The white group is divided into human singers and the red group is divided into VTubers. As for the participation of each group, Oishishima Yoshiyoshi, Sky Peace, Yoko Takahashi, Takanori Nishikawa, Takashi Hosokawa, Hiroko Moriguchi, Apple-chan appeared in the white group first. For the Red Group, .LIVE idol club, Kizunaai, Punky Fine featuring Denno Shoujo Shiro, Higuchi Kaoru, HIMEHINA (Tanaka Hime + Suzuki Hina), Pinky Pop Hepburn, Fuji Kaoru.
Moderators are NHK's announcer Odagiri 1000 (Bengumi) and Nobuka Akagi (Shirogumi). I think that there is no Vtuber in the moderator, but as a “virtual ura talk”, Misaki Tsukino and Fubuki Shirakami will make the broadcast with sub-audio.
It is a little disappointing that Takashi Hosokawa is the only person who can barely bring out the uniqueness of a red and white song battle. This is a special guestAI Misora HibariI wanted to participate in. It seems that it will be difficult to judge whether to enter the red group or the white group.
Anyway, even for those who are not familiar with VTuber, it may be a chance to get rid of hate without eating if it is in the form of a singing battle with a real singer. Also, for each VTuber fan, if this program is successful, it may be a foothold for VTuber advancement into the traditional red and white song battle in the future.
The broadcast date of the virtual red and white song battle will start from 11:10 pm on January 1, 2020 on NHK General TV.
