Nogizaka46 has had a total of 78 original members during their 5 generations. As of June 2022, Nogizaka46 has 44 members.
Like AKB48, regular auditions to recruit new members are held. Starting from the 2nd generation, these members spent a period of time being Kenkyuusei. They were typically "promoted" after participating in a song on a Nogizaka46 single. With the arrival of the 3rd generation and their immediate participation on singles (Influencer), "promotion" occurs when they are integrated into Senbatsu or Under Members and the creation of their individual blogs.
