The Top Ten
1 Dimash Kudaibergen Dinmukhamed Kanatuly Kudaibergenov, commonly known as Dimash Kudaibergen (born May 24th, 1994) is a Kazakh singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Dimash is best known as a contestant of Chinese talent show "Singer 2017" where he was declared a runner-up. He is also known for possessing a wide ...read more.

This incredibly talented young artist from Kazakhstan had his international breakthrough only recently with a sensational success at the Chinese T.V. contest "Singer 2017". He's appeared in a great number of concerts and gala events since, winning award after award, and his fanbase continues to grow at an enormous pace. Dimash wows the crowds with stellar performances of pop and folk songs from all over the world sung in their original languages. His voice is characterized by an angelic beauty, and its range of pitch and dynamics doesn't seem to know any boundaries. Dimash is stunningly handsome, and his gentleness and particularly good manners are appreciated by audiences worldwide. All these qualities would make him an ideal ambassador of the Olympic spirit.

Who better to unite the world with one Voice? That would be Sir Dimash. The greatest new vocalist in the world. Do yourself a favor and listen, then you'll understand what the world is saying about this young man. Peace & Love...

He brings gifted and mind boggling vocals, passion, a huge heart and incredible presence. He is an obvious choice for this event!

Dimash is like pattern of new generation of the world! He is perfect in everything and he is "a champion"! He is strong and brave and very competitive, and the same time he is very modest and shy. He has an angelic voice and he is great performer. People say that his voice stops a war, others say he is a bomb! He does deserve to open Olympic games indeed!

2 Arashi

Arashi of course! They will cheer up the ceremony and give a real taste of what's popular in Japan! Sure, some people say they don't want a Johnny's Entertainment Group but in the end if London managed to get One Direction I don't see why ARASHI can't. They are the most popular JE artist and it doesn't matter if the artists aren't intenationally known because this is Tokyo Olympics- sure; it's international but this is a ceremony to celebrate Japanese artists. It doesn't matter what the other countries think of ARASHI because they don't know the real ARASHI; the boys who have a real bond KIZUNA! They are needed in the Ceremony as any J-Pop fan would have heard of ARASHI whether they like them or not! If we want to give the world a flavour of Japan's music then it's not going to work- let's face it- ARASHI (and AKB48) are the most popular idols especially ARASHI! Arashi rocks! They can sing in Japanese- most of their songs has bits of Japanese in it any way! Long live Arashi <3! ...more

I agree! I know that there a J-POP fans, Japan lovers all over the world who we all love! But as a Japanese person, myself I know that ARASHI is the most popular artist right now (and it looks like they will for a long long time). I don't have anything against Vocaloid but in Japan, there are Vocaloid fans (usually the kids that love anime/Akihabara) but Vocaloid isn't actually that well known to kids. Some kids just haven't heard of Vocaloid because ARASHI and other artists appeal so much more! Whoever they choose, I know all the Arashi fans out there (and that is a LOT OF PEOPLE in japan) will back them up! Come on, boys!

Amazing! Simply the best! Need them there to brighten up the ceremony, and they will do just that. It would be cool to have them talking too, because they r pretty funny, though I guess it would be hard as they will have 2 talk in Japanese, so non-japanese won't be able to understand.

Arashi is a special group for not just the Japanese during the 2011 earthquake, but also for many international fans out there. With 1.55 mil official fanclub members, I don't see why they're not popular enough to represent Japan. And when you talk about Japan's national idol, it has to be Arashi. I think they represent Japan a lot, with their energy, smiles, and their meaningful songs and activities like 24H T.V. and also their numerous contributions to the earthquake victims, especially Sho with his News ZERO interviewing activities. And not counting the international fans, which I'm sure is more than 1 million throughout the world, I'm sure there are many others who think like me, and would want them to contribute to Japan's biggest event in recent years.

3 The Gazette The Gazette, originally known as Gazette, is a Japanese visual kei rock band from Kanagawa formed in early 2002. The band is currently signed to Sony Music Records.

