A 「cute」 and 「cool」 avaracious countdown!

SCANDAL, who joyously celebrated their 10th anniversary, served as countdown artists! They opened from a powerful shot of sound with "Shunkan Sentimental" as MAMI's guitar solo further guided HARUNA's maddening melodies. They led into "Taiyou Scandalous" with 「Everyone, sing with all your might!!」. Their ensemble that grew sharply and stoutly was wonderful.

As RINA's high-quality snare and MAMI's distorted guitar riffs cut off "DOLL," they continued into "LOVE SURVIVE" where TOMOMI sang and played her bass with a driving feeling. HARUNA looked back at their past 3 performances on the GALAXY STAGE and RINA conveyed their gratitude to the gathered audience before jumping into an emotional frenzy with "Awanai Tsumori no, Genki de ne" and "FREEDOM FIGHTERS."

After "SCANDAL BABY," HARUNA prepared their thoughts for 2017 by playing one chorus of "Image." At last, the final moments approached. They made announcements about their best album 『SCANDAL』 out on 2017/02/15, and laughed and spoke about their New Year's resolutions: 「Rearrange my room」 (TOMOMI), 「Live healthily」 (MAMI), 「Travel a lot」 (RINA), 「Make tons of friends」 (HARUNA). Their well-done countdown started: "3, 2, 1, zero!!" Streamers fluttered down among the cheers as the moment of excitement was greeted.

Everyone danced to the showy "Take Me Out," and finally they closed with a cute, rocking finish with "EVERYBODY SAY YEAH!" where MAMI calls out for a call and response. It felt like they poured one year's worth of energy into a countdown live that only SCANDAL could do. The best.
