Hey! Say! BEST – The Biggest Thrill Round Four (Final)

Hello everyone!! It’s time for the final round of The Biggest Thrill starring Hey! Say! BEST so I hope you’re all excited!! Let’s dive right into it!

Best Vocals:

+ Yabu: Actually…not my favorite delivery of his. He sounded kind of out of breath so he didn’t nail this line like he usually does, which is a shame since it’s one of my favorite parts of te whole song. Not bad though.

+ Hikaru: On the other hand, Hikaru sounded good like his usual standard. I liked it.

+ Takaki: Takaki always nails his lines and this time is no different. He’s still carrying sexy like no other!

+ Daiki: Sounded awesome. Should have a solo line.

+ Kei: Same as Daiki.

Winner: Arioka Daiki and Inoo Kei

Best Dancer:

+ Daiki: Awesome as always. He’s always so slick with his moves and my eyes always go straight to him during Suriru performances.

+ Hikaru: A little sloppy…he could have made some of the moves look more sleek but he probably would have done better with a headset instead of a microphone.

+ Yabu: He looked very concentrated on the dancing and did a good job although there were points when he could have done better.

+ Kei: I love how Kei just makes everything looks so simple and cool. He definitely nailed the dance moves with ease. He owned the hip roll.

+ Takaki: A little slow on the steps but still a good job.

Winner: Arioka Daiki

Best Overall Look:

+ Takaki: Well everyone is wearing the same thing so basically this category depends on hair and whatnot. I’m not feeling Takaki’s hair here…just no…

+ Kei: Kei looks absolutely fantastic!! This might be his best look in a Suriru performance. His hair is hot and really suits his face perfectly.

+ Hikaru: Hikaru looks good and for some reason the combination of his hair and outfit catches my eye. Good job Hikaru!

+ Daiki: How can Daiki be kawaii and kakkoi at the same time? I don’t think it can be explained. He’s looking hot and adorable, a dangerous combination. Hair looks awesome.

+ Yabu: Not feeling Yabu’s hair…I still think it looks better when it’s black…hope he’s planning on dying it back soon…

Winner: Arioka Daiki and Inoo Kei

Special Moments:

00:53 -> Daiki being epically cool
01:10 -> Because Kei-chan looks especially good here
01:18 -> Takaki doing sexy hehe
02:23 -> Kei-chan looks so happy after he turns! Kawaii!!
02:55 -> Kei-chan is coming for ya!
03:30 -> Takaki blows a kiss! Hotness

It’s not my favorite performance of the song…no shirtlessness [WTF?!!!!!!] and the dancing could have better. Actually, Yabu looked a little bored throughout the performance. Perhaps he was going for the cool look? Anyway…

First Place: Arioka Daiki (+5)
Second Place: Inoo Kei (+4)
Third Place: Takaki Yuya (+ 3)
Fourth Place: Yabu Kota (+Β 2)
Fifth Place: Yaotome Hikaru (+1)

Congratulations Dai-chan!!! Kei-chan was a really close second so he should be proud too!!! There was supposed to be another round but I couldn’t find it on youtube (probably taken down). So the results will be posted soon!!



  1. you know this is the only performance of this song that i’ve seen. it made me realize that daiki is a really good dancer though.

    • Not the best one but it was okay I guess…I would recommend a different one…like the one in red or the one from their 1st tour πŸ™‚

      and yeah, Daiki is suchhhhh a good dancer!

  2. Once again, nice thrill
    Arioka-kun always wins when it comes to dancing :]
    By the way…
    Inoo-kun and Arioka-kun get more solo lines in different songs now!
    congrats (off-topic)

  3. @brandon: You definitely should! The one from the first concert was the one that hooked me and the red one just made me go WOW! [and not just because of the shirtlessness] hehe.

    And this is precisely why he needs more attention! So everyone can know it!!

