Southern all Stars is my goto summer band! They have such feel good music! I approve! But if we can't have them, let's have SMAP
helios_blue 11th-Oct-2013 07:21 pm (UTC)
OMG Sazan!
But they'll be like... 65-ish in 2020? That'll be quite a spectacle XD
As for the idol section, I'm more for EXILE than Johnny's groups, sorry SMAP and Arashi

Utada singing at the Olympics pretty much feels like a requirement, lmao. It'd be sad to not see her there. Same goes for Namie.
minam_shi 11th-Oct-2013 07:50 pm (UTC)
Oh noo, no Johnny's groups please ( ̄ー ̄)
I wish for EXILE or someone like Fukuyama Masaharu !
It would be great to have Yuzu thought

as much as I love a lot of them, I do agree. I do believe some of them will be, but you never know.
hybridrainbow00 11th-Oct-2013 10:07 pm (UTC)
None of these artists are officially performing, right? It's just a "who do you want so we can contact them?" survey? Hikki WILL be out of hiatus by 2020. ψ(*`ー´)ψ I agree with glider, she almost has to perform at the Olympics. I would be so much more proud of her than usual. <3 /fangirlmoment

I'd also wanna see Namie (I hope she's still releasing music; she looks AMAZING for 36.), SMAP (I was never a fan of their music, but I have lots of respect for them), Arashi (iz fangirl), B'z (recent fan) for artists on that list. Just...please, god...keep AKB48 away.
exoticsj 11th-Oct-2013 10:27 pm (UTC)
Agreed!!I dont think AKB48 should be even there!!But somehow if i think of japan i think of them.
contralilium 11th-Oct-2013 10:34 pm (UTC)
i would LOVE TO SEE UTADA PERFORM on a gigantic stage, it would be amazing~! The question is, if she were in the lineup, what song would she sing?

MISIA performing would also be awesome as fuck
pure08starlight I am happy, Arashi is up there!11th-Oct-2013 11:13 pm (UTC)
Im surprised that AKB isnt on the top 5. I like this line up tho Ayu is missing.
aneternalchain 11th-Oct-2013 11:47 pm (UTC)
I vote for... KAT-TUN.

Aha. A fangirl can dream, right? :D
paulyhaiidii 12th-Oct-2013 12:02 am (UTC)

X Japan?? u_u

baka_neko3 12th-Oct-2013 10:22 am (UTC)

love323able 12th-Oct-2013 01:39 am (UTC)
Arashi @ #2 :)

But was expecting PERFUME to rank as well. ?...
yukinoo13 12th-Oct-2013 02:26 am (UTC)
I'm surprised that AKB ranked so high O_o
lady_mercury 12th-Oct-2013 02:34 am (UTC)
im getting so tired of this tokyo 2020 shit. omg this country is so insane over this crap.
kodochalover 12th-Oct-2013 05:26 am (UTC)
i'm kinda starting to feel that too.
and OMG your icon is ♥♥
nanase21 12th-Oct-2013 03:20 am (UTC)
I'm glad Namie, Ikimonogakari and Arashi there, but yeah, will they be relevant in 7 years?
Plus I think it would be good to get someone that represents japanese culture, not whomever is more popular according to fans...
But yay. lol
