Arashi might be this year’s Kohaku music special hosts



Arashi might be picked up to be NHK’s New Year’s Eve music special hosts for the third time, reports Tokyo Sports on September 7.

It has been reported NHK producers are beginning to look for potential hosts for Kohaku Uta Gassen’s red (akagumi) female artist team, and white (shirogumi) male artist team.

“A production team for the show has been finalised, and now they’ve begun discussions about what to do this year.  At this rate, Arashi will probably be asked to be the shirogumi hosts for the third straight year,” said one source from NHK.

Although no one can definitely say this will happen, there is no denying the fact the group attracted TV ratings of over 40% in their past two Kohaku shows.

It has been reported the most likely candidate for the women’s akagumi host this year will be actress Maki Horikita, who has been playing the main character in NHK’s popular drama 梅ちゃん先生 (Ume-chan Sensei).

I love Arashi with all my heart, but Kouhaku just hasn't been the same since the year they started dominating it. :( I'd prefer a medley performance and for them to race back to Johnny's Countdown like Tokio do.

I personally think they've liven Kouhaku up being hosts, although I do think it's still rather unbalanced in terms of numbers of hosts. (But last year was just adorable with Mao.)

I don't mind if the duty was taken off of the boys though, just cuz they've done so much already.

I agree with OP, I would like to see them back at Johnny's Countdown instead.

I'd thought that they wouldn't be the host for this year since they were already busy with 24htv and Ara-fes...

If they hosted again, I would be seriously happy. And if they didn't, I would still be happy for them. <3 Arashi does so much all.the.time, if they could get a break somewhere, it might be nice~

I'm happy whether they host it or not, but I agree with OP. I miss them at countdown even if it's not nearly as big of a deal as Kouhaku.

Horikita Maki will put me to sleep if she hosts with them. I like her but as a host I don't think she'd do very well.

I hope they go to Johnny's countdown this year..they r so busy already~~

lol this is like my 5th time reading this

the first time i read it. i was like it's just tabloid talk.
I really feel they won't be hosting this year.

I won't be mad though lol
just doubt it will happen

I love Arashi, but WE NEED NEW BLOOD. There are so many other artists deserving of hosting 24 Hour Terebi and Kouhaku.
eevaleena 8th-Sep-2012 06:50 am (UTC)
Agreed with this!
csaca 8th-Sep-2012 06:43 am (UTC)
Totally don't want them on JCD, so be on Kouhaku and shine~

But Maki? Please T___T Mao-chan was such a bright princess of the night, what can that woman do after her? She can't even talk well.
ciachan 8th-Sep-2012 07:55 am (UTC)
agree! Maki is such a boring person..

not feeling this very much. they don't bring anything new by hosting as a group, and the only good MC is sho. though as a fan i would of course love it if they were invited to perform again.
aeslis 10th-Sep-2012 12:36 am (UTC)
I don't really like Sho as an MC, myself. He fits the mold of what an MC is supposed to act like, but there's something about the way he carries himself, and the way he kind of monopolizes things, that puts me off. I feel like he's less of his natural self, and he's zipped on the MC 'personality', as it were? Whereas someone like Nakai just sort of naturally exudes the right attitude. I dunno. No one in Arashi really wears the role comfortably. They seem to be boy-next-door-trying-to-act-like-right-and-proper-MCs instead of just taking the role and letting their own selves shine through.

My personal opinion, anyway.
shunluv 8th-Sep-2012 06:59 am (UTC)
it wold be great if they host again but honestly i prefer if they given a break this year after 24hr tv and Arafes, it just to much if they given Kouhaku with huge project one after another..

maybe they could host next year and this year could be given to Nakai again so at least can make thing different and they don't have to do for 3 straight year but maybe alternate year xD

i would love if they come as performer doing awesome medley again and then go to countdown like Tokio did having fun with the JE family xD
i love Maki and i hope she would do good if she chosen though after Mao awesome hosting last year it kinda hard to follow up but maybe she gonna surprise us xD

Can they just host the Countdown again instead? I miss seeing all the adorableness when they interact with the other Johnny's groups. It's not the same when they're only showing up on video.
geekyoldme 8th-Sep-2012 07:36 am (UTC)
THIS

It's totally different. T_T
geekyoldme 8th-Sep-2012 07:35 am (UTC)
I really wish for Arashi to be at JCD again, its different without them. Also I would prefer to watch the fun dorky Arashi during JCD then their seriousness at Kohaku. LOLS. *IMAGINE ARASHI DOING SUKIYANEN AGAIN* AHHHH

STILL WILL SUPPORT WHEREVER THEY WILL BE. <3
arara_chan 8th-Sep-2012 12:06 pm (UTC)
I completely agree!! :D
sekainostar 8th-Sep-2012 07:41 am (UTC)
Maki Horikita no, :( she is so booooring. =__=
squallina 8th-Sep-2012 09:17 am (UTC)


Sorry, couldn't help myself. ;p Actually, I don't know if she is or not. I haven't seen her being interviewed or guesting that much. Is she that bad?
ocha_suki 8th-Sep-2012 07:50 am (UTC)
agree with OP, bring arashi back to JCD, they'll have a lot of fun in JCD than in kohaku :/
chizzyrei 8th-Sep-2012 09:57 am (UTC)
yes for more fun!!
