TEPPEN 2015 – AKB48’s Matsui Sakiko vs. HKT48’s Moriyasu Madoka RECAP



It’s the AKB48G competition that everyone has been waiting for in the New Year and that is AKB48’s Matsui Sakiko vs. HKT48’s Moriyasu Madoka.

Moriyasu did a magnificent job with her performance earning 91 points.

The two have squared off before with Matsui winning the matchup. Matsui had to beat Moriyasu’s 91 points, so Matsui Sakiko performed “Let it Go” but the technicality in her performance, which she used to play the song was enough to win the judges favor.

Matsui was able to defeat Moriyasu’s 91 points by achieving 94 points. But there was one more competitor left…Matsui’s piano rival…Sayuri

The winner…


HKT48’s Moriyasu Madoka’s new CM


There’s no denying that HKT48 member Moriyasu Madoka is getting a big push. From her being selected as a member to perform on “Kibouteki Refrain” and also joining in competition with Matsui Sakiko in a piano competition on “Teppen 2015”, now she has her own commercial.
