AKB48 to perform [RIVER Surprise Kohaku Remix] for Kohaku

The Kohaku Uta Gassen official website has updated their website with the songs that the artists will be singing. The song that AKB will be singing is titled [RIVER Surprise Kouhaku Remix]. This is probably a medley of RIVER and Namida Surprise. I can understand why they choose these songs. RIVER is their best selling single till date and it is Kohaku's 60th Anniversary so that's they went with the birthday song. I would have preferred it if they did a medley of RIVER and Oogoe or Iiwake though. NamiSapu ain't one of my preferred singles. It's great and all but it's not my type. I can't listen to it more than 5 times in a row without feeling bored. Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how they will pull this off and mix the two songs together. The fierceness of RIVER and the GENKIness of NamiSapu.

In other news, there is unconfirmed news that 100+ members of AKB are going to attend the Kouhaku performance. Seriously... they already broke the record for having the most numbers at Kouhaku two years ago. If the source is true then it will be an awesome show. Just uh add lots more reinforcements under the stage XD. All those members stomping to RIVER. Can't wait for it.
