A little more national exposure is always nice.

Wow. That sounds like it could be awesome. I didn't think she was that popular but it sure sounds like a big deal about being invited. Still, that sounds like it would be awesome to see.

For people who are not familiar with this program, here's the wiki entry.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kōhaku_Uta_Gassen

"Kōhaku, is an annual music show on the New Year's Eve produced by Japanese public broadcaster NHK and broadcast on both television and radio, nationally and internationally by NHK's networks and some overseas (mainly cable) broadcasters which bought the program. The show ends shortly before midnight"

"The honor of performing on Kōhaku is strictly by invitation, so only the most successful J-Pop artists and enka singers can perform. In addition to the actual music performances, the costumes, hair-styles, makeup, dancing, and lighting are also important. Even today, a performance on Kōhaku is said to be a big highlight in a singer's career because of the show's large reach."
