      UVERworld?! God, it’s been a while since their last appearance in a TV broadcast… I can’t even remember the last time they did it. Of course they’ll perform their new single (the Gintama live-action movie theme song – what a tie-in btw) in a way to promote their new album (the first one in three years).

    • Skai

      No Namie Amuro?
      Other than that, it seems to be a good lineup.

      • V6

        Hasn’t it been ages since the last time Namie appeared live on music variety shows?

        • Yes, she doesn’t do TV promo.

    • Urara Kasugano

    • ayyyeeee Crystal Kay snuck on in there

    • V6

        Sakamoto has 2 shows of his stageplay that day, and the vary last show the next day. Perhaps others are busy with something too?

      excited for uverworld ;v; takuya/sho interaction, ahhhh. they’re definitely performing “decided” but i’m kinda hoping they get to do another, older song as well. probably not, but i can hope.

    • What

      Is there no Johnny’s Medley this year?

      • guest

        Last year it was announced a week after the artist list was out.

        • guest
