℃-ute was a Japanese pop group within Hello! Project that was formed in June 2005. 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 73,018 copies sold and their lowest selling single is "Sekaiichi HAPPY na Onna no Ko" with 19,830 copies sold.

On August 20, 2016, it was announced that ℃-ute would disband following a final live concert at Saitama Super Arena on June 12, 2017.
