Review New Year 2020: Kayakizaka46 fails to reach the finish line again
The Japanese idol group Keyakizaka46 has simply no luck with their hit Fukyowaon at the prestigious TV show NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen. As with the 68th NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen, Keyakizaka46 Center Hirate Yurina had to be carried off the stage by members of the group at the end of Fukyowaon’s performance at the 70th Kohaku. Fans and members of the press were concerned about her health, so Keyakizaka46 management was forced to issue a press release saying: “Hirate Yurina is fine. She gave her best and has no health problems”. However, in the following live show “TBS music show 2019-2020 CDTV Toshikoshi Premier Live” of TBS, Hirate Yirina was replaced by Keyakizaka46 member Morita Hikaru on the center position of the song “Kuroi Hitsuji”.
