LiSA Set to Make Her Kohaku Uta Gassen Debut on December 31

Anime News

LiSA is a household name to anime fans worldwide, as she has performed many songs from ultra-popular anime series. This year, she sang for two of the most-talked about series for 2019: “Gurenge” for Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba (which Panic! at the Disco vocalist Brendon Urie rocked and sang along too in a recent stream) and “unlasting” for Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of the Underworld.

2019 has indeed been a great year to LiSA and the anisong singer is set to end the year with a bang, as she will be appearing in the Kohaku Uta Gassen!

For those who are not aware, Kohaku Uta Gassen (literally, “Red and White Song Contest”) is a yearly New Year’s Eve show by major Japanese channel NHK. The yearly New Year’s Eve event usually divides its guest artists into two teams: the females into the red team and the male performers in the white team. Guest artists are usually picked based on music sales, polls conducted by NHK, and other metrics that determine an artist’s prestige and popularity. As such, to be invited to the event is a huge honor for Japanese singers.

LiSA has posted a message on Twitter about her debut in Kohaku Uta Gassen, and the singer is obviously excited to make “another big dream” come true. The full translation of her tweet reads:

“I will make my first appearance in the 70th Kohaku Uta Gassen. I will do my best to deliver a performance on my own way through the TV to the people around the world who have supported LiSA until today, and to the people who watch LiSA for the first time in Kohaku Uta Gassen. Please watch the moment that my another big dream comes true on New Year’s Eve together.”

The 70th Kohaku Uta Gassen will air on NHK on December 31, 19:15 to 23:45.