Dimash is a world renowned vocalist. The rest of the world need to know of him. His vocals are incomparable. A true artist and a humanitarian. He sings in multiple languages and delivers heart felt performances. Very befitting the olympics

Their performances have a lot of energy and can get everyone pumped up and feel good! The band is capable of arresting the attention of a large audience and appeals to a variety of age groups irrespective of gender. To be honest: As a foreigner, I feel the band has a cool image - attractive but lacking the tame plastic charm of most mainstream boy bands or solo artists which have been associated with Asian artists. The band's immense popularity and charm also cannot be denied! I think they will make the opening memorable and make it unique. I am in no way demeaning other talented artists out there, but I personally feel a cool rock-band like the GazettE will make the opening memorable. Though once very unfairly considered a band for fangirls and visual-kei fans I am very pleased to see the GazettE has broken such stereotypes and boundaries. The number of male fans overseas has increased greatly offering rave reviews. I am not saying it is 'bad' to have just female fans. I am just ...more

The GazettE have always liked to remain underground. They behave well and they ask their fans to do the same; they're generally a really good example of genuinely nice people. Besides that, their music is accessible to all sorts of people, considering the wide range of genres they seem to have mastered from electronic to straight up rock, from attitude-filled rap to really lovely, deep ballads. I'd love to see them open the Olympics because I really feel like they deserve all of the recognition they can get - but... they're also like this precious secret I want to keep to myself. Good luck to the boys!

Visual Kei, by the music of the GazettE, completely deserves a place in 2020 Tokyo Olimpics Opening Ceremonies. This band was capable to move Latin American fans in 2013 with 4 dates as a part of their first World Tour. They bring something from Japan with every single, every album and even in every picture (Visual Kei is... eh, visual) and I'm pretty sure I am not the only person who has found in them one more reason (not the only one) to love Japan and one more reason to learn Japanese.
These guys got the energy, the attitude and the power to move with Japanese rock such an important event.

4 Metallica Metallica is an American Thrash Metal band formed in 1981 . The original lineup was James Hetfield (Vocalist and Rhythm guitarist), Dave Mustaine (Lead Guitar), Lars Ulrich (Drums), Ron McGovney (Bassist). The group came into mainstream from their Self-Titled album and the hit single "Enter Sandman". ...read more.

They should be number one...almost there, come on guys...would you rather an awesome, iconic band (Metallica) or lame-o nobodies that have been clearly votebotted (The Gazette)?

We need a metal band to perform at one of these Olympic events. I admit, X Japan would be more appropriate, as they are at home in Japan, but Metallica are icons in the world. And isn't the Olympics all about uniting the world?

I am saddened by the fact Metallica has fallen to number 14. Add it to the list and get it above a person who does not exist!

Metallica was always a very reputable band, and they are still awesome up to this day.

A group which contains miracle of orange has made people all over the world addicted to them! They are idols from Japan, but they belong to the world, because their miracle in Tokyo Dome will not be forgotten permanent! Though they are not pretty like the models, they gave us fun, they told us never give up, whatever the dream comes true! I love them.

What the 9 women have done really inspired me, and I am very lucky and happy for meeting with them. Even if they don't get together now, I still remember them. This is because each of them have been a part of my soul

This group really can show people's dreams. It likes a beautiful fairytale. If this group can come, I am sure there will be more people around the world will love this Olympics.

I think that these nine girls could show the world that if you have a dream, then just go for it. This is pretty similar to the spirit of olympics, there are many dreamers fighting on the way of achieving the higher record in olympics. So I think these nine girls can express the spirit of olympics to the world in some ways.

6 One Ok Rock One OK Rock, is a Japanese rock band, formed in Tokyo, Japan in 2005. The band currently consists of Takahiro Moriuchi, Toru Yamashita, Ryota Kohama, and Tomoya Kanki.

What do I feel when I hear "ONE OK ROCK"? I'm so excited! Why? Becouse it's the best band I've ever heard. I can't explain this... I love them because of them. My only reason why I like them so much is that I love their characters. Toru, Ryota, Tomoya and Taka are so, so, so natural on a stage. They have amazing contact with their fans, all of the world. I was at ONE OK ROCK's concert in London. It was the best experience in my life. they made awesome performance and awesome show! I think that they can do this again at everyone of their concerts, on the Olympic Games in Tokyo 2020 too. So I think they're the best band to give performance at this time! Do you agree with me, Clockers? MAKE SOME NOISE!

