AKB48 to hold competition to choose which member will sing 24th single CD

TOKYO — Popular all-girl group AKB48 will hold a competition in September to choose which member will sing their 24th Single CD, scheduled to go on sale in December. The group is so popular that anytime a new single is released, sales surpass 1 million. This will be the second time the group has held such a contest. It will be held Sept 20 at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo. The lucky singer will be chosen by “janken” (rock-scissors-paper).

Last year, 47 members of AKB48 and four students took part in the competition. This year, a total of 71 will compete, including five members of SKE48, five from NMB48 and three student members of AKB48.
