An uber cool but also hilarious performance of the top vocalist of SNH48's 1st team & her several teammates (as her back dancers) at the team's theater performance today:



She's the oldest member of the group (as well as all the SNHG groups). :)

[EDIT]
Some cool stills/offshots from an upcoming historical movie set in the Republican Period (between the Qing Dynasty & the communist era) starring the captain of SNH48's 1st team, the ace of BEJ48's 2nd team, & the captain of GNZ48's 2nd team, posted on this page of a Japanese fansite today (click the pics to view them in their original large sizes; the last two pics show them posing w/ the production crew & other cast members):

[Re: The latter part of the preceding post] The article on that linked page has now been edited w/ two more pics added at the end, which feature the movie's prop of a newspaper w/ ads containing inside jokes on those two BEJ48/GNZ48 members starring in the movie, hence those last two pics I mentioned have now respectively become the 3rd & 4th last pics instead.

[EDIT 1]
As the announcement of the final results of the current SNHG General Election is coming near, several SNH48 members from their various teams, led by the captain of their 5th team, have interviewed the residents from all walks of life around their home city, including a German expat & a cat, =^_^= XD on their personal dreams - it's produced by a local paper:



^ Note that that nurse is actually also their 2nd-team member - that's why they're embracing each other when they met at her hospital. :)

[EDIT 2]
^ Japanese fans around Tokyo cheering for the candidates of the election:



^ Note that that ad truck for the election is demonstrating going around Akiba, the home district of AKB48, again this year. :P

^ Regarding the election, the members of BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48 have now all descended from the north & south onto Shanghai to have joint rehearsals w/ SNH48 starting tomorrow for its upcoming final results announcement event/concert. The theater performances of all the four groups this week have all been canceled for that, the event itself, & the related events/activities on the day before the event & the couple of days after it. Before their dispatching to the SNHG capital, all those three groups had their despatching ceremonies at their respective exclusive theaters, in which they received blessings, well-wishings, & cheerings from their fans, who also escorted them to the airports - there're tons of footage of those, but I'm not gonna link them here. :)

The comedian of SNH48's 2nd team cosplaying the character Joan of Arc, w/ her rendition of their stage number about the historical figure playing in the background:



^ My only criticism is that it's too short. lol

It's quite possible that she, currently ranked #2, will get the #1 position in their current General Election. :)

[EDIT 3]
[Re: The 1st part of this post] This very brief private video of a prominent member of SNH48's 1st team, posted by herself today, can give you a glimpse of the scale of the rehearsals there:

The floor plan of the vote-thanking handshaking event to be jointly held by SNH48, BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48 on the couple of days immediately after the SNHG General Election final results announcement event - I'm not gonna explain the floor plan here, as it's just for you to get an idea on the scale of the event:

https://newsimg.48.cn/2017/0727/20170727045034854.jpg

^ At just a glance, can you tell where the most or more popular SNHG members are assigned on the floor plan? :)

This one showing some SHY48 members performing a 48 Group ritual there:

[EDIT]
Have omitted to post this footage of a spectacular, carnival-like joint performance of a familiar number by all the current three teams of GNZ48 during their despatching ceremony at their exclusive theater a few days ago, just before their heading to Shanghai for the SNHG General Election final results announcement event/concert:



The group is expected to perform well in the election. :)

Another one showing them rehearsing there:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDgy ... 0xce81.jpg

^ They're using the bottles as mics. lol

A view of the upper part of the stage at the actual venue of that event:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 11x1bb.jpg

^ Can you see that "pirate ship" hanging just above the words "SNH48"? :)

The lower part of that stage, shot during the warming-up concert tonight for that event/concert tomorrow:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 0zkdyo.jpg

All the various teams of BEJ48, GNZ48, & SHY48 performing the staple 48 Group ritual together, w/ their captains & deputy captains inside the circle (SNH48 didn't appear in that concert) - already looks pretty spectacular even tho the five teams of SNH48 weren't there: :ohmy:

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 11xwvm.jpg

A farther view of that, which also shows a same-sized sub-stage at the front:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 11xdsq.jpg

From another angle:

https://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/006c5eFZgy ... 0zkh5p.jpg

Yet another angle & from farther, showing more parts of the huge stage complex:

https://wx3.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 0xcww4.jpg

The warming-up concert also served as a testing ground for the stage complex before the main event tomorrow. :)

An inaccuracy in what I said in the above quote: all those captains & deputy captains are actually the ones of SNH48's five teams, altho their teams weren't there - a footage of that ritual at the end of the concert:



[EDIT 1]
A funny footage of the group ace of GNZ48 arriving at the venue of those events of today & tomorrow mentioned in the preceding post, to join the others for the rehearsals of those events there (she was late due to her movie/drama shootings in other parts of the country at the previous night), & masquerading as a staff to see whether her group-mates would recognize her - while a few did, many didn't: XD

http://p.weibo.com/show/channerWbH5/103 ... ed843de807

As seen near the end of the footage, she's well-loved by her group-mates. :)

[EDIT 2]
The 2nd team of SHY48, which's the newest team among the current 13 teams in all the SNHG groups, performing a nice stage number at that above-mentioned concert tonight:

The final results of the SNHG General Election, announced tonight:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 2kxu0x.jpg

^ Some 1st observations:

- No change of the top three positions from the last election, lol but the votes of the #1 & #2 are relatively close, & as I recall, both have already surpassed their counterparts in the AKBG election last month.

- The "God 7" positions are (finally) entirely occupied by members of SNH48's 2nd team, w/ the highest position of their 1st team being #8 (#6 in the last election, got by the same member of the team - their deputy captain).

