Unfortunately did not find a stream until a good way into the program. But at least I got to see the Disney collaboration.
While their segment was really short Kanjani8 made sure to live up to their reputation for laughs. Pairing them will Goofy of course makes perfect sense.
Also to note found another stream that looks to be in much better picture quality so I have switched to that.
The morning drama Jun to Ai gets promoted with cast so we get to see
One of the things I love about Kouhaku are the over the top sets and performances. The enka singers excel at this such as the long dress here.
And sorry for not thinking of it earlier but if you want to catch the live stream here is the link to the one I am using: http://ja.justin.tv/anninoshi#/w/4469767088/4
When the news is over it should be K8 time!
Well that was a ton of fun though the stream quality was not the best all the way through. Give me a bit more and I will spam with performance screen caps.
And here we are. They performed Naniwa Iroha Bushi and Musekinin(sp?) Hero.
And of course it is TOKIO up next so I did not have enough time to sort the caps. Oh well, the issues of live blogging. And the reason why the JCD one will have no screen caps. I don't want to miss much of that.
TOKIO sang KIBOU and of course I loved it. But that is probably mostly out of my love for the group in general.
Loved Perfume's stage. They really looked like they were giving a true concert performance with the level of tech used.
Arashi do their talk and performance of Furusato.
Looks like we get the start of the live feeds from around the globe. And we start off in Portland, OR, USA. Kinda nice to have someone in my timezone.
K8 gets to be with TOKIO as special supporters for an enka performance.
Nice to see Sakamoto Fumi still being boss.
A short tribute to the greats of Japanese entertainment that passed this year. RIP Mori Mitsuko.
Seeing Wada Akiko get teary eyed made me do the same. Really powerful performance.
I figure I won't bother to screen cap EXILE as they aren't bothering to perform anything new. Seriously guys, you have more than one song and it would be nice if you performed them and not this one over and over again.
Looks like Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is not the only fashion monster on the show tonight.
Massha of course being live streamed in even though he's just down in Yokohama.
I keep wondering how they plan on cleaning up all that fake snow after this performance while watching it. But at least it looks really impressive.
Yoshida has such a lovely kimono on. I love that she is getting all kinds of recognition this year after winning gold yet again at the Olympics.
SMAP up. And they give a solid performance from them, so yes some painful singing moments.
Will be switching over to JCD shortly, with hopefully a stream that will work. We shall see.
It's voting time and I think I won't chance another screen cap as I search for the best JCD stream.
And the winner is WHITE TEAM!
And I will be switching over to focus on JCD now.
