History

Konno was selected from Love Audition 21 to join Morning Musume as a fifth generation member on August 26, 2001, along with Takahashi Ai, Ogawa Makoto, and Niigaki Risa. Although only three girls were expected to be chosen, Konno was the wildcard selection, despite having performed poorly in all areas of the audition. (Tsunku had called Konno "a failure".) She made her debut appearance on the single "Mr. Moonlight ~Ai no Big Band~," and first appeared on the fourth studio album, 4th Ikimasshoi!.

Later that year, Konno was the lead in the TV special Morning Musume tokuban: 13-nin-gakari no Kurisumasu. During this show she proclaimed that she was the "spare". The plot of the show was to prove to Konno that Morning Musume could work together as a 13 member unit and did in fact need and want her there.

She was unexpectedly thrust into a central position in the May 2002 musical, "Morning Town," receiving the lead role in the second half of the play.

In September 2002, the fifth generation were placed into the Morning Musume subgroups, and Konno was added to the Tanpopo roster along with Niigaki Risa. She participated in one single, "BE HAPPY Koi no Yajirobee."

Konno was placed in Morning Musume Sakura Gumi in January 2003 and released two singles as a part of the group before it went inactive.

Later that year in July, Konno was added to Country Musume along with Fujimoto Miki, going on to release three singles with the group.

Despite her weaker singing voice in comparison to the other members, Konno sang a solo version of "Papa ni Niteiru Kare" on the fanclub-only DVD release of Morning Musume Best Shot Vol. 3.

She was an original member of the futsal team Gatas Brilhantes H.P. when it was formed in September 2003, having the position of goalkeeper along with Tsuji Nozomi.

On April 28, 2006, Konno announced her graduation alongside Ogawa Makoto. She graduated from Morning Musume and Hello! Project on July 23, 2006, in order to take the high school graduation exam and enter a university.

On December 14, 2006, it was announced that Konno had been accepted to Keio University, Shonan Fujisawa campus (SFC). Keio University is considered the best private university in Japan.

On June 18th, 2007 it was announced that Konno would be returning to H!P to continue her futsal career with Gatas Brilhantes H.P. It was also announced that she would preform in the summer concert in Nagoya on July 17, 2007. On September 12, 2007, she and other Gatas members would release Gatas' debut single "Narihajimeta Koi no Bell". [1] [2]
