YUI Not Attending Kouhaku

Wednesday, December 5, 2007

The official list of Kouhaku performers has been released. Familiar faces include Ayumi Hamasaki, Ai Otsuka, and Mika Nakashima on the Red Team, and Porno Graffitti, Ken Hirai, Gackt, and TOKIO representing the White Team. Many other artists' names that do not appear in the list include Namie Amuro, Utada Hikaru, Yuna Ito, and our beloved YUI? Did she decline the invitation because she was too busy? We may never know...