They are an absolutely great rock band and recently, they are starting to get the recognition they deserve not only in Japan and Asia, but also in Europe and America. Their lyrics are so positive and their melodies are not banal. The members are modest and really respect their fans and you can see how grateful they are for being able to live their dream... And, above all, the energy they give at live performances! There is no other band like that in the whole world!

They are the best band ever!

I have NEVER fell in love with a band as much as I have with these guys. They are AMAZING, very inspiring, and genuine Japanese boys that I think will represent Japan in its best form. They spread wonderful messages through great music and extremely powerful performance, and I think that's what the society needs more than just mere meaningless entertainment. Best of luck to them. They're getting the recognition they deserve and I wish nothing more than their success, happiness, and hope they will keep being true to themselves.

7 Gackt Gakuto Oshiro (大城 ガクト Ōshiro Gakuto, born July 4, 1973), better known by his mononymous stage name Gackt, is a Japanese musician, singer, songwriter, record producer and actor. He has been active since 1993, first as the frontman of the short-lived independent band Cains:Feel, and then for ...read more.

In my opinion, it's safe to say Gackt has already become an international icon, whether it is because of his music, his performance in movies such as Bunraku or Moon Child or his involvement in numerous other international activities. He is well known internationally, having fans all over the world, from Japan to the USA, Germany, Romania, Poland etc and back to the other Asian countries such as China or Korea. Even leaving out fangirliness, you can't define Gackt as anything else than a perfect, complete artist. It is not that Gackt deserves it, it is that Japan is lucky to have a representative like him. A man who has been amazing the world with his art for longer than the last decade. Vote for Gackt, the man who has earned it, not the artists that, all due respect, only need the publicity.

GAckt is well respected among all of these artists, has inspired their career even the Gazette with his start with Malice Mizer. It was Malice Mizer who et the tone and still does, and is well respected by the Gazette, and many many other visual K bands. Has been a mentor figure for Miyavi and KAT-TUN. He has worked his whole life and despite health problems and set backs due to his enormous fame he manages to have a positive outlook for the sake of being a role model to anyone who would open their hearts and minds. His hope and urgency to help Japan are only appropriate to allow him to open such a ceremony which will no doubt allow the world to see Japan in a new beginning. He is the most suited representing the new and old generation of all artists in Japan and the true fire in Japanese hearts.

Gackt deserves this more than any newcomer kiddies. He's been around for a long time. He's the inspiration and influence behind the Japanese rock industry.
This man has been a visual kei artist, rockstar, producer, actor, poet, lyricist and way more! He deserves to be right at the top over all the plain artists like Miyavi and The Gazette.

Gackt has an excellent sense of humour and has a very endearing personality. He pulls of being a Samurai way better than anyone else.
He is UNIQUE.

GACKT will be the best choice as the music artist in 2020 TOOC.

Following are the reasons supporting my point of view:

1. GACKT is a gentle man with international perspective & good at English. Meanwhile, he has made effort to promote Japan's culture. It's a good chance to marketing Japan.

2. GACKT dose excellent work in several fields of sports. He will be the best image as not only music artist but sportsman!

3. GACKT is a super star! Inviting him as the music artist will bring the economic benefits for Japan!

8 KAT-TUN

KAT-TUN is not perfect in dance, because they are KAT-TUN
KAT-TUN's member-ai is not your so all-perfect-I-Love-You to one another, because they don't want to cheapen their relationship
KAT-TUN's voices are not the best yet they're indeed improving, Yuuki No Hana and Sweet Chain are indeed the facts

KAT-TUN is only one, and I'm proud to be one of their not perfect fans.
Well, because nobody's perfect, you know?

