Wouldn’t It Be Nice

Just read this comment on a 紅白BBS:

紅白トリ  投稿者: ながの  投稿日:10月21日(金)00時33分25秒

中 森明菜は、今年の紅白当選確実視されてるように思います。そこで、是非トリをやってもらいたいなと思います。彼女にとってのビッグタイトルで実現されてな いのは、東西の各有線大賞グランプリと紅白のトリのみなのです。実力もあり大物として申し分ないと思います。どうせいつもの和田、石川、天童、坂本、小林 の5強のトリはうんざりだから。2002年の時も曲目はメドレーを明菜本人は希望してたらしいのですが1曲じっくり歌ってというNHKの要望だったので今 年はとりをとってじっくり聞かせて盛り上げてほしいものです。

I wonder if it is an Akina fan who posted it. It is true about what he/she said that though Akina dominated most of the awards ceremony, she was never cast as the トリ (last performer) for the Red Team, which is the greatest honour on both teams. 山口百恵 and 安室奈美恵 were the only idol singers who were invited to do so, and there were rumors that Akina was considered for 難破船, though there was no confirmation.

I don’t think she will be トリ this year, but wouldn’t it be nice dream … now if she was eventually invited.


Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.
