Johnnys Countdown 2015 – 2016 Performances

As previously reported, FUJI TV broadcast live “Johnnys Countdown 2015 – 2016”. They held a survey, asking fans “What song do you want to hear?” and “Which two Johnnys do you want to see together?”.

Arashi hosted the show. V6, who stayed for Kohaku appeared via VTR. Hey! Say! JUMP, who held their own Countdown Live at Kyocera Dome in Osaka, performed for JCD via livestream.

The broadcast started with the groups singing a song as voted by fans, followed by a collaboration medley, group song shuffle medley, KAT-TUN 10th anniversary medley, Kinki Kids 20th anniversary medley, and the Top 5 Dream Duet with a surprise appearance. Check out the performances below.

    • NN

      Thanks for sharing!

    • Aya Tsukiko Sora

      Shuji to Akira brought me into tears I didn’t expected that what a surprise

    • kunyit

      nice surprise from yamapi and kame..didnt expect Pi would performed last night..
      and kawai got his wish :D

    • jane

      ohno is really such a good singer actually woaaa

      • kunyit

        yes he is..he is good at singing dancing acting etc

      • konokoko

        His voice is too smooth and sounded soft. I couldn’t hear much fault and he harmonized very well with Higashiyama. That face of him doesn’t look like he was doing high notes for that part. I thought he was using backtrack but it was live.
        Too used to Arashi lip-syncing. This is a bit surprising for me too.

        • leven_heap

          singing looks so easy for ohno.his live singing sounds almost like recording.he looks relax even singing high notes.he really enjoy singing

      • Midna

        Him singing live was the highlight of JCD for me <3 that, and his two shot with Higashiyama

    • wait someone fill me in on the marius thing please

      • echu

        He’s under aged, so he couldn’t perform on tv late at night (aka “work”).

        • I see! thank you :-)

          • guest

            Due to their ages, one SZ member was added to the JCD line-up every year for the past 4 years.
            But now poor Marius will have to wait until 2018 to join them, lol.

            • echu

              Well lol he was still able to appear in the concert but as part of the audience.

              • guest

                Yeah, and it’s not that bad for him actually, since he probably got more attention that way than if he was on stage.
                (But I’d like to see him standing next to Nagase…)

                • echu

                  Next year maybe?

                  • kunyit

                    marius can only perform after 2018

    • Ja’Crispy

      Why did kanjani8 have to sing that God awful song…

    • misu

      Some year end shows can be boring because it could just be another live performance of the same song from the same artist, but Johnny’s countdown is never boring. I can actually follow along every single song this year. =p

    • me

      HiroTacchon just bring their domestic life onto the stage, and i’m not even complaining! LMAO
      nice to see a surprise performance from Shuuji to Akira, tho i wished it’d be OhnoKame,
      but seeing Higashi-senpai and Ohno is not bad either <333
      and the Keio-boys combie!! how happy Fuma was to perform with his beloved Sakurai senpai!
      and Duo J-Fumi, can't help myself but LOL-ing.
      duet two ex Jrs Leaders of Kansai (Baru) and Kanto (Takki) just bring back so many memories ^^

    • light

      I will watch it later,but everyone seemed to be happy about this year JCD!

    • namira

      I was really expecting Ryokame, nevertheless Shuuji to Akira is forever welcome :)

    • leven_heap

      my first time watching johnnys countdown.all bcause of arashi.i hope arashi can continue coming to johnnys countdown after this.this is actually better than i understand why people always prefer arashi in johnny countdown than kouhaku.
      this countdown actually help me to get to now other groups.

      • gerek

        i would recommend watching past countdowns too. you think this was good right? the old ones were 10x better. try the ones arashi hosted first (2007-2010)

        • leven_heap

          seriously?do you know where i can watch or dload it??
          so 2007-2008 is the first countdown they mc?

    • ran

      I can’t stop watching KAT-TUN singing She! Her! Her!

      • Twinkle Kilara

        Haha, I thought that was the best!

    • This countdown was so fun. I hadn’t watched one in a while. Only thing that was weird for me was them not mentioning Taguchi? It’s his last countdown so I felt it was something that should be mentioned. Oh well.

      • His withdrawal from the group was controversial in the first place so it’s best that they didn’t say anything in my opinion.

    • I’m rewatching right now and it’s so wrong that they had to put Nakayama Yuma’s name on the screen when they were singing Sorafune lol. It was cool to see Kame and Yamapi perform together again. Would have been cooler if they did a little NEWS reunion since Nishikido and Yamapi were there but oh well. I think Arashi should be at the Johnny’s Countdown from now on because they seem more at home there. They be can their goofy selves without the formality of Kohaku. I almost wish it were longer.

      • me

        i think there’s nothing wrong with put Yuma’s name on the screen because they put the name for all solo acts like Higashiyama-san and Sato Atsuhiro-san too. they didn’t put Pi’s name because he performed as Akira of Shuuji to Akira duo. just my 2cent ^^

        • Reileen

          Yeah and Uchi Hiroki and Yara Tomoyuki got introduced as well

    • Encha277

      That was great! Seeing the Arashi & NEWS song swap was fantastic!

      • Kodoko

        Tegoshi vibrato was overkill tho.

        • leven_heap

          he needs to stop doing that.i cant take it

    • faifantc

      It felt really rushed this year for some reason… I wish there were a little more talk portions.

    • eruki

      What a nice to see Yamapi.. I still have love-hate feel toward him but he remain that very good looking guy. I guess I miss him too just like Kame xD

    • lufie

      Poor yamapi. He only appear very short but his mic was not working fine. I want to hug him too ~~

    • Ztf

      Seishun Amigo was everything, the top5 was really nice.

    • An_dromeda

      yamapi… hisashiburi… missed your lovely smile!!!!! <3

    • Twinkle Kilara

      They are all great! Hey Say Jump and News were were such cute kids. But I was shocked that it was only 1 hour. Is that normal?

      • kunyit

        it is same like the previous JCD

        • Twinkle Kilara

          Ah, okay~ This is only my second time watching it.

      • Reileen

        the broadcast is always 1 hour and always at Tokyo Dome

        • Twinkle Kilara

          I thought last year it was outdoors so there were many complaints?

    • disqus_fnwCMQDX7u

      how they get people from kouhaku to there in time?

      • faifantc

        They performed pretty early in Kohaku, so there was plenty of time since this concert started at 11:45.

    • neko

      why Marius wasn´t with sexy zone?

      • kunyit

        he is still underage so based on japan law he couldnt perform after 9pm,,

    • kamemin23

      shuji to akira was a big surprise! i missed seeing kame and yamapi sing together. i got teary-eyed seeing kame’s happy face during their performance. this year’s countdown was good but quite short for me. it’s great that arashi & kat-tun joined again this year.

    • farahtrifarahfatin

      news sing arashi monster not very sync

    • p-chan

      “Nishi no Subaru” and “Higashi no Takizawa” was the best
      – it reminds me of the good old Golden Age of Jonny`s Jr!!!!! <<<<3

      Yamapi and Kame`s performance was the biggest suprise ever!!!

      But I hoped for a little more TOKIO/KinKi Kids or Eito/Arashi
