The group performed a number of songs at the AKB48 Amphitheater in Akihabara this week to mark the release of a new single. Atsuko Maeda, a member of Team A and the group's unofficial leader unexpectedly took the No. 2 spot, while Oshima placed first. As the finalists' names were read out, Oshima bowed deeply to the crowd. “I can't thank you enough,” she told fans.

Maybe they know a few of their names because they, you know, actually get out occasionaly and engage in casual conversation with common local young adults. Seriously, dude. The average Japanese 20something yr old in a bar would probably know at least 3 names, just because they're all over the TV, train ads, billboards, magazines, Yahoo Japan, etc.....

Anyone who knows any of their names really needs to get out more.

Nice girl and all that, but come on people - she ain't THAT hot!

Apparently they aren't voting for looks, but for personality. At least that's what I assume when Yuko Oshima and Atsuko Maeda are at the top of the heap. There are at least 45 other members hotter than those two.
