Arashi’s Matsumoto Jun has been chosen to be the main MC for NihonTV’s special variety program, “Sekai Ichi no SHOW Time ~Gyara wo Kimeru no wa Anata~“!
This show began back in 2010, and it attracts people from all over the world, who aim to show off their unique talents on stage. 300 audience members will determine how much they would be willing to pay to watch that performance, and actually pay from their own wallets in the end. As a performer himself, Matsumoto commented, “There were many wonderful performance and they were all great!“.
Commenting on his MC role, Matsumoto said, “This was a different position from when I do shows with Arashi, so I was very nervous, but it was an interesting experience.”
Announcer Hatori Shinichi, who served as Matsumoto’s co-host, commented, “He was very natural and I think this was a perfect job for Matsujun. I give him 1oo%!”
As one of the creative spearheads for Arashi’s concerts, Matsumoto felt inspired by the performances he watched. “As an entertainer I was thinking, ‘Oh so there are performances like this too!’ I feel like I was able to be on a good show.“ Hatori himself remarked, “As Matsujun observed all the performances, he kept saying ‘Ah, I can use this’. It’s a great thing for a MC to be able to watch the performances in that way.”
Model Hasegawa Jun participated as the third co-host, and Matsumoto complimented his castmate by saying, “She seemed to genuinely enjoy the performances. She gave good comments of encouragement to the performers and created good vibes on set.” Hasegawa mused,”I sensed all the love that went into all the performance, and it made me realized I have to work harder as well.”
Matsumoto concluded, “It was fun and if there is another opportunity, I would like to do it again.”
