Hey, it’s the return of the Friday Fun, currently running a reduced service every 52 or 53 Fridays. Here we are at the end of 2021 and I think it’s safe to say that collective optimism for the forthcoming year is possibly lower than it was twelve months ago. But we’ll always have idols so let’s entertain ourselves today by forecasting their actions over the forthcoming centi-century.
First though, let’s see just how psychic we all were this time last year:

Going along with the tradition of WACK losing its most iconic members each year since 2018 or so, Hashiyasume Atsuko sadly loses her glasses before the second half of the year. #2021IdolPredictions

The trend of groups doing Hard Rock/Electronica, as overdone and boring as it now is, will continue. #2021IdolPredictions
