This years audition started off with the 29 candidates showing off their singing abilities at Matsukuma Kenta’s Scrambles Studio in Fukuoka. The candidates are made up of 22 successful applicants, 4 of which passed the last minute audition held the day before, and 7 members of WAgg, making a total of 29 candidates.

As before, all new candidates are given names parodying those of current WACK members. Click here to see their respective names and pictures.

The singing evaluation took a total of 4 hours and the ranking is as follows:

  1. Taiyou no Lion / 太陽ノライオン
  2. Gomiya Gaki / ゴミヤ・ガキ
  3. Kiiroko Vampire / キイロコ・バンパイア

  20. Gan Maika / ギャン・マイカ

  22. Momochi Hama Company / モモチハマカンパニー (Dropped out)

Due to coming in last place for not knowing the words and her attitude, it was announced that Momochi Hama Company will be eliminated (but she was later allowed to continue onto the training camp). Just after this stage Gan Maika decided to leave the audition of her own accord. This all prompted a tweet from Matsukuma Kenta.

The rest of the day was spent travelling from mainland Japan to Iki island, where the training camp is held. Once they arrived at the lodgings, Watanabe set out the rules for this years audition.

The candidates were then divided into dance teams to practice “BiSH-Hoshi ga Matataku Yoru ni” to be performed the next morning.  The teams are as follows:

The candidates then had free time to practice while Watanabe held one-on-one interviews. Dinner was served at 7:35pm – this time there is no death sauce due to it’s adverse affects on the candidates last year. After this, a WACK general knowledge quiz was held before today’s results were announced.
