JAN 29 UPDATE: VIDEOS WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES ADDED AND CHARICE TOPS THE JAPAN MUSIC CHARTS
Just right after her amazing, tear-inducing performances on NHK’s “Songs”, Charice will once again be on Japanese TV! According to her Warner Japan website, she will be featured on Fuji TV’s “The Best House 123″ on January 26. “The Best House 123″ is a popular program that compiles information from around the globe to come up with the top 3 of anything under the sun. For example, the top 3 hotels in the world. Each “guest” of the program will present a 3 minute video of his or her best hotel, and in the end, one of the hosts will decide which the “best” one is.
The show on the 26th will be a TV special – they will feature the “best” new stars who have achieved their big dreams after going through many trials. Charice will be up against Kento Mori, a Japanese dancer so good that Michael Jackson and Madonna have competed with each other to have him on their respective shows. Charice and Kento’s life stories will be featured in video clips, and both of them will be in the studio to perform.
So who will be the best new star? We are, of course, rooting for Charice but find out on January 26, Channel 8 from 10:00 pm Japan time.
