℃-ute is an all-female Japanese pop group within Hello! Project. The character "℃" (degree Celsius) is substituted for "C" in notation for the purpose of expressing ardor—the hyphen does not have any meaning in particular. The proper pronunciation for this group in Japanese is kyūto (キュート) with pitch accents on both "ū" and "o". Their combined CD and DVD sales exceed 1 million copies in Japan alone. ℃-ute's highest selling single is Arigatou ~Mugen no Yell~ / Arashi wo Okosunda Exciting Fight! with 72,226 copies sold and their lowest selling single is Sekaiichi HAPPY na Onna no Ko with 19,830 copies sold.

2002–2004: Hello! Project KidsEdit

On June 30, 2002, all members of ℃-ute were initially selected during the audition for Hello! Project Kids.[1] Later in the same year, Suzuki Airi and Hagiwara Mai became members of 4KIDS, and appeared in the Minimoni the Movie Okashi na Daibouken!. A year later, some of the members were placed in bands led by Morning Musume members: Suzuki was selected to be in Aa!,[2] while Umeda Erika, Yajima Maimi, and Murakami Megumi were in ZYX. Both units were short-lived, and their activity stopped when half of the Hello! Project Kids were chosen to form Berryz Koubou in January 2004.[3] The kids passed over would later form ℃-ute.


In 2004, half of Hello! Project Kids were chosen to form Berryz Koubou, which was formed with the intention of rotating the kids throughout the unit. However the idea was eventually dropped. The remaining girls formed ℃-ute.[4] The group was officially announced on June 11, 2005,[4] though its formation had been rumored for several months prior.


In January, Arihara Kanna, a Hello Pro Kenshuusei, was added at the start of the Hello! Project Winter 2006 tour, as part of the Wonderful Hearts team.

On October 31, Murakami Megumi left the group suddenly without any graduation ceremony. Like Morning Musume before them, at their debut concert each of the group's members were given a color used for merchandise, costumes, and the like. Those colors: Umeda Erika - yellow; Yajima Maimi - pink; Nakajima Saki - orange; Suzuki Airi - green; Okai Chisato - blue; Hagiwara Mai - purple; and Arihara Kanna - red.


On February 21, ℃-ute's first official single, Sakura Chirari, was released. In the first week it ranked fifth on the Oricon charts, a feat not even accomplished by Morning Musume (who had ranked 6th on their debut single). With their debut single, they became the youngest group (with the average age of 13) to rank in the top 10.

On December 30, ℃-ute was chosen as "Best New Artist" by Japan Record Awards, 14 out of the 21 panel judges voted for them. Producer Tsunku received the award while the screen showed the girls crying in their dressing rooms after their performance.

On December 31, ℃-ute performed at the 58th NHK Kouhaku Uta Gassen as part of a special group with Morning Musume and Berryz Koubou. Hagiwara Mai became the youngest person to participate in Kouhaku Uta Gassen, breaking Kago Ai's record. (Hagiwara's record was broken the following year.)


At the end of 2008, ℃-ute was nominated for the main Japan Record Award, the Grand Prix, for the song "Edo no Temari Uta II," which was chosen as one of the best works of the year, but lost to Exile and had to be content with a Gold Award.


On June 29, ℃-ute announced their 10th Single. They later announced the title as "EVERYDAY Zekkouchou!!" on July 9.

On July 10, Arihara Kanna left ℃-ute and Hello! Project.

Umeda Erika graduated on October 25, to study on becoming a fashion model. This was the third member to leave the group, but the first to have a graduation ceremony. EVERYDAY Zekkouchou!!, released in September, was Umeda's last single in ℃-ute. The single ranked #2 weekly and topped the daily charts with a #1 position in its first week. This was the first time for the group to reach #1 daily and currently ℃-ute's highest-charting single overall.

At their first event as a 5-nin group, each of the members were given a new color used for merchandise, costumes, and the like. Those colors are now: Yajima Maimi - red; Nakajima Saki -blue; Suzuki Airi -pink ; Okai Chisato - green; Hagiwara Mai -yellow.
