NHK Kouhaku Utagassen Prestige in Question
(11/29/2000 - Japan) Burdened by the inability to bring in 1999's top star, Utada Hikaru, and the financial escapades of a Kouhaku co-host, the 49th Kouhaku Utagassen was a humbling year for NHK.

The 51st annual celebration will only be a harder test: GLAY, Luna Sea, Utada Hikaru, and Kuraki Mai have all turned down invitations from NHK to perform at this year's New Year's party. Don't expect B'z, CHAGE & ASKA, ZARD, Mr. Children or Southern All Stars anytime soon; they all share a strict no-Kouhaku policy.

Among some of the many other pop stars of the year who will not be present: Arashi, Dreams Come True, globe, Fukuyama Masaharu, hiro, Judy & Mary, Kinki Kids, Matsu Takako, Shena Ringo, Shingo Mama, Tagawa Sumi, T.M. Revolution, Yuzu, and ZARD.
