FUJI TV aired live “Johnnys Countdown 2016 – 2017” held last night at the Tokyo Dome.
TOKIO hosted the show this year. Johnnys groups performed a “Thank you medley”, the usual member shuffle medley, group shuffle medley where Kanjani8 attempted and failed to perform Kis-My-Ft2’s rollerskates, and hit song medley. Other highlights include Okamoto father and son performing together, Hey! Say! JUMP 10th anniversary medley, and NEWS announcing a tour starting April. Arashi (minus Aiba) did a bit of livestream from NHK before proceeding to JCD. They performed wearing an Aiba Masaki jacket.
Towards the end of the program, Nagase Tomoya called on everyone to give a round of applause to SMAP.
