Johnnys Countdown 2017 – 2018 Performances

FUJI TV aired live “Johnnys Countdown 2017 – 2018” held last night at the Tokyo Dome, hosted by TOKIO’s Kokubun Taichi and V6’s Inohara Yoshihiko.

The groups perform the usual group shuffle medley, member shuffle medley and group medley. Arashi sprinted to the Dome after their Kohaku gig, without Ninomiya, who was represented by an army of ‘Nino masks’. KinKi Kids made a live relay from Kyocera Dome with their performances accompanied by an orchestra. NEWS did a 15th anniversary medley and as reported, KAT-TUN announced their comeback during the Countdown and performed their new song “Ask Yourself”.

      This year’s countdown was kinda meh when it’s the 20th anniversary special. I expected much more. I’m glad KAT-TUN is coming back, but the performance of the second song was just okay. It’s obvious that they need to get back in the groove with each other.

      Did I hear it right in the end? The three Junior groups (SixTones, Snow Man and Love Tones) are going to debut? Or just that it’s their debut at the countdown show?

        I haven’t watched it yet. Do you have the time stamp so I could take a listen?

          About the debut? It’s in the very end when that Shonentei guy is wrapping up the show.

            Thanks. I think they’re just referring to the groups debuting at countdown. The one guy asked whoever debuted to raise their hands.

              Awww. Those poor guys are going to still Juniors in their 30s! Let them debut for real!

      • Himi Tsu

        He was hosting Kouhaku. Was not able to leave like the other members and could not make it.

        Same as last year but with Aiba missing that time.

      Why no one wished Okada on his marriage? I was expecting that…. Also there were no duets, that was kind of sad…

      • Himi Tsu

        Good question :o Dunno, maybe because all the “close” Johnny’s members already wished it on television?
