How long ago were the days when she was referred to as 'that girl from the Super Monekeys who can actually sing"

In this crappy picture; yes. Amuro is a hottie as anybody that has purchased a Coke from a vending machine in Japan knows.

The male dancer looks like he has done that move many times, and not just dancing on stage. The female dancer is riding high on her Harley, but with nasty torn leg stockings!

this sort of pop 'porn' makes me laugh...

One of the sexiest women in the country. Real talent. Might explain why she's hardly ever on TV - she acts like a woman and can do things.

I didn't like her stuff when she was with TK, but her recent stuff is pretty good.

There's a joke circulating around that all TK produced songs have the same chord progresions as "Get Wild"

A rip off of Janet Jackson costumes. How original.

I still am hooked on the song that goes "anata no kissu oh, kazue masho" by Misia.

amuro-chan is definitely one of my favorites! her backup dancers are sexy as hell! i wish i can watch her performance!!!

In a sea of no-talent J-pop I have to give credit to the few artists who do actually have talent. Namie is certainly one of them. Though I don't personally like her music. She is a star in all the right sense of the word. Good luck to her. Japan needs to roll out more people who do actually have talent and retire the legions of no-talent kawaii stuff cluttering up the airways.

Namie is a cute young woman, but unfortunately for her, the photo puts her beside another young woman who is drop dead gorgeous. ...and who also has a great body.

oops, make that Folk songs.

@NeoJamal: About half the pop,rock,country,colk songs in the world have the same chord progression : 1-4-5-2seventh.

"WOW. Ah-a is still around?? And, who is that Susan Boyle person from Great Britain??"............hmmm who is susan boyle......not really sure if this person has any awareness of music or album sales in Europ or the US

Yeah, she is alright, but still not quite as good as anything from the west.

The guy on the left makes me laugh.

What's that thing on Namie's head?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

The back up dancer is either sponsored by a tissue company, or she stocked up on freebies in front of the station. And hot.

herefornow at 01:53 PM JST - 20th May IMO the dancer behind her is much hotter.

Which one?

0 ( +0 / -0 )

She's quite a good singer. I wish more J-pop stars could reach her singing abilities. This pic freaks me out though.

mrhog1234 at 04:36 AM JST - 21st May Is the male dancer wearing a cod piece? I didn't think asian men were so >well endowed.

I never checked.

I have never been a big fan of Amuro but she has had a long and successful career in Japan. It is also good to see Japanese artists in an international setting. As for the backup dancers, the dude looks like a zombie and the girl looks a bit like Debbie Harry - it's just a shame that she doesn't get paid enough to buy a new pair of stockings.

Cool! Real talent should get noticed. Not like the others in Japan who can't sing live! Obviously, the recording engineers are the real talents in Japan.

WOW. Ah-a is still around?? And, who is that Susan Boyle person from Great Britain??

WOW, are they really? I wonder if they can still sing the high notes after all this time.

Susan Boyle... she must be enjoying this.

From the looks of the background dancers I'm guessing the name of the new single Namie's singing is... Imaginary Carousel?
