Inoue Mao and Arashi to host 62nd Kouhaku Uta Gassen


On 19th October, NHK announced its love for Maotsujun!!! hosts for the 62nd Kouhaku Uta Gassen. Actress Inoue Mao will lead the Red Team while Arashi will be in charge of the White Team for the second year running. Inoue was selected because of the overwhelming positive response she received from television viewers in 'Ohisama'. She admitted to hesitating when she first received the offer. "It was with everyone's support that I was able to take part in Ohisama. The driving force came from what I was able to do, together with courage and hope, so I look forward to returning the favour after this one year with NHK." The theme for this year is 'Ashita wo utaou' (Sing for Tomorrow). "I think there are many people who face 'tomorrow' with anxiety because of the earthquake disaster this year, and I'm one of them. But songs bring strength and it'll be wonderful if we can face tomorrow and the future with hope." The 62nd Kouhaku Uta Gassen will air on 31st December from 7:15pm.