- BEJ48 have fought back since the announcement of the interim results & outdone GNZ48 again after the last election, w/ their highest position being #13 (even higher than the one in the last election), got by their group ace (who doubles as the captain of their 1st team), while GNZ48's is #23, got by the captain of their 2nd team. And while no one has expected the current newest group SHY48 to perform better than either groups, they've still done pretty badly, w/ their highest position being #37, got by their group ace, who's also their only member being ranked! :(

There're many more observations/analyses, of course, but dunno if I'd have the time to post them here in due course - that's it for now. :)

A video preview of that exclusive theater, hosted by a senior exec of SNHG & shown at the concert:



[EDIT 1]
BTW, the leftmost man at the middle in the pic linked in the above quote is one of the four hosts of the event (the other three are seen at the left), who's a commentator of the state TV, a professor of a renowned university, & a host of a major satellite TV station. :)

According to this line in their official report on the election's final results announcement event/concert:

Quote:
今年的入围成员的得票总数,全体参选成员的得票总数和登顶成员的个人得票数,均创造了全球偶像团体同类活动的最高纪录

^ Both the total number of votes for the elected members & that for all the running members, as well as the number of votes for the #1-ranked member, have set the world records of the same type of activities held by idol groups.

A couple of pics featuring two very differently styled members of SHY48's 1st team at their respective handshaking booths of the four-SNHG-group joint vote-thanking handshaking event today (the 1st day of the two-day event):

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 2304fa.jpg

^ What a cute baby face! =^_^=

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/006yUouDly ... 230tno.jpg

^ What a cool foxy face! :cool:

What's amazing is that they're colleagues in the same group & team. :oh:

[EDIT 1]
A media report on yesterday's event mentioned in the preceding posts:



^ It's pretty notable that all those seven (the "God 7") at the front during the press meeting are members of SNH48's 2nd team - depending on one's position, that can be an exciting or sad moment in their history, but it's now beyond doubt that the dynasty of Team NII has already come. :)

[EDIT 2]
^ Another, shorter media report, w/ different footage from the event:

^ Ah, they're holding the group's official cheering towel in the pics. :)

The flight attendant has graduated from a university of aviation just recently. :)

The trailers of three movies of pretty different genres, all starring various SNHG members & produced by their own production company, shown at that General Election concert a few days ago:

Promotion images of the current top three ranking SNHG/SNH48 members elected in their latest General Election, appearing around the home city of SNH48: lol

[EDIT 1]
Have come across w/ this nice pic of a prominent member of BEJ48's 1st team posing at her handshaking booth during the four-SNHG-group joint vote-thanking handshaking event lately:

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/005XMeCEgy ... 2dcdsw.jpg

I always like the Beijinger's big eyes. :cool:

[EDIT 2]
In this brief fan-shot video, you can clearly see the solidarity of SNH48's 2nd team when the ranking position of one of the team's member, who's not even a prominent one, was announced at that SNHG General Election event lately - the current domination of the team in the group/SNHG isn't w/o reason:

This selfie taken by a 2nd-team member of SNH48 can give you a feel of the perspective of the venue from the nearly 300 SNHG members sitting below the stage complex at its both sides during the announcement of the final results of their General Election lately:

http://wx4.sinaimg.cn/large/daade983gy1 ... 0zk10g.jpg

^ BTW, both members, who weren't elected in the election, are veterans of the team, w/ the left & right ones being a 2.5th- & a 2nd-generation members respectively. The right one, who posted the pic today (actually after midnight on the next day), is also a professional nurse. :)

^ A cool performance of a solo song by that nurse at a theater performance of the team today, w/ the back dancing support by a couple of her teammates from later generations:



^ I always like the local Shanghainese's fuller body figure. :cool:

She often picks up her newbie teammates for a free ride while driving to work (it'd be even harder for her to handle her double jobs as an idol & a nurse w/o a car). :)

And in the capital of Japan - the West Entrance of the Shinjuku Station, which's the busiest transportation hub in Tokyo:

https://wx2.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0vz7e0.jpg

^ It's added w/ Japanese words.

https://wx1.sinaimg.cn/large/a04b2a1dgy ... 0vzgw5.jpg

^ It's showing the video footage (w/ sound) of the deputy captain of SNH48's 2nd team making her speech after her final elected position was announced - that & other footage/images of the top three elected members are continuously rolling from 5:00 am to 12:00 mn every day over there at present.

I've been wondering if SNHG would be invited to perform at the Tokyo Olympics in 2020, in which AKBG will certainly do, as their boss is a member of that event's organizing committee, but considering his very membership in that committee & the current relations between the two 48G groups, I'm pretty certain that it won't happen, not to mention their performing together there. :lol:

Their performing, for the very 1st time, the theme of the election at the end of the concert, led by the group ace of SNH48, who's ranked #1 in the election:


An MV for that theme, which melody comes from a song of the Australian Christian rock band Hillsong UNITED, w/ various footage from both that concert & the election final results announcement event right after it, including some nice behind-the-scenes ones, released today:



The lyrics of the theme are co-written by the captain of SNH48's 3rd team, who's already written/co-written the lyrics of several such themes of SNHG for years, & a member of GNZ48's 2nd team. :)

[EDIT]
^ Ah, those two pics shown after the MV feature the top three ranking & "God 7" SNHG members returned from their latest General Election, respectively.

Some backstage pics of a prominent member of SHY48's 1st team, shot at their exclusive theater during the team's regular performance there:

The stylish "foxy lady" is also their "fashion queen." :)

[EDIT]
A private video featuring various interesting behind-the-scenes footage from the shootings of the MV for SNHG's current summer single in Australia earlier this year, shot & compiled by a prominent member of SNH48's 3rd team, who also participated in that MV & single, & posted by her tonight:
