YOSHIKI of “X JAPAN” became the first Japanese to leave his handprint on the Chinese Theater this September.

On November 13, the NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen (Red and White Singers Contest) was held at the station in Shibuya, Tokyo, and for the first time in 44 years, there were no singers from the former Johnny’s office.

The NHK has decided not to use any new singers for the program, in keeping with its long-standing policy, as the compensation work of SMILE-UP. has just begun and cannot be evaluated.

In the white group, which was left out by the former Johnny’s, there were eight groups making their first appearances. The eight-member male group “Stray Kids,” the 13-member group “Seventeen,” and the talented rock band “Mrs. Green Apple” were among the first-time entrants.

The focus for the future will be on whether or not there will be any big-name artists appearing in the so-called “special” or “special project” slots.

Last year, Yuzo Kayama, Kiyoshi Hikawa, Yumi Matsutoya, and Safety Zone each performed, and there was also a collaboration project featuring Keisuke Kuwata feat. Motoharu Sano, Masanori Sera, Char, and Goro Noguchi, who formed an “outdated Rock’n Roll Band.

Mr. Nobuhiro Otsuka, Kohaku production supervisor, commented on the surprise.

Mr. Nobuhiro Otsuka, Kohaku’s production supervisor, stated, “Of course, there is a possibility that we will continue to negotiate with the artists whose names are not mentioned in the future.

Sports Nippon reported the same news. Sports Nippon reported the following comments from a source at the station

“We are aiming to have big-name overseas artists perform and popular domestic bands reunite on the Kohaku stage,” Sports Nippon reported.

The report said.

The memorial corners for singer Shinji Tanimura, who passed away in October of this year, and Ryuichi Sakamoto, who passed away in March, are certain to be featured. In the former, Takao Horiuchi and Toru Yazawa, members of Alice, will probably perform and sing hit songs from the past.

(Music insider) “In the midst of all this, the special stage of “X JAPAN” is gaining momentum.

On the 29th of last month, HEATH, a member of the band, died suddenly, and YOSHIKI announced on the band’s official website through the bereaved family, “Please don’t be sad.

YOSHIKI said on the band’s official website, “Please don’t be sad. Please send him off cheerfully and happily.

I hope YOSHIKI will hold a memorial concert.

YOSHIKI’s words were entrusted to him through the bereaved family.

He told me that before his death, HEATH had told him that he wanted to perform live with X JAPAN. NHK is also “inquiring” about it.

However, YOSHIKI also wrote, “I’m going to discuss this with my relatives.

However, YOSHIKI also wrote, “I will have to discuss this with the relatives and make HEATH’s wish come true. And in order to make it happen, there are some things we have to fight for.

What these “things we have to fight for” mean is unclear. Some fans are hoping for a “thaw” with vocalist ToshI. ……

X Japan has been on hiatus since 2006. X JAPAN has been inactive since 2006. It was reported in some quarters that YOSHIKI had not paid ToshI. In fact, the relationship between the two has cooled so much that they have no choice but to communicate through their representatives.

Even at HEATH’s funeral, the people involved made sure that the two would not butt heads. A compromise from YOSHIKI is essential for the resumption of activities. However, it remains to be seen whether Toshii will agree to discuss the matter with YOSHIKI.

Since the Kohaku White is to be held without Johnny’s, NHK is said to be negotiating with the “big guns” until the very last minute. Will the “surprise” that transcends love and hate come true?
