With the current Morning Musume leader Ai Takahashi to graduate this coming Fall, music goo published a poll asking their viewers to vote for the best former leaders of Morning Musume. Fans were asked to think about all of the previous leaders and decide who they felt left the deepest impression for later generations of Morning Musume members.
Of course, its no surprise that the number one spot went to Yuuko Nakazawa who was the very first leader of Morning Musume. Surely, if anyone were to “set the bar” for any future leaders, she would be the one.
Ranking of Leaders:
01. Yuuko Nakazawa: 63,688 votes
02. Mari Yaguchi: 4,332 votes
03. Kaori Iida: 3,944 votes
04. Hitomi Yoshizawa: 3,198 votes
05. Ai Takahashi: 1,582 votes
06. Miki Fujimoto: 1,096 votes