KAT-TUN have a special aura that can surely catch all the attention. They can do both resplendent performances and fresh and encouraging ones. KAT-TUN can be the representative of individuals who strive with all their might for things they wanna protect and of a group which reaches out for higher goals even at the face of frustration that probably other groups or people would find difficult to get over. After what they've been through, they have now grown to a very mature group of idols who give strength and power to their fans, to all the people who have confusions and concerns about the unpredictable future. They will always be there, telling you that everything's gonna be okay. Because they've been there. Because they've handled with difficulties that are way out of our imagination. It's been hard for me to watch them fall down but in the meantime delighted to see them stand up again. Fans like me couldn't do much for them. But this time, it's on the discretion of us! We can ...more

KAT-TUN is unique. The boys are strong and had to go through a lot and they're still here for us, showing us their smiles and making Hyphens happy.
They are talented, their songs are different and amazing, and even though they may not be the best at dancing, they' are perfect in their own way.
The members' friendship may seem not as strong as other groups, but yes, it is strong. And they don't have to be all lovely towards each other all the time to prove that.
I love KAT-TUN and I'm proud of being a part of their big family.
I will Keep the Faith, hoping for these boys to be the chosen ones

They've been through quite a lot in the recent years, with the dropping out of two members and all, and yet they are doing great and moving on into new terrains. They may not be the best at singing or dancing, but each one of them has his own talents and strengths, and they all come together to give a really unique group that's not just your usual face-only idol groups. It's time to give them the opportunity to prove that they can do as well as, or even better than, all those big shots out there!

9 L'Arc-en-Ciel L'Arc-en-Ciel is a Japanese rock band, founded in Osaka in 1991. With a reported 40 million records sold, they were the first Japanese act to headline at Madison Square Garden.

They've been around for over 20 years now. They've played some of the biggest venues in the world, including London's O2, Japan's National Stadium, and headlined Madison Square Garden in NYC. They've got a variety of songs and they cover all sorts of genres and types. Their music is beautiful and amazing and have already written songs for the Olympics, specifically the 2010 Olympics for which they created the song "BLESS". Overall, they're the best band to play at the 2020 Opening Ceremonies.

The best rock band Japan has ever produced. Sold out shows, world tours, pulled off an intense night at Madison square garden, beautiful beautiful lyrics and experience to top that off.

There isn't a better band to represent Japan's versatility and extent of music. From contemporary pop to electro, heart rending ballads, strong beats, to well-worn rock. L'Arc~en~Ciel has done it all and are still doing it all!

Plus plus plus, we all get to hear hyde voice open the show. So why not?

Olympics or not, Laruku are my undisputed kings.

They're the best to show to the world what Japanese bands can do. Also L'Arc~en~Ciel is the band that has more fans overseas, and for me (and many fans) is the emblematic band of Japan. They are one of the few bands who have had the privilege of playing in National Stadium (3 times). For this and many reasons they are the ones who should play in the Olympics. No one will do it better than they!

The coolest guys ever! They are admired locally and adored by the fans worldwide. Their music is one of the best in the world! and no words can describe how their music beautifully breaks barriers language, race, etc . 2020 Olympics will be another great venue for L'Arc en Ciel to showcase their passion and grace everyone with another ultimate performance. They have filled in National Stadium twice and performed there thrice so there's no doubt that having them on the opening ceremony will surely fill those stadium seats easily no sweat! while overseas fans will ensure we get to watch it live via satellite! Don't think twice! Please gave L'Arc en Ciel on the 2020 Olympics opening ceremony!

10 Rin and Len Kagamine

I cried a lot when I listened to Rin and Len's songs, such as the Story of Evil, the Synchronicity series, Soleil,...Their songs can almost reach the bottom of my heart, they showed me the love they gave for each other in each of their songs, the huge connection between siblings. I hope Rin and Len can perform at the Olympic 2020, my favorite twins.

Rin and Len is my most favorite vocaloid. Thank to Rin and Len, I've known about vocaloid. They've lead me to vocaloid. I love their song very much. Both the mean and the sound. Beside, they're very cute. Such a cute twin. their song reach the bottom of my heart. No matter what happen, they will never stay apart. I think the producer should create more song, live show and treat them more better. Miku have a lot of version, like: sakura miku, snow miku,.. But not the Kagamine twins. I wonder why. It's not fair. I hope I can see more their live show and hear more their new song.

