Hoshino Gen cancels performance on NTV's "Best Artist 2016" due to illness caused by fatigue

Hoshino Gen announced via his official website and Twitter on 29 November that he will not be appearing on NTV's annual music programme "Best Artist 2016" on the same night. The statement revealed that Hoshino became sick due to fatigue so it was decided that he could not perform up to standard and had to quit from the show at the last minute. He also apologised for disappointing the viewers who are looking forward to the performance and everyone for causing worry and inconveniences but asked for understanding of his situation.

"Best Artist" is NTV's year-end signature music show which is broadcast live via Makuhari Messe for four hours from 7pm. Hoshino has been busy with various projects such as filming for TBS Autumn 2016 drama "Nigeru wa haji daga yaku ni tatsu", NHK's "LIFE! ~ Jinsei ni sasageru konto ~", NHK Taiga drama "Sanadamaru" and Nippon Housou radio show "Hoshino Gen no All Night Nippon" and is due to appear on the NHK Kouhaku Utagassen on New Year's Eve. This is not the first time that Hoshino had to take a break from work due to illness as he was also absent from his radio show on 19 September this year.
