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.

I love Arashi

4 Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku Hatsune Miku, sometimes referred to as Miku Hatsune, is a humanoid persona voiced by a singing synthesizer application developed by Crypton Future Media.

Far beyond a mere music artist, Miku is an icon of global cooperation, understanding, and collaboration. The Olympics should be honoured to have her grace their stage.

Miku brings everyone together, for love of music, art, and life itself. I always have been amazed at the revolutionary unity which she created, bringing us all together, and then leading us into the future.

That is why I'm a Vocaloid fan. And Miku started it all.

Without a doubt, Miku is the next generation of rock, pop, any kind of musical styled star with no boundaries. And her popularity is growing every hour throughout the world. Miku is pure love, pure artistic masterpiece of an exsistance that ever graced this planet. Miku brings nothing but peace and love for her fans that she embraces all over the world.

Miku!

5 One Ok Rock One Ok Rock

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 the best band ever!

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!

6 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!

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.

I definitely believe that he will make us EXCITE by his such a wonderful performance at Tokyo Olympics 2020!

Yes Love (^0^)

7 The Gazette 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.

In mi opinion, it is the best way for opening c: Russian girls love the GazettE

The GazettE have always been able to understand me and they have touched my heart as I know they have touched many others around the world. They are loved and adored by their fans as they feel the same way for us and I'd love for them to have the chance to be recognized for their hard work and dedication to their music and for the world to be able to hear them play their beautiful music at the Olympics! We are all Sixth Guns and we love the GazettE! GazeRock Is Not Dead!

Even if it isn't that big, Visual Kei is still a part of Japan's culture. And I think GazettE is a great example of this worldwide, so it's only natural they would perform~! Also I really would love to see them like, come on..

Man I love their articals they are so enjoyable to read. Would love it if they preformed at the olympics. - xxx69lilaussy96xxx

8 L'Arc-en-Ciel 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'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 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'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.

It's a very great band

In addition to its excellent temperament, the positive image of the enthusiastic public good, but also with his professional performing arts literacy, solid music skills, as well as his professionalism is closely related.

He is number one for all the time..

He constantly challenges himself and tries to surpass it.

Professionalism, Passionate performance on every level, Plausible appearance make Kim Hyun Joong the number one artist worthy of this honor

12 Tomohisa Yamashita

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

I think Tokyo Sinfonetta would be an amazing song to open the Tokyo Olympics with

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!

I LOVE HIM.THAT IS ENOUGH.

13 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?

Kattun deserves to be there!

They are powerful, they are young. they show you the hope, they can tell you what is persistence.
Moreover,kame and ueda are good at baseball and boxing, how qualified!

KAT-TUN is not perfect,but they sound can bring power and hope to people.
Their songs are very good!
Whether it is dynamic song or lyric song.
And they also have their own favorite sport.
Kamenashi likes baseball
Ueda loves boxing
Nakamaru likes football
They are the best in my heart.
I am hyphen (fan name)
I love KAT-TUN forever

15 Kanjani Eight

Three reasons why I chose Kanjani8:
1. Kanjani8 - amazing music group that can play music of different directions.
2. First, in Kanjani8 there is a spirit of fight. Because the group has overcome many obstacles before becoming a popular band. Secondly, the band members have a very strong bond with each other and with the fans ( fans from around the world - for example, I'm from Russia ). The Olympic Games are an honest wrestling. The Olympic Games are an event which unites the whole world. Therefore, I think, Kanjani8 are worthy to sing at opening of the Olympic Games.
3. 3. Besides the aforesaid, Kanjani8 have one more indisputable advantage - participants of group play musical instruments during performances.

Kanjani Eight has great traits that no other artist or group has. They're funny, they're cool, they're hot, and they have the power to give everyone a good feeling. If, no, when they perform at the 2020 Olympics, I know they will no doubt surprise everyone. They won't let us down. What Japan needs is something to be happy about. These guys will show us Japan's true energy.

Kanjani Eight is Japanese idol group.
Their song has power to work as all people well.
Surely I heap up OLYMPIC and will give players courage.
I am convinced that even foreign people can enjoy it.
There is a lot of conveyed thought simply because it is them who came through a painful thing.
I want all of you to listen to their song by all means.
I am convinced that even foreign people can enjoy it.

