default NHK Kouhaku Red & White Festival

Hello members, have you ever heard of NHK? Its a television broadcast company from Japan and do you know what is the NHK Kouhaku Red & White Festival? Please reply this post do you know or not...lol

Okay...let me explain more widely, It was Japan's most popular music program!!!!!





The program's title is Kohaku Utagassen in Japanese, which literally means "Red & White Song Festival." The participating singers are divided into two teams, Red and White, each with about 25 individual singers or groups. The Red teams is women, and the White is men. Kohaku Utagassen is no ordinary music program. It has grown to be a national institution over its 52- year history, and is now an indispensable part of the New Year celebrations. Even one single appearance is a milestone in a singer's career ensuring his or her reputation for life. And all were famous singers throughout Japan, it was officially held every new year eve !!

NHK's first Red & White Year-end Song Festival was broadcast on the radio on January 3, 1951. From the moment the first artist, Sugawara Tsuzuko, began to sing, the excitement in the studio spread to the whole country, and NHK's phone lines were buzzing with comments and inquiries. This was the year Japan signed the San Francisco Peace Treaty and General MacArthur was withdrawn from his post as supreme commander of the Allied Occupation forces.
The following year, the second Red & White Year-end Song Festival was extended to 90 minutes. The third was broadcast on January 2, 1953, and the fourth on December 31 the same year. This double broadcast in 1953 occurred because the program was not yet established as an annual music event. The fourth festival coincided with the start of TV broadcasting in Japan, and was the first to be held in front of a live audience on New Year's Eve, as it still is today. It is said that this date was chosen because early January is a busy time of year for the entertainment industry and it was easier to secure a large venue on New Year's Eve.

You know what? I've seen Morning Musume performing their music....its acts just like Music Station but its a bit special!! It consists of almost all singers, like singers all-starts duel between Girl singers and boy singers! ^^
