It could have been Dick Clark’s “rocking” New Year’s Eve show, a Japanese version, until the moment on nationwide TV that dozens of backup singers and dancers suddenly appeared nude.

A Japanese hip hop perfomance of song that continually implored “Bounce with Me” took an unexpected turn just after the two-minute mark with the females doffing their tops and then their bottoms and the men also stripping to their undies. The wild performance continued for another minute or so, followed by a host’s giggling and then a kind of apology.

The females certainly appeared nude but a Reuters’ report suggests that perhaps it was an illusion: “A troupe of dancers in skin-colored body suits had Japanese national broadcaster NHK apologizing to viewers of its New Year’s Eve music special for what seemed to be a full-scale Janet Jackson-style wardrobe malfunction.

“The dancers, who all appeared to be topless and wore skimpy bikini-style bottoms and feathered head-dresses, covered the stage during a performance by singer DJ OZMA, prompting about 250 viewers to phone in and complain. ‘The dancers were wearing body suits, but we apologize for any misunderstanding,’ a presenter announced.

“‘I guess it looked a bit too real,’ local media quoted the singer as telling reporters after the show, which regularly tops viewer ratings on New Year’s Eve in Japan.”
