Forty-eight") is a Japanese girl group. It originally consisted of 48 members, divided into 3 teams of 16 members each, named A, K and B. The girls range in age from early teens to mid-20s. Produced by Yasushi Akimoto, it is one of the highest-earning musical acts in the world, with 2011 record sales of over US$200 million in Japan. It has achieved such popularity in Japan that it has been characterized as a social phenomenon.As of January 2013, the group's seventeen latest singles topped the Oricon Weekly Singles Chart. In 2010, "Beginner" and "Heavy Rotation" placed, respectively, first and second in the list of Japan's best selling singles for the year. In 2011 and 2012 AKB48's singles occupied the top five spots of the Oricon Yearly Singles Chart. The band has sold over 20 million CDs, and holds the record for most singles sold in Japan by a female group.AKB48 is named after Akihabara (Akiba for short), the area in Tokyo where the group's theater is located. The idea of AKB48's producer Yasushi Akimoto was to create a girl group that, unlike a regular pop group, which gives occasional concerts and that is mostly seen on TV, would have its own theater and perform there on a daily basis; the fans would always be able to go and see the girls live. AKB48 still performs at the theater every day; tickets are now distributed only via a lottery.AKB48 holds the Guinness World Record for the "Largest pop group". As of April 2013, the group consists of 88 girls, divided into three subgroups: Team A and Team K with 21 members each and Team B with 22 members, as well as a number of aspiring members, who are grouped as kenkyūsei ("trainees"). The member lineup often changes as when girls get older, they "graduate" from the group, while new members are cast through regularly held auditions. Having several teams not only allows the group to reduce the load on its members, since a daily concert at the theater is given by only one team, but also gives AKB48 the ability to perform in several places and even countries simultaneously.Given the large number of members in the group, AKB48 uses two selection methods to determine who will record a single and perform it on TV. So far, two big selection events are held annually. One is selected by fans who vote for their favorite members in so-called sōsenkyo ("general elections"). Fans participate by purchasing the group's latest single, which includes a ticket that allows the buyer to register a vote for a particular member. The other selection method consists of a rock-paper-scissors tournament between the members themselves. Votes cast for the 2011 election exceeded 1 million, and the single "Everyday, Katyusha", that contained a voting ticket for the election, set a new Japanese all-time record for weekly sales of a CD single.
