Kohaku Uta Gassen 2022: NHK’s annual Kohaku Uta Gassen music extravaganza, featuring an impressive roster of performers screaming out popular tunes, will premiere on New Year’s Eve. NHK broadcast the concert’s whole soundtrack online on Thursday.
Anime like Demon Slayer, One Piece Film Red, and Spy x Family will feature songs, performers, and characters in the announcements. Kohaku Uta Gassen, often known as “Kohaku,” is an annual NHK New Year’s Eve variety show.
The first broadcast was on the radio in 1951, making this year’s episode the 73rd overall. NHK invites only the most well-known and successful vocal groups in Japan to perform on Kohaku.
During Kohaku, performers “contest” by singing their chosen songs, with the Red team consisting of female-only and female-led performances and the White squad consisting of male-only and male-led acts.
A team of judges and votes from the crowd then selects the best group. Kohaku remains one of Japan’s most popular music shows despite falling viewership in recent years.
Some members of both teams are performing songs from popular anime during this year’s Kohaku Uta Gassen.
Aimer, who sings the “Zankyo Sanka” theme song from the Demon Slayer Entertainment District arc, and Ryoko Shinohara, who performs a new arrangement of the “Itoshisa to Setsunasa to Kokoro Tsuyosa to” the theme song from the Street Fighter franchise, are part of the Red team.
Ado, who will also perform as Uta from One Piece Film: Red, will sing “New Genesis” in character. Gen Hoshino, who performed the original Spy x Family closing theme, “Kigeki,” will be included on the White team.

Osomatsu-san was recently adapted into a live-action film, and the band Snow Man will perform a song called “Brother Beat,” which appeared on the film’s soundtrack.
Finally, Kiyoshi Hikawa will play “Genkai Toppa x Survivor” from Dragon Ball Super for the unaffiliated “Special Corner” concerts.
There will be performances by other artists associated with anime, such as Milet and Official HIGE DANdism, although they won’t be playing any songs from the shows themselves. Japan and the rest of the world can tune in to NHK on December 31 for the 2022 Kohaku Uta Gassen.
