In the said event Nakai got to interact with 1100 fans and talk about his CD Solo Debut, “I’ve been saying this for the past 25 years but the office does not make any move for me. If I make it, I’m sure I’ll appear in Kohaku”, causing laughter among the audience. His photobook has sold 330,000 units, he declares his goal is to sell just as much copies of his debut single.
In last years NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen, SMAP reached the higher ratings among all performances with 49.4% and they’ve been holding onto this title for 3 years, Nakai commented, “I’m honestly really happy”. During Kohaku rehearsals he was constantly pointed out because of his pitch issues by Kusanagi Tsuyoshi (38), “Within myself it’s perfect. I’m not worried about anything”.
