If you have been following the reports on the WACK Auditions this is the culmination of all the competition, all the running, all the hot sauce and lordy be, all the crying. For your viewing pleasure, here is the WACK EXHiBiTiON. Also included is Watanabe’s opening MC as well as the closing where you will find out what happened to our brave and enduring hopefuls is, of course, also included. So, let’s get on with it.
First off was the opening MC by Watanabe Junnosuke. In it, from what I understand, he tells a joke, announces that Orchestra is returned to BiSH (we all knew that would happen) and pretty much says enjoy the show. (sorry for the super low audio on this clip)
After that, GANG PARADE took to the stage and put on a pretty damn good show. The set list was:
- Happy Lucky Kirakira Lucky
- pretty pretty good
- Plastic 2 Mercy
The next up was BiS. They put on a super energetic show, super enjoyable. The set list was:
- Give me your love 全部
Last to take the stage was, of course, BiSH. They gave a wonderful performance, even if Gumi didn’t seem to give 100%. The set list was:
- DA DANCE!!
- beautiful さ
After that Watanabe took the stage again soon followed by the 8 new girls. They all introduced themselves. After a couple words from Watanabe the girls from all the established WACK groups also came to the stage. Oshoji Megumi and Hirano Suma were announced as new members of BiS. After this, everything else was very, very unexpected, Aya was moved to GANG PARADE and Saki was moved to BiS. Now, this trade is only in effect until September, so don’t blow an o-ring. Then it was announced that a new group was being formed cooperatively between WACK and avex, called Project aW. The members of this group would be Momokogumi.inc and Gamiya Saki, with auditions to be done later for additional members. As for the other 4 girls, well, this was the end of the line. They left the stage. There were comments from all the groups on stage in turn, and plenty of crying to go with it.
After quite a wait there was one more bit of video, I am not sure exactly what it is about but I think it is just a see you next time type of thing.
