Miku Hatsune Dominates London Olympics Poll

by Jib 14 Comments 14 Votes 3819 Views 26/07/2012 Back to Articles
Last year polling website The-Top-Tens asked everyone which music artist they would like to see perform at the London Olympic opening ceremonies. Whether it was intentional or later requested by a voter, virtual super-idol Miku Hatsune was included as an option.

Within a few days, she climbed the ranks from #50 to #2, close behind Korean Zombie idol group Super Junior. The owners then removed her from the poll, deciding (with their narrow gaijin minds) she was an unsuitable candidate. They quickly brought her back, though, after the site became flooded with comments in support of Miku.

Several months and 935,000 votes later, the poll has become the most popular on their whole site. Now Miku sits at #1 with almost 122,000 votes and a comfortable lead.

1. Hatsune Miku
2. Super Junior
3. BIGBANG
4. SHINee
5. Girls' Generation
6. JYJ
7. One Direction
8. 2NE1
9. Lady Gaga
10. B2ST


Miku: "Bring it."

While this isn't exactly news, and the chances of Miku actually appearing at the Olympics are next to none, it is very impressive to see a 2D representative outperforming the very best of 3D - especially when it's to non-Japanese voters. Below are some of the top rated comments left by voters.

"I think she could really show the world what the technology can do day by day. It would be so interesting of see She is the world's virtual diva, and the world has to know it"

"Hatsune Miku has to sing at the Olympics because it's time for a change. She will be the first hologram performer ever at the Olympics, she's amazing and she just has to be there!"

"Revolutionary performer. The grace in her voice and emotion is unparalleled to any other musical acts. She is the only suitable candidate for such a grand show. Leaving her out would lead to catastrophic results. Quite literally too. You will find out if Hatsune Miku is not chosen. I'm sure you've caught onto the implications here."



After holding several very successful holographic performances in Japan, Miku made her U.S concert debut last year at Anime Expo 2011. Tickets were quickly sold out to eager gaijin Vocaloid fanatics. You can read more about the concert here.

They have people sing at the opening ceremony?

I cannot remember anyone doing this :S

Or maybe it's cause they just never used anyone I knew about before.

Nikki Webster?

STRAWBERRY KISSES?!
Oh right haha.

I guess I never took notice because they mostly choose relatively unknown people to me. :P

This would be kinda cool though, obviously I'm not a fan of the music but the tech behind this would be awesome.
Didn't Jackie Chan sing at the Chinese one as well? You disappoint mang, disappoint :'@

But yeah, it's be cool, but no chance :P
I turned 18 just before the last Olympics, I had higher priorities than the opening ceremony :P

Also, **** you for getting Strawberry Kisses stuck in my head =_=
I'm listening to it as well [Rage]
Aoi

Kakatte koi yo, aniki.
