SNSD Performs ‘Gee’ with SMAP’s Nakai Masahiro







On December 24th, Girls’ Generation made a special appearance at a SMAP concert in Sapporo, Japan. SMAP is a long-running popular Japanese boy band, which debuted in the early 1990′s. Nakai Masahiro, the leader of SMAP, held a short talk segment with Girls’ Generation before he and the members of Girls’ Generation performed the Japanese version of “Gee” together. In celebration of the holidays, Nakai put a Christmas spin on the performance by leaving in the middle of the song to don a Santa Claus outfit  before joining Girls’ Generation once again. Girls’ Generation’s performance with Nakai was broadcasted on “SMAPxSMAP”, a Japanese variety show starring the members of SMAP.

Nakai Masahiro has performed several parodies of Girls’ Generation songs in the past on “SMAPxSMAP”, presenting his own versions of “Gee“, “Genie“, and “MR. TAXI“.

Nice to see that SMAP is still supporting Hallyu artists!

Nicer that Sunny's wave isn't horribly offensive.

Sunny isn't there.

I thought Sunny was the one with the long dark hair...

Really, how could I mistake THAT face.

Sigh.

Bad fan.

This performance was a hot mess. Do they ever not lipsynch in Japan? Actual question btw. Sunny mus be singing really loud from Korea or w/e she was.
Whatever, the holy trinity looks gorgeous, as always.

SNSD's Japanese is not as good as Boa or DBSK. It's a shame because I really want to see SNSD sing live :\

I've only found three performances where they don't lipsync. I found about three others with some live but very loud backtrack. After a lot of studying, some perfs have some girls mumbling with the backtrack, where you can almost hear them singing. Not really live though in my book.

Live with loud backtrack; 1, 2, 3.
Actually live; 1, 2, 3

A vast majority are synced as you know but to answer your question, there's a very select few not. Incredibly disappointing imo. All of their lives in 2012 have been synced, iirc? I think so anyway.

I bet yoona absolutely died and went to heaven cuz she got to meet kimutaku
ullielvidina 25th-Dec-2012 01:05 am (UTC)
Reminds me of Hello Baby. She blatantly showed her fangirl side for KimuTaku
eishastan 25th-Dec-2012 09:44 pm (UTC)
He's so fugly tho.. i question her taste tbqh.
pumpkinskin 26th-Dec-2012 12:28 am (UTC)
lol yeah he kinda looks leathery nowadays but goddamn he was fine when he was younger.

Oh btw are you getting all 10 versions of the upcoming album? You were the first person to pop in my head when the news was announced. I was like "Oh dayum, they are gonna bankrupt eishastan"
gray_fairy 26th-Dec-2012 11:31 am (UTC)
He looks old nowadays but he used to be gorgeous not so long ago. I still find him attractive tho.
scribblyness_x 25th-Dec-2012 01:07 am (UTC)

redgreendress 25th-Dec-2012 02:53 am (UTC)

Every time SNSD performs Gee I smile because I know a part of Taeyeon's soul dies.
b1gay4 25th-Dec-2012 07:15 pm (UTC)
bc of the girl that covered it??
eishastan 25th-Dec-2012 09:46 pm (UTC)
She doesn't like cutesy concepts, she also kinda hates Oh!
funkaliciousss 26th-Dec-2012 02:25 pm (UTC)
taeyeon is a stuck up bitch that thinks she's too cool for cutesy stuff.
obeytheempress 26th-Dec-2012 03:51 am (UTC)
Lol me too, though I would hope that at this point she's resigned to it and is able to just enjoy the crowd's reactions
lee_chikin 25th-Dec-2012 07:51 pm (UTC)
Seemed more awesome than it actually was imo. Coould have given him some singing lines or integrated some lyrics from SMAP songs in Gee.