They are cool brilliant

17 Tohoshinki

Tohoshinki is the excellent group in Japan. They started their music career in Japan in 2005 and get lots of words of praise in Japan. They have made many wonderful albums and the song"purple line"get the first of the Oricon board when it came out. They held the 4th live tour in Tokyo Dome on June 25th in 2009. It made a great success for Tohoshinki and the Bigeast (their Japanese fans). They held the concert with 150000 audience in NISSAN stadium on August in 2013. Tohoshinki is the first Korean group who can sing songs on the stage of NISSAN stadium. It really makes a great success and increase the position of Tohoshinki in Japan. So I think Tohoshinki is very suitable for this important performance.

Tohoshiki is definitely popular in Japan, among Asia and around the world. Far before in 2003 or so, Tohoshinki had represented Korea to sing the theme song for Korean World Cup. And different with other idols, most fans of Tohoshinki are 30~40 years old, who will definitely support and pay great attention to the Tokyo Olympic celebration. They can be considered as the most successful foreign pop star in Japan ever. So please give the two gorgeous boys a life once chance to perform on it.

They are the king of the stage performace, they are always work very hard although they are already in the top. I love their songs and dancing, they always give us energy, they are not only my idol but also my life mentor. They already company with each other for ten years, I love them just like they love each other.

18 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.

There is no reason why anyone should dislike the adorable twins.. 2 always make a better choreography - a better performance.

Honestly vocaloid isn't always just about Miku, I just think that Len and Rin should get some attention as well as the other vocaloids.

19 KinKi Kids

They are artists that can be the songs so well, sing with emotion and even sings a song difficult.

KinKi Kids use their beautiful voice show their love to the world in the song Family~ hitotsuninarukoto. They write some of the famous songs, including the song above, by themselves. Their power in the live concert make many people impressed. Also, the band they use in their concert, Domoto Family Band, can perform the music in high quality. We should not miss the chance to see the live of KinKi Kids and the Domoto Family Band!

The duet is artists, singer-song-writer, musician, as well as stage performer. Their music concepts (lyrics, melody, as well as the arrangements) are global and the duet is able to give a not-so-typical spark to the ceremony with their live band performing capability. Not the least to mention is that they are experienced in giving performance to satisfy both visual and soundings.

My favorite singer.

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

They are one of the most popular Japanese band around the world. Their leader-yoshiki even have performed for the king of Japan. Their rock obviously can make everyone exciting ~

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)

You know Slash is better than Hide, no doubt. Hell, Eddie Van Halen is better than this hack - LedZepp81

X Japan is history, is emotion, is my life!

I have been in loved with X-Japan for 5 years.Their songs are fall of power and usually give me energy.

25 SMAP

They are Japan's beloved musician group, loved by all the generation, which in itself is a miracle. They have sung a lot of touching pieces of music so far, not only love song, but also a song that asks people to love each other and thank each other, really appealing to any generations. They also are a real entertainer group, too, appearring in various kinds of variety shows. Their activities of that kind and highly-reputated background in acting made them so well-known to the T.V. and drama watchers. Their activities has long been always a popular topic in daily life of ordinary Japanese people and this phenopenon reflects their popularity. Smap are getting more publicity than any other musicians and any other celebrities, I bet. They also have abilities to do as required to and those to do more than required. They are actually appropriate for a role of representative of this nation. That's why I want SMAP to perform at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremonies!

I love SMAP! I love your cute and cool songs.

They are a wonderful music act in Japan. They made a history as the ideal performing group in Japan. They are popular as entertainers for more than 25 years. They are so talented, funny, can sing, dance, and are attractive. They can collect a wide variety of people from all ages. Throughout their career, they have met a wide variety of celebrities from all over the world. They are a good representative of Japan.

Love them Forever

27 Gackt Gackt

National anthem in the performance of Gackt is the best in the world

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 is the greatest man in my opinion! What is worthy of attention and respect. His Outlook on life and creativity are understandable to people of any nationality. He is the best candidate for this place!

GACKT is great!