I am a Chinese. My foreign language is not very good. I really like them. I only heard about Miku when I was little, but then I saw Miku's concert. Those two yellow things are really cute. But at that time, I was young and I didn't know V, so I couldn't find Rin Len by browser. A few years later, I saw a few pictures on the Internet, very lovely pictures, I asked my brother who is above this, my brother said RIN and Len, since then I have liked them. Their singing is by no means worse than Miku, and I hope that RIN and Len will be able to appear with Miku at the opening ceremony of the Games. That's enough.

Rin and Len are not appendages to miku. They're important to me.They have a lot of songs that are not inferior to miku. Like lost one's cry, how to world conquest. They sang out my heart so that they had more place in my heart than miku. VOCALOID doesn't just have one miku. But at every concert, they have very few songs, and I don't think it's fair. In the future of 17 years of magic, miku came out to thank you, but why didn't kagamine Rin Len say thank you in 18 years? Besides, there are so many versions of miku, but how many are kagamine Rin Len? If they can sing on that stage this time, I believe more people will like them, know them, and officials will pay more attention to them.

The Contenders
11 AAA

AAA song is many good songs. You listen AAA song one more please. Many good song!

AAA (with special remembrance of Ito Chiaki) is simply the BEST!

They always have the foremost performances; beautiful strong vocals with no lip-sync (unlike most of the artists/groups nowadays) while dancing with all the amazing vibes. No exaggeration, AAA is definitely one of the true talented performers you can find in Japan (or probably even the whole world).

2020 Tokyo Olympics should be honored and proud to have AAA as the Japan artists representative to perform for their opening ceremonies. A big chance to show the world what Japanese true artists are made of.

The AAA
Attack All Around
... I challenge it about all...
Is the abbreviation of the meaning to say.
Like these words, the AAA continues challenging various things.
I think that I get over it in various difficulty, and the Olympics challenges various things.
I think that I give spirit, courage, in addition, various things at the same time to be able to contribute an absolutely good performance, a song to all of you if it is AAA.

AAA is great singer and dancer!

12 X Japan X Japan is a Japanese heavy metal band from Chiba, formed in 1982 by drummer Yoshiki and lead vocalist Toshi.

What can I say about X - Japan? There are many things going around my mind when I think about this amazing band and there long history and it's a really rich history X - Japan has. They're in Japan as famous as the Rolling Stones in America and in some reports the band even be compared to them and also to the legendary band Queen and that really machtes, 'cause also X - Japan already created their own legend and they still write it on.
I admire the huge collection of genres X - Japan puts together in their music. All of the them are fantastic musicians and as well abouve all wonderful persons. Every time when I listen to X - Japan I feel a strong connection to their music and to each member. They're really unique in the way they are and how ever X - Japan is changing it's still X.
Yoshiki - san once said that how X - Japan is now is not what hide - san and he expected how it gonna be but it's a X again. And that's the case. How ever things are going the guys never give up at ...more

Have to be X-Japan, they are the parents of Visual Kei they made, they invented the Jrock that we know today. They lost Hide, one of the most talented musicians in Japan and can be amazing a tribute on the olympics, they have Yoshiki maybe the most talented one working on big productions around the world, all people respect, they have Hyms like "Forever Love" that ALL WORLD will understand because they mixed English, they are "The rolling stones/Beatles" of Japan, they have more than 30 years of history, and long ETC...
Please no idols, they are not the Identity of Japan (thanks God)

X - Japan is Japans biggest band with international success. I suppose there is no other band who is that famose in Japan and maybe also around the world like X - Japan.
For many people X - Japan is epitomizes Japanese rock music and they're even very respected by many very well known international artists and bands.
Songs like Forever Love, Endless Rain, Jade, Born to be Free and many other songs are known all around the world and with their unique style they give Japanese music a very new face.
With not only producing in Japanese but in English as well their songs reaches a very large scale of people
And not to forget that YOSHIKI san is already a living legend, the iconic man of X - Japan, who even played for the Japanese emperor.
I think there is no other Japanese band, with a such long and moving history like X - Japan has. There where so many tragedies but at least X - Japan always got reborn like a phoenix from ashes. But also X - Japan has many happy moments and ...more

The Vision of these 2020 Games has three core concepts:
"Striving for your personal best (Achieving Personal Best)"
"Accepting one another (Unity in Diversity)"
"Passing on Legacy for the future (Connecting to Tomorrow)"

X-Japan is perfect example of these concepts through their perseverance and resurrection. Their storied past and influence on the next generation(s) can not be denied. Not only do they pass on their music but also offer a positive and inspirational message to the people of Japan and the international community.
X-Japan performing in these Games would be an honour that they so rightfully deserve and have earned.

