The Former Members of Morning Musume Gather for a Live Performance After One Year!
It’s been one year since the original members of Morning Musume have gathered together -Mari Yaguchi, Kaori Iida, Ai Takahashi, announcer Asami Konno, and Nozomi Tsuji!
Morning Musume’s original members will hold a performance during the TV Tokyo music festival (2), with the performance being broadcasted from 6:30pm (JST) on TV Tokyo June 24th!
Last October, Mari Yaguchi hit the stage and performed for the first time alongside the original members of Morning Musume. But what is even more amazing is that Asami Konno, the present announcer for TV Tokyo, will be making what seems to be a one-night comeback by joining the original members in this performance. It will also be the first time that Asami Konno joins the original Morning Musume。 team in a performance that will be broadcasted live on TV.
When asked about her comeback performance, Asami Konno stated happily “I never even imagined that I’d be standing on stage with these girls again after so long, it’s such a great surprise. I’m still dancing these days but it has definitely been a long time since I’ve sung like this and worked together to move through different formations. In addition to expressing some concerns, Konno also expressed her desire to give it her all saying, “Getting the chance to sing a part of Goto, someone I very much look up to, means that I need to ensure I put in my absolute best! I want to give the best performance I can!
Konno also stated ‘it’s been 6 years since my last live performance so I feel quite nervous but during the practice it felt so good to be performing again just like old times so I really want to make sure I enjoy the performance on the day.
Last year on the same program, it had been approximately 2 years and 8 months since such a talented performance was had. This time we won’t be honored with Goto’s performance, but Kaori Iida, Kei Yasuda, Mari Yaguchi, Rika Ishikawa, Hitomi Yoshikawa Nozomi Tsuji, Ai Takahashi, Risa Niigaki, and Konno will gather to provide us with a show to remember! On the day of the live broadcast, June 24th, a 4-song medley including “Daite HOLD ON ME!””LOVE Machine”, “Koi no Dance Site” and “Happy Summer Wedding” will be shown, so mark those calendars!
