the most exciting vote just started in Japan

AKB48 – the name of an all girl Japanese pop group rings a bell for you?  The group started with daily live performances in Akihabara – home to many Japanese pop cultures.  Now this is one of the most popular pop groups. 

 This group has an interesting event to attract public attention every year.  That is called ‘general election’.  About 48 members (wow! too many)ask their fans to vote for the most favorite one.  And chosen only top 10  and something can appear on TV.  The member who wins the first place can sing in the center of the stage.  So the result is very important for them.  Last year the top changed, which surprised fans and made the ‘election’ a big news in Japan.   This year’s voting just started.  The result will be released on June 9.