29 Hiroshi Kamiya

No word can describe the beauty and tenderness of his voice; no word can describe his amazing voice-acting skills. And what attracted me even more are his charisma, his amiable personality, his perseverance, and his professional dedication. He works long hours everyday and often has only 5 hours of sleep, but his hard-work pays off. He is able to bring out the best of best voice-acting skills in every unique character he voices, and master the emotion and personality of each character, for example, Natsume Takeshi from Natsume Yuujinchou, Orihara Izaya from DuRaRaRa, and Levi from Attack on Titan. Although he describes himself as quiet and passive, he is always bright, energetic, talkative, and the center of attention in front of the audience during seiyuu events, and at every seiyuu award ceremony he went to, he has said that he is and will be a life-long voice actor. I am becoming more and more addicted to his voice that I can't go to sleep without listening to his songs. He is ...more

His voice is the tender wind, his smile is the shining sunshine, his characteristic which encourages us going forward without bewilderment and his attitude towards work and life give us much energy to our daily life. From the animation, I have known kamiya san, but, from kamiya san, I have known the beautiful word. when I feel leisure, sad, happy or even exhausted, I am inclined to listen the songs sung by kamiya san, such as always kissing you, everlasting and so on. From all of his songs, my favorite song is tomorrow's baton, which inspires a lot when I have met the difficulties and barrier. so I hope kamiya san can attend the wonderful event. TO kamiya san, you have have already lived in our heart, in our life. Thank you.

His smile which can heal people's hearts just likes the sunshine, warm and dazzling, and I believe it has power to make friends from all over the world feel happy.

I love his voice and his smile.

31 Scandal (Japan)

The representative of Japan's girl bands! No, not girl idol groups, we are talking about an all-female band that plays instruments for real.

They are all very talented, and I love to see them in the Olympics in 2020. They are very good live, some even said they're so powerful and loud in person, more than what is presented in the recorded live version.

If that happens, I'd definitely book a ticket to Japan even a year before the events.

These girls are great musicians, and all four have great stage presence. They have a very personal sound, and great song of varied style. Their albums are also progressively better and interesting. I am a Norwegian musician who has followed these girls since 2008. This is in my opinion the biggest chance Japan has for a global success band! Certainly the best all girl band since the Bangles or the Runaways, and can give any guy band a run for their money too. Please! They should be in any Olympic show!

Awesome band. Kicks ass. Shows what Japan has to offer.

33 Miyavi Miyavi

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 is constantly sending us a message that no mather what nationality, skin color, age, religion you are music unite us all and that's also what Olympics are partially about so he's the one that should perform there and obviously ROCK THE WHOLE WORLD OUT!

He is cool but also full of passion. I love him very much!

When I listen to their music I want to run, to move, to scream, to be happy, feels like everything is poossible. But there are also beautiful and calm compositions which supports you in difficult times and that is feels great! I think this band most of all anothers deserve to perform on the olympics!

37 Nogizaka46

Nogizaka's member is very cute and beautiful!

As we all know, the Nogizaka 46 group is one of the most famous idol group in Japan. Not only known by the native people but also enjoy great prestige in the world. They spread the charm and fashion of Japan to the foreigners who gather to the Tokyo all around the world. Because of their beauty and talent show, it is efficiently that Japan government broadcast the Arts and Humanities to the athletes, audience, and leaders of other nations and organizations of course. As for me, a foreign fans came from the PRC, the reason why I would like to spend my time on recommendation is that everyone will be irresistibly attracted by their performance and enthusiasm. There is no doubt that the Nogizaka 46 Group should attend the opening ceremony in 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. With the greatest expectation and fantasy, we would take delight in seeing one of the brightest star in Japan area shining in the Olympic Main Stadium. Truly appreciated.

Nogizaka is the best idol group in Japan.

Nogizaka46!

38 Sid

In my opinion SID is one of the best bands of Japan. They have a lot of energy, and their music is amazing. I prefer this band for the Olympic games performing.

The most amazing band ever, I have been a fan for almost two years now and I can still listen to them for hours at a time their music is deep and soul shatteringly beautiful and they deserve to win this because they have worked so hard to get to where they are now so lets vote for SID!

Has different rhythms and many seem to me like foreigners like me, excellent music and voice

Literally the best japanese band, + Mao's voice is too pure

They are undoubtedly one of the Japanese groups with the best singing and dancing skills. Their performances have the ability to touch the heart of every audience. They have also been representing Japan in various diplomatic occasions and have a very positive image.

Awesome team! They had a magic can touches and connects any audiences when the music ringing in Olympics stage :) I looking forward that timing while cray cray for me!

