Perfume currently #1 in Yahoo poll on preferred artiste to represent Tokyo Olympics 2020

I’m very happy that the Yahoo poll submitted by over 200,000 users voted for Perfume to be in the top spot as their preferred artiste to perform the theme song for Tokyo Olympics 2020.

As of today, Perfume gathered over 50,000 votes, with Johnny Entertainment’s Arashi getting a distant second place at 34,000 votes. Hatsune Miku, the Vocaloid idol many youngsters prefer, got a paltry 26,000 votes. Miku gathered the top position just a few days prior, with Arashi in 2nd place and Perfume among the top 5.

Perfume member Nocchi celebrated her 25th birthday recently, and if things go well for them, Perfume will be performing the Olympics theme song when they hit 30. Seeing as how Perfume has matured well from teen idols to entertainers and artistes in their own right, I’d not be too concerned about them not being able to live up to expectations 6 years from now.