13 Iron Maiden Iron Maiden are an English Heavy Metal band formed in Leyton, East London, in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris. The most critically acclaimed period for the band was from 1983-1989. With vocalist Bruce Dickinson, bassist Steve Harris, lead guitarist Dave Murray, rhythm guitarist Adrian ...read more.

Who wouldn't want to see Britain's best band preform live during the opening ceremony of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Summer Games?

Exactly.

The same comment goes here as it did for Metallica. They are a band fir the world.

We need more metal into the mainstream.

That would be awesome.

14 NEWS

They've represented Japan in many sports events. They have a good relationship. They make a great team. They're good, amazing and awesome. They sing and dance well. They are positive.

They fell down twice but they never give up. They lost 5 member yet they fought for their dreams. They stood up for themselves and for their fans. They love their fans so much as much the fans love them. They have a big heart. They always cheer me up. NEWS makes me happy, Makes the world happier.

NEWS is the most suitable group to perform at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremonies.

1. They were grouped to promote the Women's World Cup of Volleyball Championships at 2003. After that, they never stop to promote these Sport events. Their song "World Quest" is the theme song of FIFA Club World Cup Japan 2012. The sporty image of NEWS had already built. Therefore, they are the most suitable group to perform in the opening ceremony and promote Tokyo Olympic.

2. The name of NEWS is a contraction of North, East, West and South, signifying that the group arrives from all points of the compass. Since Olympic game is a game for all people in the world, including the people form North, East, West and South. The goal of Olympic game is to unity people all over the world. our group, NEWS is the most suitable one to represent this meaning.

3. NEWS does not only active in Japan, they had concert in Taiwan. Moreover, their sub-group, TEGOMASU had even rush out of Asia. ...more

This band believes that they deserve more exposure and promote the art of expressiveness and creativity in their music. From different individual representations to a unified goal as a group, this band deserves and is ready to conquer the world with their eargasmic performances in front of billions to trillions of watchers and listeners across the world. So why not choosing this band in grooming to the international stage to inspire and encourage people from different ages with their full package? I strongly voted for this band because of my admiration in their determination and hardwork... So this band strongly deserves to perform in this 2020 olympics and wish all the best.

Firstly, NEWS has experience in this type of event! They sing songs especially for these occasions. For example: NEWS NIPPON or WORLD QUEST

Secondly, They are improving every year and get throw in their career as idol even when NEWS lost members and there was doubtful their came back.

Thirdly, NEWS should be an example for everyone because they don't give up!

Finally, In my opinion they have energetic songs to cheer up athletic teams. I can feel it and I'm not Japanese! And also I think they deserve it

15 Babymetal Babymetal is a Japanese metal idol band. Their line-up consists of Suzuka Nakamoto as "Su-metal", Yui Mizuno as "Yuimetal", and Moa Kikuchi as "Moametal".

As a Japanese music fan who bought my first record in early 70's, I think that Babymetal is No1 Japanese band by far in terms of quality of music and stage performance. If they don't play on the big stage like the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympic 2020, people of all over the world will miss the lifetime opportunity to know just how special Babymetal is.

Babymetal is simply the best live performance you can get. They have so much energy, great music, great choriography and have a large fan base the world over. Plus several of their songs would work perfectly for the Olympics. Babymetal also has a large appeal to many different age groups and all genders.

In 2020, they will be the most famous Japanese band in the world!
And I would recommend Japanese Olympic Committee that Olympic Game must be performed by musicians with 'high-quality' as Japanese Representatives rather than just popular idols in Japan.

They already bring in people from all over the world together. They already represent this olympic idea and quality to unity people from all over the world and therefore Babymetal is idealy suited to perform at the olympics opening ceremony.

