OK OK OK... Sooo I just decided to care enough to finish watching the Morning Musume 9th generation audition special. Holy shit, I'm in love with Sayashi Riho. The girl dances like no other 12 year old I've ever seen. She has a promising voice, and the cutest little face! I can see that she has self confidence but not so much that you come off as a Fujimoto Miki. I love her!
She's a promising addition, and if the agency uses her right, she's going to be such a hit among those crazy wotas, it'll be ridiculous! I'm pretty sure she's already stirred up a ton of fans because of her undeniable charm. I just can't wait to see her in make-up and costume and dancing with the rest of Morning Musume! It's like she was made to be Momusu!
All right, enough fangirling about Sayashi. What about the others?!?!?!
Suzuki Kanon. When I first saw the girl try to learn the dance for the audition... holy shit she was all over the place. But DAMN does that girl work hard! Even though she's not the best dancer of the three at all, she has a presence that just wowed me when she was performing. While she was dancing with the other four contestants, she owned the stage. She was all smiles and confidence, and that really impressed me. Not to mention she's a cutie and has a really strong singing voice. It needs some polishing, but also another promising pick on Tsunku's behalf.
Ikuta Erina. This girl is a cutie. She's not a bad dancer, and not a bad singer. She's got it down, but for some reason she didn't make a strong impression on me. It wasn't like "damn she good!" because I was so distracted by Sayashi's dancing and cute little voice, and Suzuki's charming presence, but she gives a good vibe. Seems a little quiet, buut I think with practice and a little more confidence she'll be quite a star.
I'm sorry only Riho got a pic. I love her. She's already my favorite Momusu (lols jk, I think I like Sayumi best right now)
I don't know anything about Fukumura, so we'll have to see... I really CANNOT wait 'till these ladies debut.
