Remember “Sixteen”? TWICE’s Momo and Sana Are Judges Now

Look at how far they’ve come!

Nizi Project is a survival program produced by JYP Entertainment and Sony Music. The project’s mission is to find girls to debut in JYP Entertainment’s first Japanese girl group.

Episode 9 aired on March 20, and to the contestants’ surprise, TWICE‘s Momo and SanaΒ appeared as judges.

When the TWICE members made their unexpected entrance, the girls were visibly shocked and excited.

Momo and Sana were all smiles as they energetically greeted the girls and wished them good luck. Their simultaneous “Fighting” was adorable!

During the episode, the contestants performed with their respective groups in front of Park Jinyoung, Momo, and Sana.

Momo and Sana gave constructive yet encouraging comments after each performance, and they even hugged and comforted the contestants who were crying.

Having also undergone a survival program themselves and being Japanese members of TWICE, they best understand how the contestants are feeling, and it reflects in their actions!
