Mai Hagiwara (萩原 舞 Hagiwara Mai?, born February 7, 1996 in Saitama Prefecture) is a Japanese pop singer. She is a member of the bands Cute and also Hello! Project Kids.


Hagiwara joined Hello! Project after passing the 2002 Hello! Project Kids audition at the age of 6. She is the youngest out of the fifteen Hello! Project Kids and is also the youngest member in Cute. As a member of Hello! Project, she has participated in the groups 4Kids and H.P. All Stars.

Hagiwara later took part of the one-shot unit Kira Pika with Morning Musume's Koharu Kusumi. Their only single, "Hana o Pūn/Futari wa NS", was released on August 1, 2007.[1]

Hagiwara formerly held the record for the youngest participant on NHK's Kouhaku Uta Gassen. She appeared on the 2007 edition at the age of 11, dethroning Morning Musume's Ai Kago (who previously held the record for her 2000 appearance at the age of 12). However, in the 2008 edition, Nozomi Ohashi sang the theme song to Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea at the age of 9, breaking Mai's record.

Hagiwara formerly held the record for being the youngest person to ever join Hello! Project, as she joined shortly before her 7th birthday. She held this distinction for nearly seven years until Aiko, of Frances & Aiko, joined shortly after her 6th birthday.