16 Miyavi Takamasa Ishihara, better known by his stage name Miyavi, is a Japanese singer-songwriter, guitarist, record producer and actor. He is known for his finger-slapping style of playing a guitar.

Miyavi is becoming more and more of an INTERNATIONAL icon. He doesn't just tour Asia like most Johnny's, isn't some program like Vocaloids. He is a REAL human being and is incredibly considerate (the man once gave me tea while waiting in line on the freezing streets of San Francisco at 3am! ). He and his management go out of their way to do WORLD TOURS (and yes, by WORLD TOUR, I mean they make sure to stop by the USA for concerts, not just the airports like the GazettE. That goes a LONG way in my book).
He's been filming a movie in Hollywood, people from MANY other countries will at least recognize him from that if not his music. Let's put someone on the Olympic map that will have a better chance at being recognized! More likely to please audiences of all countries than anyone! And yes, with all due respect, maybe even more so than Gackt.
I'm a fan of all of these artists that I've mentioned (minus vocaloid), but Miyavi is by far the most deserving! He has NEVER failed to do his ...more

Why isn't our SAMURAI GUITARIST higher on the list?!
He's the first Japanese musician who can pride himself with so many succesful consecutive world tours and he is one of the pioneers who brought the Japanese music industry closer to the rest of the world.
Furthermore, his music unites people from all over the world, as he teaches us to go beyond race, gender, generation, nation, language, history, religion, and to BE ONE. I think that goes perfectly with the atmosphere at the Olympics. Not to mention his ability to completely blow people away with his insane guitar playing and his versatility of style.

Miyavi this is a true awesome star. He is my idol because it seems to be enjoying what he does and he radiates love for everybody. He's not only great people, but do you think a country is smaller than mine and in Hungary as well as the love pass.

Miyavi is the total package. He is a wonderful musician, entertainer, very personable, and genuine. Miyavi's music appeals to a broad range of interests and tastes, and he is very well spoken, so he can MC too. I think he would be great in the opening ceremony.

17 Megadeth Megadeth is an American thrash metal band from Los Angeles, California. Megadeth was formed in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine was fired from Metallica. They have released 15 studio albums to date, and have gone through many lineup changes, with Dave ...read more.

Megadeth, Maiden, Metallica and X japan at the show. However, it happens to be cursed to never happen as computer programs designed to be fake people are now more popular than real people. Metal is not the devil's music, proven by more being Catholic, but it sure was cursed by him.

This would be absolutely amazing. I hope this happens!

18 Daichi Miura

What is this vote for? Does everyone really understand what this vote mean? Yes, I willl absolutely vote the number 1 entertainer Daichi Miura here. His perform is perfect and it gives us lots of surprising. Why don't you let us share his fantastic performance with all the people in the world at the Tokyo Olympic!

Daichi is known as Japanese Michael Jackson, but he is not a mimic. His choreography shows much originality, and he is talented for both of singing and dancing. One sight of his performance catch and keep atracting our hearts. Much more people in the world should watch his performance! Search his name in youtube immediately, if you've never watched it.

His is the real singer and should be the perfect person to perform in Olympic. I can't think of anybody else who can be more suitable than him.

He is called Japanese Michael Jackson. He is strongly affected by him and becomes splendid entertainer. He should be able to attract people of the world like that superstar on the stage called Tokyo OLYMPIC.

19 KAITO KAITO is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Yamaha Corporation using their new Vocaloid singing synthesizer technology under the codename of "Taro".

I'm a Chinese, I don't know Japanese and I only know a little English, but I just love Kaito. I have to study hard, do a lot homework, and be criticized by my parents and teachers almost every day. I feel tired. But after a day's study, I usually turn on the music software on my mobile phone to listen to Kaito's music, and he can make me feel better. It's the best time in the day. In a word, I love Kaito and his music.

I love KAITO. Not many people seem to like him because his voice is hard to deal with, but it's beautiful if you get it right. In his voice, you can feel emotion, just like any other person. I feel his voice is even more emotional than most of the vocaloids.

KAITO is like a god in my world! Since I listened his song, I fell in love with him immediately! His voice is so soft that I can't calm down whenever I heard it. Although he has few supporters, I am still very happy that he does such a high ranking.

