BroadcastEdit

On December 18, 2012, NHK announced it will broadcast Kōhaku live using ultra-high-definition television technology from two locations: Tokyo Tower and at NHK's Yokohama station.[2] NHK first used UHDTV for a Kōhaku during its 57th event in 2006.

JudgesEdit

Special GuestsEdit

Korean performances non-existentEdit

The 63rd event is faced with controversy over the non-existence of acts from South Korea[16] In one source, it is suspected that government-funded NHK avoided inviting Korean acts because of the territorial disputes over Liancourt Rocks between the South Korean and Japanese governments. Sports Chosun reported on a statement made by an NHK representative. "The fact that President Lee Myung Bak has demanded an apology is a great factor. After this incident occurred, there have been more and more hallyu stars who have stated that 'Dokdo is ours.' Considering this, viewers might have ill feelings about the K-pop stars appearing," said the NHK representative.[17]
