Otsuka (Creates very good ballads)
Speed (The pioneers and most successful Girl band ever!)
Ayumi Hamasaki (The Diva of Jpop)
Perfume (Naturally)


The guys wise...

Ken Hirai (one of the best guy ballad singers ever!)
Shuchishin (they are like... a comedic group :p)

And since Pornograffiti is also in the group... I'm thinking maybe Perfume can do the song Itai Tachi Ichi with them. Hahaha... then that song will be perfect!

what song do you guys thing Perfume will perform?
the song they choose might not be the most recent one but perhaps the most popular one in the passing year. I'm just wondering~ will it be DF or love the world? but then again we had loads of live performances of love the world. maybe they'll make a medley~
and well, I hope we will finally hear them LIVE since Kouhaku performances are all live right?