Kaito is great! Not only his voice and appearance, but his story. Although his first sell is not successful, he gains popularity in the end! I think his experience is very touching, it can encourage people to not give up in Olympic games.

20 Megurine Luka Megurine Luka is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media, headquartered in Sapporo, Japan.

She's great, yes, but I feel like it's hard for her to get a crowd hyped. I love any duets she does with other vocaloids, but the only song I like with that is JUST her is Luka Luka Night Fever. Sure it's just me, but I feel like I should enjoy more her singles more than her collabs. She can't get a crowd excited like Miku, Gumi, or the Kagamine twins.

LUKA-SAMA! You MUST sing in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics! Luka-sama, you have the greatest voice out of all vocaloids! Luka-sama is a goddess!

She can sing in english with better pronunciation and clearance. She has a soothing mature voice which makes her sound like a rel human being which people will like who're watching world-wide.

She HAS to sing! I think at least some vocaloids have to sing. It will be really original to see virtual singers instead of real ones. Luka senpai, it will be AMAZING to see you singing in the olympics!

She is best known for her role as Cat Valentine on the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious and its spin-off show Sam & Cat. ...read more.

It's about representing Japan, not China. Even then, I don't get how she represents China.

Although I am a Chinese girl, but I love every song that Ariana Grand sang.

She has so many hits to sing. She'd be perfect for this.

She has a good voice

22 Gumi GUMI is a female Vocaloid created by Internet Co., Ltd. She is the most popular non-Crypton Vocaloid of all time. She is voiced by Megumi Nakajima.

I accidentally voted for Rin and Len caus I didn't think Gumi would be on here.
I LOVE GUMI!
Echo, Again, Wildfire, and a duet she did with Miku (I forgot what it was called), and more! She is so awesome.
I get she's just a program but the voice and music the creaters are able to produce is stunning! Besides, I feel like everybody knows Vocaloids or have at least seen them. Any of them would be great at representing Japan, but Gumi would be best.

I love GUMI so much, and everyone practically knows who Miku is, so why not show them something new? Plus she is Bilingual so she can sing Japanese and English for their audience! I think she would be a great choice!

Please vote for GUMI 555 GUMI is my favorite virtual singer. She is really beautiful and her voice is very good! Believe me, if you listen to her songs, you'll fall in love with her. I hope she can enter the Tokyo Olympic Games in 2020!

She has a lovely voice, she can sing every song and it's ALWAYS beautiful so she must sing in the tokyo olympics!

As of right now, this is the highest ranking option that isn't being votebotted. Therefore, it gets my vote because I HATE that this list is so obviously rigged.

They always make amazing concerts. Do you remember 2012 London Olympic? That was awesome by Coldplay.

Yes! This would be awesome! Coldplay deserve to be on the world stage, and here is there chance.

I think Coldplay is really cool, their songs are wonderful!

Their songs are amazing and they should really get to perform!

I really really want this to happen! T_T

We need to make this happen!

25 Tomohisa Yamashita

He speaks real good English. In such an international great event, an idol who is able to speak bilingual languages is really important, showing that Japanese singer is not only capable in singing and dancing ( which should be the basic requirement), but also able to spread Japanese culture, to exchange cultural views!

What is more, he is popular as he has been acting in different dramas. Dramas are always essential in letting people in other countries to start to be interested in Japan culture.

Yamapi is an all rounded idol, who has the name to perform in such an international event for sure!

He has a lot of fans all over the world. He is a nice idol, and he always conveys positive energy to us!

His spoken English is pretty good.

English is really good.

First of all, he is famous as well as he has a huge number of fans. Secondly, in my opinion, all his experience can represent the spirit of Olympics. He has been working hard since he was 11 and never give up and he did very very well. So in my heart, he is a perfect idol who can give the young power and bring us hope. Also his stories encourage people to move on! Last but not least, Yama P is an internationlised celebrity. He has many English songs and he also made some T.V. programs in USA. We all know that his English is good. Especially, his pronunciation is pretty much standard. And Olympic as a whole world sports event, a celebrity who are internationalised is important. So I support Yama P. Also I think every his sweeties will support him! Love You, Yama P!
