Music Artists You'd Like to Perform at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Opening Ceremonies

The Contenders: Page 2

21 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.

Japan is much more than just idol groups! SCANDAL should be the top all girls band that can represent Japanese music other than idol stuff

26 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!

Nakata Yasutaka and MIKIKO, and then?

28 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

Their songs are so fantastic and meaningful.
Differing from idol group,all the lyrics and the rhythm is their own. They build up a brand-new world for my life.

29 Alice Nine

I definitely think that Alice Nine would be a great choice for the Olympics because they have that sort of energy they are most well known for in their music and on stage. Having that same energy at the Olympics would definitely fire things up!

Alice Nine are the epitome of a ray of sunshine. I can't see anyone else performing as much as them because no matter what the song, they can put smiles on peoples faces. Their music is an array of colors from rock to ballad to even a bit of pop. They are well worth the vote and deserve to be center stage to show the world what they've got!

It would be a great chance if Alice Nine gets to perform to the Olympics. They are one of the best artist in today's music industry. They are a versatile band and their music doesn't just focus in one genre. They have this kind of energy on stage that can able to hype everyone.

Alice Nine for 2020 Olympics!

These guys definitely deserve the chance to shine ever since they went Indie. I think having an all time favorite for the Olympics should definitely be a good hit. A9 has such a vast variety of songs that I know a handful of them would be very appropriate for the event. I believe A9 is the best candidate because they started to multi genre movement and they deserve a lot more love then what people give them, without A9 most of those bands out there WILL NOT exist. I feel these guys need all the love they can get. I feel they are a perfect fit for the 2020 Olympics

30 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.

I love them forever

With all of the attention Babymetal have been getting recently, as said before. 2020. Slayer status... - VenomGTRS

They are doing a fantastic thing in metal history! And they are letting people know more about Japan's music culture. The three girls are optimistic and hardworking, which is the best explanation of Olympic spirit.

They may be the most famous Japanese band all over the world in 2020.

She is the best Japanese singer I have heard! I always get interesting point from her charming lyric! Every one of her songs with creative orchestration and wonderful melody!

With hits not only in Japan but all over the world, Utada is a cultural phenomenon that should be chosen to represent Japan in the Opening Ceremonies.

33 Dimash Kudaibergen

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. - Beihilfebeleg

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!

Will never regret Dimash sing at the opening of the olympics!

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!

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!