They try very hard to be singers and let the world see their performance and effort!

40 Oldcodex

OldCodex has and excellent performance! They'll be great at an Opening Ceremony!

Their music is amazing! I would love for them to be there! (I don't live in Japan, but nonetheless they're amazing! )

I think Ta_2 definitely have the power to make the whole stadium heat up just by his body language. Yorke's paintings are amazing. I am sure foreigners will enjoy oldcodex's unique performance as it fuses music with graffiti which there are not a lot of other bands do in Japan. Plus, oldcodex is a true band, not an idol group. This is very important and I think in Japan there are loads of idol groups but not a lot of true bands. Oldcodex is a fairly new band, but I think it is very impressive how they make the band successful is such a little time. Moreover, they have songs in English too,e.G. cold hands which is good for foreigners. I think the Japan government should give them a chance as we need new bands in Japan. This will be a very good chance for them to soar up. I love oldcodex and I love Ta_2, I think they surely deserve a place in 2020.

Their music and performance are really cool.Their energy can make everyone falls in they music world.

41 Nana Mizuki

I love your songs of anime and on live on youtube you are the one sing for the Olympiics opening ceremonies and ending ceremonies everybody loves you P.s I'm fan of your songs and your songs on my ipod

I like her enthusiasm and her powerful voice, so I think she can absolutely make OLYMPICS a divine event. Besides, Japanese animation is highly symbolic to Japan. Mizuki Nana, as a anime artist, can therefore make OLYMPICS in Tokyo much more featured and distinguishable. I can not wait to see her standing on the wonderful stage and singing with all her energy.

She has her struggle in the industry but her never give up spirit make her have great achievements today. It really does come in tail to what the Olympics are.

Try your best,nana!

42 Perfume

I really think perfume should be in the Olympics. They sing perfect. The way they move to the beat is awesome and they're young. Also very popular in japan right now. And over all they a too cute!

Because they represent the futuristic style and are awesome they would put on the best show

Perfume have lots of foreign fans. I think they are more appropriate than some other male artist. Owing to cultural shock, most foreigners don't like those male artist at all. The performance of Perfume is futuristic, can stand for Japanese technology. I'm not Japanese, but my friends and I like Perfume very much!

Lighting & Music Synchronization - a good atmosphere & interactive to ceremony audience - that can be provided by Perfume

43 fripSide

FripSide is my favorite band. Once I hear their music I will leave all my annoyance behind. So, Let's vote for fripSide, I really hope that they can perform at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremony.

The first song of fripSide I've listened is late in autumn. From then on I fell in love with this band. In my mind Sat is a genius composer and nanjo's voice touched me again and again. I really hope that fripSide can perform on the Olympics Opening Ceremony. I'll always love fripSide!

To my surprise I voted for fripSide instead of Mai Kuraki! Can I vote for both of them?!?! Mai-K is absolutely more experienced than Yoshino and I wanted her to perform, too BUT... From this situation fS is more likely to perform? I did not see Mai in the top 90... If they could perform at the 2020 TOOC, it would be an awesome experience for them. (Did I use 'awesome' correctly? )

I love fripSide!

45 Ayumi Hamasaki

She is the first Japanese single photo on Time!

I think that Ayu can make us happily!

Ayumi Hamasaki is the most famous Japanese singer in other countries, the Olympic games is international, so we need a singer who all people know her and love her, some artists are popular in Japan but other countries people don't know them, so Ayumi Hamasaki as the most popular Japanese artist is suitable

No doubt she will appear.

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.

However, I prefer Rin and Len but maybe Luka should have a chance

Come on!

50 Kumi Koda

Koda Kumi is simply the queen of live. Not only her voice is great, but she can sing in many registers, and her performances during the past years have been really great. Furthermore, she can sing a lot of different music styles, from sweet pop, to sexy pop and even rock. I bet she would make the best performance ever!

Because she's the QUEEN OF LIVE! You need to see her shows to know how to do a big performance!

Kumi always puts on an amazing energetic performance, which is why she was chosen to perform at the 2011 MAMA awards, and is known worldwide for her more western sound, which has generated a lot of western fans! I believe her music is the type of music that will be enjoyed by people watching the world over, her performance will entertain the world and show how passionate JPOP can be! Please choose Kumi!

QUEEN of LIVE!
