[Rumour!?] 63rd Kohaku News

I read from WB..:

This year, 2012, will be Kohaku's longest showtime compared to past years.
Arashi will continue to be the host this year too!

The time for this year's show will be 7.15pm to 11.45pm (Tokyo Time). A total duration of 4Hour 25minutes.
This year's White team will be lead by Arashi and Red team by Horikita Maki !

There isnt a clear indication of the source of this news. So I went over to the official Kohaku website here and twitter here to check. (From my limited Jap reading, it is indeed that the show-time is extended. But for the news of Arashi and Maki Horikita as hosts? I can't find yet.. Rumour?
