Who says Kpop and Jpop can’t be enjoyed together? SNSD and AKB48 were featured at the FNS Music Festival and performed their hit songs: ‘Genie’ and ‘Gee’ by SNSD, ‘Beginner’ and ‘Aitakatta’ by AKB48.
Both had great performances and looked like they sang live while being backed up by recordings. AKB started the show off with ‘Beginner’, followed immediately by ‘Genie’; and like-wise, ‘Gee’ was immediately proceeded by ‘Aitakatta’. Two completely different groups and vibes, but somehow it ended being a great blend. Personally, I think Aitakatta has been performed enough live and doesn’t really represent their current catalog of songs that well ; let’s get some ‘Oogoe Diamond’ or ’10-nen Zakura’ out there (though what I -really- want is a performance of Keibetsu Shiteita Aijou)!
Here are a few performances from this event:
