to all the members that made it in. Final rankings will be released
during the event itself, on the evening of 31/12/2016.Due
to Yabuki Nako (HKT48) and Tanaka Miku (HKT48) being too young to
perform at AKB48′s designated slot, they will be replaced by Kitagawa
Ryoha (SKE48) and Souda Sarina (SKE48). Tanaka and Yabuki will instead
be slated to perform with enka singer Tendo Yoshimi at an earlier slot
during the event itself.
