>The Goodbye NYC, Goodbye USA Theme Festival: Day Three Entr’acte

>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.

    >The second clip is a bit stroppy in that it takes awhile to load; however, on the upside it’s the only one I could find online where there wasn’t a 2 minute long praise of Kiyoshi before he actually got down to singing.
