Morning Musume(モーニング娘。) reveals 10th generation members!

On Thursday, Morning Musume(モーニング娘。)  held a concert at Nippon Budokan(日本武道館) as part of their current tour, which will end with a second Budokan concert on Friday. While leader Takahashi Ai(高橋愛) will graduate from the group at the end of the tour, four new members are being added as part of the group’s 10th generation.

The 10th generation audition was held this summer, attracting approximately 6,000 applicants. Out of that competitive field, 4 members were selected, and they were revealed on stage during Morning Musume’s concert on Thursday.
