    TWICE must be really huge in Japan since they're the only Korean act in the entire list. Does anyone know where I can stream this? Or is there a chance they will air it on international Japanese TV stations? I really want to see this for E-Girls, X Japan, Kana Nishino (and TWICE) since they're honestly the only acts I know on the list.

    I haven't heard of TOKIO but just searched them in the jpopasia search bar and, considering they have been active since 1978, and seems that they're popular, 24 times seems like a reasonable number. Then again, X Japan is also popular but have only been on the show 8 times while other artists like Hiroshi Itsuki have been on 40+ times
