>Two enka performances from this past year’s Kouhaku. One very emotional. One extremely campy.
First, Jero performs Umiyuki (and yes, I got a little misty watching it the first time)
Secondly, Kiyoshi Hikawa closed out the show with his verging on irritating, but still catchy Kiyoshi’s Zundokobashi with some of the most OTT backing dancers/shouters I’ve ever seen.
