Anyways, the rumour was TRUE afterall! This year Kohaku is free from K-POP! OMG... even the 'predictions' got it wrong when they still include Shoujo Jidai in it. Oh well. I'm happy that Nana-sama still will be in it. And congrats to the 1st timer Kohaku like Eito & Momoiro!
whited_79 26th-Nov-2012 01:12 pm (UTC)
Eito and MomoClo and Nana! XD
yuma_daisuki 26th-Nov-2012 09:48 am (UTC)
5 Johnnys group~~~ Wow!!!
shibaru11 26th-Nov-2012 09:57 am (UTC)
does anyone has any idea how those performers were chosen?
yeay for K-POP free Kouhaku....
exdream1999 26th-Nov-2012 10:38 am (UTC)
It's a combination of tradition, break out performers, and (mostly) trying to please all age groups as this is supposed to be watched by families.

(Also labels/management bartering to get more of their acts on...)
wieauchimmernun 26th-Nov-2012 10:01 am (UTC)
What do the numbers beside the artists mean?
a_cheshire_grin 26th-Nov-2012 10:02 am (UTC)
How often they have already participated in the Kouhaku!
a_cheshire_grin 26th-Nov-2012 10:01 am (UTC)
ayaka and YUI!! Yeah! *______*
And Arashi, of course!! <33

I guess I also should be excited to see Ayu in the lineup, but her last few albums were just bla, so yeah...T.T

And oh! no Tohoshinki?! But okay...the boys are busy enough!!
subarunee 26th-Nov-2012 10:03 am (UTC)
I wonder what Song Eito choose for Kouhaku...
I hope their bring Tsubusa ni Koi with Band or maybe Puzzle since Saito Kazuyoshi appear too...
ocha_suki 26th-Nov-2012 10:31 am (UTC)
Tsubasa ni Koi!! how i love that song <33
ohcrepe 26th-Nov-2012 10:17 am (UTC)
Dear J&A, stop trying to make NYC happen. Screw the barter system. NYC songs and sales don't reflect the same credibility of other artistes in the lineup. Fuck this.
deyuna_decchan 26th-Nov-2012 11:30 am (UTC)
at least they're better than momoiro. I still have no idea why didnt johnnys put Hey!Say!JUMP instead
gigabytexx 26th-Nov-2012 10:19 am (UTC)
wow lol
yuui1010 26th-Nov-2012 10:34 am (UTC)
Nakashima MIka is there^^
And we have Tachi Hiroshi and I hope Fuku-san perform live in the hall. the list getting shorter?
exdream1999 26th-Nov-2012 10:34 am (UTC)
I am really, really excited for some of the first timers this year!

Mostly because I'm not going back home this year for the holidays, so I'm almost for certain going to be watching this in real time on New Year's Eve. (It's just a question on whether I'm going to be watching it alone or with other people...)

marchlavender 26th-Nov-2012 10:44 am (UTC)
I will be watching it in real time as well. Alone though as I will be going to Japan alone this time.
marchlavender 26th-Nov-2012 10:38 am (UTC)
Here for Princess Princess and Saito Kazuyoshi! *happily flying*
exdream1999 26th-Nov-2012 10:40 am (UTC)
I am honestly shocked that this is Princess Princess's first time performing, but happy they're performing.
ocha_suki 26th-Nov-2012 10:39 am (UTC)
i see Ayaka & Nakashima Mika there...go Akagumi!! ^^
why the heck that NYC is still on the list?! =_=
and no Yuzu on Shirogumi this year? i love their performance last year though :/
subarunee 26th-Nov-2012 10:58 am (UTC)
Will NYC still bring Yuuki 100% since the song is belong to Sexy Zone now...
lilly0 26th-Nov-2012 10:54 am (UTC)
OMG I don't even know where to start!! I'm so happy about several bands in this!!

