Morning Musume 12th Gen Auditions Finished, No Winners Announced

Tsunku declares today that there are no qualified candidates for the 12th gen audition “Mirai Shoujo”. Based on the theme and name “Mirai Shoujo” (girl of the future) Tsunku was looking for a super star to add to the group. However, the performance level of Morning Musume is so high right now that he does not feel it would be appropriate to add anyone into the group at this time. Tsunku also will not be adding anyone from H!P kenshuusei at this time. He does not feel comfortable inserting a new girl into this current lineup. However, that does not mean that the talent and skill level of this group of girls were low. To the contrary, Tsunku feels that he saw many girls who were able to shine throughout the audition. He believes they have plenty of talent, but it just quite isn’t enough to join the group.

He adds that had these girls auditioned at the same time as the 9th gen audition, he would have let them in the group. He feels there are a lot of girls with potential. He does not mean any disrespect toward 9th gen with this statement. He states that since 9th gen joined, they have improved to the point where the current Morning Musume is at the highest level of skill in all of MM history.

Tsunku believes that the potential candidates from this past audition are like raw diamond ores. He is very excited to see what will come of proper refinement. As such, he has invited all of the girls he saw potential in to join H!P kenshuusei to gain more experience. He hopes to unveil them when the proper timing comes along.

In regards to 12th gen audition, he plans to hold another audition again. Essentially re-do 12th gen audition, it will not be considered 13th gen. He also states that he has a lot of things on his mind for the future of H!P – including a new group which could potentially be filled with the girls from this audition. Tsunku has a very positive outlook on everything and hopes you guys will look forward to whats coming next.

Ai/Miki/Rika was a good combo. Which is probably why he continued it with Ai/Reina/Koharu but that worked less well imo.

I hardly ever find them boring. Mainly because they're a bunch of hyper kids. During interviews during the Platinum era only JunLin and Eri were really funny. Sometimes Sayumi if she was being mean.

yeah, those were the days... aai/miki/rika.... i missed them owning the stage...

ai & reina actually kinda work, but koharu was an odd one to add to the mix...

that's it, they were hyper because they're kids... only that...

at least during the PLatinum era there were a few funny members... Junjun and Linlin were really funny, despite (or maybe because of it?) of the language barrier... and Eri with her, er, not so bright self.. hahahaha... and yes, sayumi is really really funny, especially when she's being mean... i still remember her lonely school days when she used to have bugs as her best friends.. LOL and even to this day i copy her line, "I'll be okay, because i'm cute!"

the new members need to learn how to talk better or somehow make themselves more likeable because if they are only focusing at dancing or singing, ppl will get bored.. let's face it, there are many other girlbands who can actually sing and dance better than them..
