BABYMETAL just performed on TV for the first time in well over 3 years. They performed a short version of PA PA YA!! (without F. Hero’s rap), but the Kami Band did not play (they mimicked, like the BABYBONES)… in fact, other than the clothing being the Kami Band clothing from this year, we aren’t sure if any of them were Kami Band members at all! (be it Japanese or otherwise).
Another thing of note is that they didn’t talk with the presenter at all, they just appeared on stage and it cut back to the presenter, which is generally not what happens at this show (including BM’s previous appearances).
See the video of the performance below, along with other information.
- PA PA YA!! (short ver. – without rap)
? Still hard to distinguish them, but they definitely were mimicking (BABYBONES style), and by the instruments it doesn’t appear to be anyone we already know.
Venue: Roppongi TV Asahisha
Theme: Special Edition “60th Anniversary” of the opening of TV Asahi. It’s called “TV Asahi’s 60th Anniversary Music Station Ultra SUPER LIVE 2019

Compare this to their previous performances in 2014 (x2), 2015, and 2016 (x2), which you can see here.
A small glimpse of the girls walking on stage:
Momoka enjoyed BABYMETAL’s performance, especially MOAMETAL’s (no surprise there, she is a good friend of hers)
