NTV's music special 'Best Artist 2020' will air on November 25 from 7:00 pm JST.
The program will be hosted by Arashi's Sakurai Sho for the 12th consecutive time. He commented, "I hope to deliver the 'passion' of the approximately 40 artists who will be making an appearance this time. This year, the studio will have no audience, but I believe that each artist will perform with enthusiasm in the same way they would with an audience."
The four-hour live broadcast will feature performances by Ikimonogakari, Arashi, King Gnu, SEKAI NO OWARI, Nogizaka46, Perfume, Fukuyama Masaharu, Foorin, Mr.Children, and LiSA. There will be a "happy song medley" featuring Arashi's "Happiness," Foorin's "Paprika," and SEKAI NO OWARI's "RPG." In addition, there will be a Johnny's medley with a total of 56 Johnny's talents including Arashi, NEWS, Kanjani8, KAT-TUN, Hey! Say! JUMP, Sexy Zone, Johnny's WEST, King & Prince, SixTONES, and Snow Man.
