It’s been announced that idol group AKB48 will guest-feature on the December 19th broadcast of Fuji TV’s ‘SMAP X SMAP Special‘.
The members will dress up in Santa outfits for the special occasion, and sing Christmas carols like “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” with SMAP. Both groups will take the stage for a total of six songs, including AKB48’s ultra-popular hit, “Kaze wa Fuiteiru“.
SMAP X SMAP has also invited other guests to participate in the special, such as Abe Sadawo and YOU for “Bistro SMAP”, and Nakai Masahiro (who’ll deliver a parody of Shoujo Jidai as “Showa Jidai”). Additionally, viewers will finally get to learn the results for Gory Pamyu Pamyu’s challenge on the ‘SMAVEX DANCE Contest’.
The ‘SMAP x SMAP Special’ will air on December 19th at 10:30 p.m. JST.source
