Morning Musume 11th gen auditions announced

Morning Musume announced at their concert that the group will be having additions for the 11th generation titled Morning Musume 11th Generation ~Suppin Utahime~ Auditions (Makeup-less Songstress Auditions.

Tsunku come out on stage and revealed that the auditions were open. He also mentioned that the title of the auditions is important as he is focusing more on the talents of the girls auditioning rather than how they look. With that being said, I hope this generation will be filled with talented girls who can add more talent to the group and give MM a strong talent base.

An official site has been opened for girls to submit their applications until June 25th, and girls aged 10 to 17 can apply for the audition. In addition to that, Tsunku also left a message about the auditions and announcement made.

It hasn’t been confirmed how many girls will be chosen, although with the streak of 4 girls per generation it seems like Tsunku really likes that number (4th, 5th, and 6th generations also had 4 members added). If we do get 4, the number of girls will jump to 14, and as Tsunku said in the past, MM will never be as big as they once were at 16 members after the addition of the 6th gen members so maybe he’ll keep the numbers low for this generation, but who knows?

With so many members being added, I feel like Tsunku needs to slow down and allow the current members to get settled and steady because when Sayu and Reina leave the group will be full of girls under the age of 17 or so, and that’s difficult for the new girls as they have a lot to learn and the only real steady members who know the ropes is the 9th gen, an having 8 girls to teach things to is probably stressful for them.

Anyways good luck to the girls auditioning! Unlike the last 2 auditions I’m going to pay attention and update on it frequently.
