ARASHI and BTS to perform at 62nd Japan Record Awards

Best-selling J-pop group ARASHI and K-pop titans BTS are set to share the same (virtual) stage this December.

The Japanese boyband, who will be taking an indefinite hiatus by the end of 2020, will be attending the Japan Record Awards for the very first time since their debut in 1999. The 'Party Starters' hitmakers are set to receive the Special Honor Award, as well as perform on the 62nd edition of the annual awards show, a day before their New Year's Eve special - THIS IS ARASHI LIVE.

Ahead of their Weverse New Year's Eve Live Concert performance alongside Big Hit Labels artists, BTS are scheduled to make a virtual appearance to receive this year's Special International Music Award. The global superstars will also perform their Grammy-nominated hit, 'Dynamite' and second Billboard Hot 100 number 1 single, 'Life Goes On'.

The likes of Eito’s 'Kousui,' LiSA’s 'Homura', Nogizaka46’s 'Sekaijuu no Rinjin yo,' Kiyoshi Hikawa’s 'Haha,' and DISH//’s 'Neko ~THE FIRST TAKE ver.~' have been nominated for Song of the Year. Meanwhile, Fukuda Kouhei has been named Best Vocalist.

The awards ceremony will air via TBS (Tokyo Broadcasting System) on 30 December at 5:30 PM KST.
