On October 6, AKB48’s sister group JKT48 broadcast the final auditions for their second generation members on Indonesia’s largest television network “RCTI”; it was announced that “31 finalists have qualified for the final selection in Japan.”
The 'JKT48 Second Generation Audition' special live stream began at 3 PM Jakarta time and when it was time to announce qualifying second generation finalists, AKB48 producer Akimoto Yasushi appeared in a surprise video.
In the video, he stated, “To all the finalists who have made it to the final audition, congratulations. Even as I say this, this is not the end. I invite the finalists who have passed the audition today to come to Japan, where I will oversee ‘the final selection.’” Of the 67 girls who attended the final audition [in Indonesia], 31 were given 'Japan tickets'.
Finalists who made it to the final selection expressed their joy with, “I was so happy I did not believe it. I will try my best in training from here on out,” and “I also auditioned to become a first generation member, but was not chosen. I will try my best from here on out.”
