      • melissa

        because the acts that sell haven’t changed that much in the past 5 years, sadly

        still johnny’s – LDH – 46/48 that sell the most + old timers

    • monica_monami

      Thanks! Haven’t watch it yet! But I heard there’s Nagano Hiroshi’s wedding celebration a little💕

    • light

      PPAP following Sting lmao

    • Mahdyah Rosita


    • I

      I’m not a fan of Johnny’s but I’ve got to say that V6 performance with Arashi, NEWS(?) and TOKIO on stage with them celebrating one of their members getting married moved me. LOL

    • HyperMoot .

      I’m disappointed XBZK47 didn’t show up.

    • Jani Love

      Best part of the night was Nagano wedding celebration with other Johnny’s groups. ♥

    • atralail

      um what’s that QR code thing those 48G girls were desperately trying to promote

      • DoSHachiko

        Judging from the talk after, I’m assuming it was for Paruru’s post-graduation drama where she plays the shio-taiou daughter of the main hero.

      • Kanjo Maru

        Entry to win a prize. I don’t know if they’re individual or not.

    • xameix

      wth, even exile the second is on the list and still no flower

    • Historia Lenz

      I love the “Don’t You Get It?” performance. It would have been perfect if Jintan were there. It would have been a riot! XD

    • annie

      that dude from 3jsb’s voice omg idk if he’s sick or if he’s just been struggling lately

      • th

        He has been struggling since last year year end shows. I think he ruined his vocal chords after doing 60 concerts tour last year.
