Singer Hiromi Go, 53, center, poses with the eight semifinalists of the Lux Shine Audition. The winner will earn the chance to star in a LUX hair product commercial next year along with a Hollywood actress, as well as score a scholarship. Go offered some words of wisdom to the women on surviving in the world of show business, as this year marks the 38th year since his debut. "I'm like a 24 hour hot-water supply system," he declared when asked if he ever takes a break. "I'm always on, never off." Each contestant has been provided with a 100 million yen "hair insurance" in order to maintain their luscious locks throughout the competition. You can vote for the woman of your choice online at http://www.luxfilm.jp/ until July 31.

I’m like a 24 hour hot-water supply system.

This dude could use a little help in coming up with metaphors. And hair insurance? Hope AIG isn't underwriting those policies with my hard-earned cash...

Added Go, "Please kill me. I have been reduced to promoting hair products. My soul is dead."

The one on the far right doesn't look too happy. Maybe she ran out of shampoo.

I'm voting for Go to get a commemorative statute in front of each and every Takasu Clinic.

The legs on that 3rd from the left... it's something else...

I would love to be a fly on the wall back-stage here just to catch a glimpse of the catiness going on. The one on the far right with the soul-less eyes looks like she could claw someone's uterus out.

If that's what 'Lux' does to the hair, I will give it a thumbs down. None of the above impresses me.

I made a Takasu Clinic TV CM with Go-san 5 years ago. He was very down to earth, spoke good English and evidently enjoyed being surrounded by the fairer sex.

Get plastic surgery each month, just like me.

Japan is Blessed with beautiful women. I married one and have been blessed.

Not one of them is standing in that funny pigeon-toed manner that westerners love to criticise Japanese girls for doing. Maybe it's gone out of fashion? And they're all gorgeous to me!

I agree wholeheartedly! I am similarly blessed.

Third left in the blue-green, and extreme left in the red, please take one step forward. Everybody else, that's all for today, thank you for coming, better luck next time.

Excellent! You've left fourth left in the blue for me!

I don't really see what I like her. Can we get 8 new finalists?

The third from the left. She wins. Her name is Maria.

Second from right. Done and done. Thank you, ladies; Mr. Go, nice shoes, now goodbye.

The guy says he is a geezer (geyser)... ;-)

Sorry, she is Myah. She is just 20 years.

The two on the left are the wrong way round.

Is Lux now into the oyaji plastic surgery business now?

BTW how refreshing to see Japanese women with NATURALLY looking hair and none of that cheap dye job which seems to be so ubiquitous.

The contestants' hair looks mighty thin to me, especially the lady on Go's left. There is one who is not smiling. They are all rather good looking.

abromofo at 02:18 PM JST - 8th July Not one of them is standing in that funny pigeon-toed manner that westerners love to criticise Japanese girls for doing. Maybe it's gone out of fashion?

That's because they are dressed and posed in a Western fashion - soto/uchi, tatemai/honne. You know, right?

Mr. "Always on, never off" Go has found some very attractive ladies. The girl on the right however looks a bit unhappy. I would be glad to cheer her up. Perhaps someone twisted up her bronze-silk dress just a little too tightly?

What a line up. Japanese girls are top shelf. The one on the far right needs a smile. The two girls immediately right and left of Hiromi are the most beautiful, but beauty lies in the eye of the beholder.

old purple thunder has got a lazy eye, or too much batting of the eyelashes
