      356,832 to 346,929???

    • yacchaitai

      Seiko and Ringo saved the show!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Risa

        Yes! Both ladies were amazing. Great performances.

      • HyperMoot .

        I wouldn’t go as far as saying they saved the show but they were good, especially Shiina

    • byebicycle

      aiba did great, i’m proud. <3 wanted the white team to win just for him tbh.

    • H

      Utada was great, this was her most emotional performance of Hanataba yet. Still bummed out she didn’t perform at the show…

      • HyperMoot .

        it was good enough but her duet with Oda on the 23rd was way more emotional imo

        • Dayse

          That´s EXACTLY what I was going to say! Telepathy much? LOL
          I think this performance was ok, just ok (her first live of HWKN was way better tbh) and the small talk after her performance looked so awkward LOL the female host didn´t know what to say and so did Hikaru (she was so cute tho).

    • haha

      Another Electoral College wins!

      • yamakita

        Yes, where one vote from a special judge equals hundreds of thousands of people’s voice. But I’m just being a sour grape. I probably wouldn’t care if the male host weren’t Aiba.

        • RudeAgustD

          Still bitter abt it. Looks like other voting points become suddenly irrelevant. 1 judge vote equals 1 ball DF!

    • yamakita

      I watched this live, staying up all night. I’ll never hurt my liver for this crap again.

    • DoSHachiko

      I really loved Matsuda Seiko’s performance, it was so beautiful. D:
      Also the fact that Sayanee got center for AKB Kouhaku Senbatsu and poor Aiba crying near the end of One Love as well. I was about to cry. :c

    • Dayse

      Aiba is so precious. <3

    • mamoswine1

      Great I like it, happy for AKB48 Nogi and Keya46 lol BTW where is morning musume? someone said their Utakata what hit digitally so they should be invited like how perfume and hoshino gen hits digitally too.

      • Kanjo Maru

        That person exaggerated the hit very much,to be honest…

    • Every year I have to worry about MC messing up the show. Godzilla and PPAP was the best part.

    • shinryu

      Was there a reason for Utada not to be in the NHK Hall? Stream was a bit laggy so I might missed it.

      • Lauren

        She’s in London right now! :)

        • shinryu

          oh I see! Thanks for telling

    • Lol

      Oh well…why nhk bother asked millions audiences in nhk hall and outside to vote when in the end the special judges in the studio outvoted it
      Still bitter with White loss..
      And how dare some netz in girls channel blame it on aiba

      • Kanjo Maru

        I blame boring medleys.

    • mamoswine1

      nice

    • HyperMoot .

    • Midna

      This was a very nice Kouhaku. Much better than last year. Loved it. A little upset with the results, but the red team did great :D You did your best Aiba, and you were amazing <3

      • light

        I’ve just finished actually watching the show, the faces when they said Red won, Arimura too looked lost lol

        • Guuu

          People in gchan said Arimura was the better host. I digress. She was fair but was stiff and dead in the eyes most of the times.
          http://girlschannel.net/topics/1009847/
          I’m bitter because Aiba was amazing and Kasumi-chan was helped a lot by him. There was only a couple of the times he went stiff especially because of godzilla skits. Netizens just want to bring him down when he definitely was the best host that night.

    • childish

      Hoshino Gen way my MVP.
      Props to Keyakizaka though, best idol performance in a while.

    • light

      Arashi were cute and sounded good in their medley =) Nino was hilarious in the half time show!XD
