On yesterday’s episode of Bijo Gaku they showed the first footage of the Morning Musume 9th generation auditions. The footage is only 4:30 minutes long, and we hardly get to see any footage of the girls. The footage also shows the final 5 girls rather than most of the girls who audition, like past auditions have shown.
In this clip we only see one girl sing the first line of the chorus to C-ute’s Aitai Lonely Christmas, and one girl dance for about 10 seconds, then she immediately cries.
Here are the 5 finalists: (well actually they may or may no be finalists. Only half of them could be or just one. The truth is, no one knows for sure just yet.)
Apparently this girl won the audition to be in Morning Musume’s stage play Fashionable. I just think it’s so funny she made it to the finals. Mostly because I said here that there was a good chance the winner of the auditions would become a 9th generation member.
So far the first and last girl look like they would make a good addition to the group. But since they haven’t shown them singing or dancing, it’s far to early to make that judgement. I’m looking forward to the next episode, where we will most likely hear everyone sing.