    @Kaname Fujiwara: I know!! He’s suchhh a good dancer!!!
    That’s true, especially Daiki so hopefully it’s only the start πŸ™‚

    • oh you know the shirtlessness makes you flail XD

      yeah it’s why in groups this big album suffles and things like that are important.

      • hahaaha GUILTY!!!

        Agreed. And as we can see, very good things come out of those shuffles πŸ™‚
        Now if only they would release something together…

  4. or seperately! at this point i’d take something from a smaller subgroup that didn’t involve maybe debuted johnnys XD

    and i haven’t even been a fan that long. i can only imagine how you guys must feel.

    • you mean like Kis-My-Ft2 or another non-debuted group?
      I would seriously love a Hey! Say! BEST mini album…if V6 can do it then it’s not totally out of the question…

      LOL, I got into them in July of last year so a few more months and that was their last single for a while XD

      OMG it sucks!!!!
      Johnny has really done a bad job of release scheduling this year…much better last year.

      • a best mini album would be good. it seems like the best members sing less than the 7 members. or maybe that’s because there are so many of them. or maybe i’m just insane :-/

        i guess i’ve been into johnnys in general since like april.

        yeah 2008 had better songs too…but i could be biased because i’m listening to musekinin hero right now.

  5. Well for Hey! Say! 7 it’s like Yamada + Chinen + Yuto
    Hey! Say! BEST -> Yabu + Hikaru + Takaki

    then there are two who sing less…hmmm…

    A Hey! Say! BEST mini album would be amazing!! Suriru + School Days + Switch + Spicy and whatever other songs they have and then they include some new solos as the limited second disc πŸ™‚

    Or they could shoot PVs…OMG, Suriru PV!!!!

    So you’ve been in the fandom for almost half a year! Congrats!!
    If only groups besides Arashi were more active XD

    2008 >>>>>>>> 2009

    Hey! Say! JUMP released 3 AWESOME singles, each one better than the last
    NEWS released Taiyou no Namida and SUMMER TIME, which are both amazing
    Kinki Kids released Secret Code
    Arashi released One Love [2nd favorite song by them after Everything]
    V6 released sooo many good songs!!

    This year was like Arashi and KAT-TUN time at the beginning of the year then KAT-TUN released their album and stopped…Arashi kept going…NEWS and Kinki Kids had a single…V6 is now getting on track with releasing their 2nd single of the year…SMAP and TOKIO are releasing their 1st…Kanjani8 had an album but that was forever ago and Hey! Say! JUMP did nothing…well a DVD but you know…

    Here’s to hoping 2010 is more fair!

  6. yuto and hikaru aren’t really guaranteed lines are they? like say chinen is?
    they have a song called spicy? like curry? haha i’m an idiot ignore me XD
    but solos for each member would be nice, that way when they sing together it’d be easier to pick out their voices.

    i very vaguely remember when taiyou no namida came out because i thought it would be like namida no taiyou but than i found out it wasn’t so i late it past by so i’ll have to listen to that too.

    but kat-tun had one drop and rescue didn’t they? or were they in 2008?

    also there’s still lots of 2009 left! i’m keeping hope alive! lol.

    • Thinking about the singles, they have parts in all the songs I think…I don’t know so much about new songs since I haven’t been following too closely…
      LOL, they have so many S songs! But yeah, they have a song called Spicy! I can’t remember how it goes though LOL
      Agreed! I would love a Kei-chan solo!!!

      Taiyou no Namida is their best A-side in my opinion. SUMMER TIME is awesomeness as well πŸ™‚

      yeah, those were this year πŸ™‚

      I’m hoping the last quarter makes up for the first three…hope is all we have now XD

  7. “01:18 -> Takaki doing sexy hehe”
    Call me crazy, but sometimes, I just watch the video for that second of Takaki. Actually, I think I start to considering him my favorite after that ❀

    • hahaha totally understandable!!
      He can definitely bring the sexy πŸ™‚
