Just recently it was announced that Matsushita Nao and Arashi have been chosen as hosts for NHK's annual music show on New Year's Eve, "Kohaku Uta Gassen (Kohaku)"!

"Kohaku" started its broadcast back in 1951, and "the program divides the most popular music artists of the year into competing teams of red and white. The 'red'team, or 'akagumi', is composed of all female artists (or groups with female vocals), while the 'white' team, or 'shirogumi', is all male (or groups with male vocals)."

Matsushita will be leading "Red Team", while the Arashi members will go with "White Team", and they will also be the first group host for "Kohaku". Other than Matsushita and Arashi, Terry Ito, Sekine Mari, and Mizuki Nana will also make appearance as "KohakuSupporters".

This year's "Kohaku" will start on 7:15 p.m and run until 11:45 p.m. on December 31st!
