Sixteen Years of Morning Musume

It’s the morning of September 15, 2013, and Michishige Sayumi is preparing herself for one of her most monumental performances, ever. And no, she’s not about to go live at the Super Bowl™ like Madonna, or preforming at the VMAs like Miley Cyrus (I should hope not!!). Michishige is the twenty-four-year-old leader of the world-famous group, Morning Musume, and they are about to go live for the Sixteen-Year Anniversary Performance.

Michishige fluffs out her bangs and examines herself in the mirror, getting ready to put on her Game Face. Her group-mates and fellow idols- Fukumura Mizuki, Ikuta Erina, Sayashi Riho, Suzuki Kanon, Iikubo Haruna, Ishida Ayumi, Sato Masaki, Kudo Haruka, and Oda Sakura- are all ready to go, pumped for their major performance.

“WE ARE MORNING MUSUME!” The girls shout in unison.

The curtains open. The lights go on. It’s Morning Musume time.

Morning Musume took to the stage in angelic white outfits complete with Loli-style high-heeled white boots and subtly accented tops. They are the eptiome of in-synch as the preform ‘Renai Revolution 21’ with brand new dances moves for the first time ever.They also announced that they added another show to their upcoming tour, this one in Nippon Budokan- and this time no one is graduating!

Their facial expressions upon seeing the cake are just too cute! I’m so proud of the girls! ❤

Tears of happiness were shed

May Morning Musume have many more great years as an idol group! ❤ Best of luck, girls!
