Namie Amuro will be performing at the 68th "Kohaku Uta Gassen", NHK has confirmed.
The original list of performers for this year's "Kohaku Uta Gassen" did not include Amuro. NHK stated that it was continuing to get the singer on the program, especially since it would be her last opportunity to make an appearance.
This will be Amuro's first time performing on "Kohaku Uta Gassen" in over a decade. Her last appearance was in 2003.
Amuro will be retiring from the entertainment industry on September 16, 2018.