KANJANI! Smap, TOKIO, Arashi, Exile
Then there is Saito Kazuyoshi <3
I would have preferred Yuma as a solo artist instead of NYC though.
And AAA, Koda Kumi, Ayu, AKB48, Yuki Saori.
yuma_daisuki 26th-Nov-2012 11:46 am (UTC)

Me too~
katzsong 26th-Nov-2012 11:01 am (UTC)
PERFUME!!! and AAA! aside from the obvious Arashi and K8 :P Many good artists/groups. This year gonna be awesome again ^^ YATTA! URESHII!
dreamweavernyx 26th-Nov-2012 11:06 am (UTC)

crying at the lack of flumpool >: there goes my hopes of getting to watch them on tv this year sigh
also yuzuuuuuu why are you not there ;______;

AYAKA-SAMA♥ and wao congrats ske!! excited~ (but no flooding the stage this time please, it was hard enough keeping track of everyone last year)
idek whether to be excited about kyary being there, or horribly afraid for the costume she's going to pull out

yui!! glad to see her for what'll probably be the last time before her hiatus♥ i've been wanting her to go on kouhaku FOREVER, hope that if she sings fight she'll do it with a choir! \o/

also HY alksjsdkgfjdflk YESSSSS.

arashi/akb/ikimonogakari were pretty much givens but i'm still happy :D
perfume, nishino kana, funky monkey babys, and AAA, congraaaaaats :D

overall I AM REALLY HOPING AKAGUMI WINS THIS YEAR. imho they have a much better lineup....

Some artist yay others not so yay. I think Superfly would have deserved to be invited and Miwa.
Interesting that not even DBSK were invited I mean they are seen as jpop acts anyway (unless htye decided not to participate this year) and no Kara. Not that I'm a fan of SNSD or Kara but Kara is actually making a effort compared to SNSD.
Saito Kazuyoshi!! Awesome.
rainbow_yarn 26th-Nov-2012 02:41 pm (UTC)
Superfly would have been faaaaaaaaantaaaaaaaaastiiiiiiiic
lelomew 26th-Nov-2012 11:15 am (UTC)
Wow. What took YUI so long?
fallblau_129 29th-Nov-2012 09:47 am (UTC)
who knows, but i'm sooo glad that she's finally there>_< btw, when is this event again? hehe
yukkiz 26th-Nov-2012 11:20 am (UTC)
Not surprised why Mr.Children don't appear in the list..They still keep their rule
Very glad Naoto Inti Raymi is on the list !!
margotleclerc 26th-Nov-2012 11:37 am (UTC)
Your comment made me curious. Can you explain for me which rule are you talking about ?

(Happy for Naoto Inti Raymi too)
shiro_renja 26th-Nov-2012 11:34 am (UTC)
Johnny : Stop making NYC happen...and put Kinki Kids there instead (or any other groups really...except for sexy zone)
thewarpedmelody 26th-Nov-2012 12:05 pm (UTC)
Kinki Kids need to be on the show...
liime_arix 26th-Nov-2012 11:43 am (UTC)
So the Kpop thing was true like nikkansports said though I do think the reason they gave was kinda crappy.

This list seems strange this year, I thought there would be more people. I'm glad Golden Bomber, Sandaime J Soul Brothers and Momoclo, this year was their year. I hope Kyary doesn't disappoint :|

Edited at 2012-11-26 11:44 am (UTC)
thewarpedmelody 26th-Nov-2012 12:03 pm (UTC)
I think that politics isn't the main reason.

KARA and SJJD sales are currently on the decline.
However TVXQ and 2PM sales are doing quite well in Japan though
tsukikei 26th-Nov-2012 11:46 am (UTC)
Looks like it'll be a good show. Can't wait to see AKB and SKE rock it.

But I miss L'Arc in this line-up.
thewarpedmelody 26th-Nov-2012 12:02 pm (UTC)
"But I miss L'Arc in this line-up."
apneatic_melody 26th-Nov-2012 11:49 am (UTC)
I'll just be over in my corner crying rivers of joy over MomoClo. ;A;

It was high time they invited SKE and Kanjani.
Happy for Yuki Saori, Naoto Inti Raymi and Saito Kazuyoshi too.

Sad at no Kobayashi Sachiko tho. Fabulous factor went down a bit.
