Arashi will appear at the “Japan Record Awards” for the first time
The 62nd Japan Record Awards will air on December 30.

It was announced today that Japanese group Arashi will appear on the show, having received a special honor award. This is the group’s first appearance at the “Japan Record Awards” in the group’s 21-year artistic career.

Johnny & Associates groups are known for not participating in the show, which dates back to an incident related to the 32nd Japan Record Awards in 1990. That year, there was a gender dispute, due to the group “Ninja” being Awarded ‘Best New Pop Artist’ for his song “Omatsuri Ninja”, instead of the desired ‘Best New Artist Enka’ or ‘Best New Artist Kayokyoku’. Johnny & Associates also believes that participating in the program would create an unhealthy and competitive atmosphere within the company.

In addition to receiving the ‘Special Honor Award’, Arashi will also perform on the show.
