      Kanjani8 first? I’m happy but that’s so random.

      • kou

        maybe kanjani will go to JCD rite away after that

        • yamakita

          I think that’s the case since Arashi is stuck at Kohaku.

          • guest

            According to Mezamashi, TOKIO will host JCD

          • the groupie who

            TOKIO is hosting this year … seems like Mary just wanted to show her power since the MC, opening and closing acts are all under her

      but yay new songs from the performers woot!

    • light

      Congratulations Arashi, hope they put out a great medley =)

    • yamakita

      It’s weird that Sexy Zone’s order is so late. Maybe it’s because Marius is finally old enough to stay up past 8 p.m.?

      • lol

        he is still underage…his curfew is until 9pm
        maybe sexy zone staying up late as they cant perform fully in JCD with marius is still underage

        • guest

          They’ll perform on JCD with 4 people and Marius will be in the audience, like last year.

    • Arashi is Ootori. Wow. And Kanjani first? Unexpected to me.

    • honey girl

      It is now reported that Hikki’s performance will be held in London. The International Queen!

      • Dayse

        Really? Oh, I’m a bit disapointed, wish she would be performing there…anyway, I totally wanna see her! :D

    • HoneyBeat

      Good to know V6 is in the first half so I can stop watching early lol. I’ll catch the rest later.

    • suezu

      • suezu
