    Wow... AKB48 on the Same Team as TWICE- lol. Keyakizaki (EMO Moody) & Nogizaki46 (Positive & Fluffy)beat out SKE48, NMB48, NGT48, HKT48, STU48 for a spot?...Guess we know where AKI-P's interest lie.

    Except Aki-P doesn't decide the line up. Sakamichi groups are more popular right now, hence the inclusion. Also... yes AKB and Twice are on the same team considering they're both girl groups and that's the way Kouhaku works...

    Just take into account that there are better vocalists than twice that are on the same team, like Nishino Kana, E-girls, super fly and etc..
