Another first for Arashi! Arashi will finally debut on the prestigious year-end NHK Kouhaku Utagassen music programme.

This year's Kouhaku will be hosted by SMAP's Nakai Masahiro and for the first time will include three Johnny's acts: SMAP, TOKIO and Arashi. (Apparently NHK gave in to Johnny's request to increase their quota to three bands instead of two.)

More info on Kouhaku here:

And I'm not sure about this, but I think the show can be watched on NHK World. Someone please check this, thanks. ^^

Airing night:
Thursday, 31 December 2009.
7:15 - 11:45 pm.


The list of performing artistes on Kohaku's official website is up. You can check here:

White Team includes Arashi, NYC Boys, SMAP and TOKIO from Johnny's. 4 acts from JE!

Looks like Chinen, Arashi/Ohno fanboy, gets to be on Kouhaku for the first time with Arashi as well. Oh the joy~ :D The 60th Kouhaku sure looks to be a memorable one. Talk about ending the year with a bang for Arashi. ^^

It can be watched on NHK World.  We get it every year here in Singapore.  

I am apprehensive about their participation on Kouhaku... I mean it is wonderful that at long last, NHK has to acknowledge the popularity of Arashi, but, to have them at Kouhaku, means there will be less of them at JE Countdown, doing baka-things with the other groups.  

I guess they will also have to do what TOKIO does every year, hopping from one place to another, if they were to make it for JE Countdown.  

I hope KINKI will take over the hosting of JE Countdown this year... Since they are already doing their own concert there...  

I cannot imagine having KATTUN do it... I am sorry KATTUN fans... but I really can't!!  crybaby

I guess we could start listing out if NHK is available where everyone is, so everyone can try to watch it on real time. ^^

Kouhaku - 31st Dec.
Japan start time: 7:15pm

Malaysia & Brunei
- Astro, NHK, Channel 963
Time difference: -1
- so it should be 6:15pm in Malaysia and Brunei.

Please check the schedule first for confirmation

Does this air in NHK for real?? or in BS2?? Because seriously, I remember last year seeing SMAP singing some song and its aired in BS2... Well either way... I hope it airs in whichever cable channel I have because I want to do the countdown with them in realtime...!
