AKB48 3rd Senbatsu General Election - Final Results

The 3rd Senbatsu General Elections concluded just a few hours ago, and here's the lowdown on the event. Comments will come in a separate post.

The eventful night kickstarted with a few performances to heighten the atmosphere. SKE48 brought up the energy with Banzai Venus, while NMB48 performed their upcoming debut single, Zetsumetsu Kurogami Shoujo. The AKB48 kenkyuusei, sans members from the newly-formed Team 4, made an appearance with their version of Heavy Rotation and Iriyama Anna took center position. Ponytail to Shushu was performed by the Undergirls with Nito Moeno as center, and finally to close off the performances, AKB48's senbatsu entertained the crowd with the best-selling latest single Everyday, Kachuusha.

The rankings were then revealed, starting at 7pm JPT, with the estimated ending time of 9pm JPT.

Member positions and comments under the cut, in ascending order.

The results of the election will be for AKB48's 22nd Single, yet to be titled, which is set to be released on 24 August 2011.
