Hello! Project 2020 ~The Ballad~ Special Number was Hello! Project's one-day 2020 concert. It took place on December 2, 2020 at Nippon Budokan.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, members performed mid-tempos and ballads from the Hello! Project catalog, for which they were split into 2-3 smaller sections and combined into six "half-and-half" units, with 4-5 members each.[1] In compliance with government policy to prevent the spread of the virus, cheering, crowding, and closeness in the venue were prohibited, the venues were filled to 50% capacity, and wearing masks were required to enter.

The show was broadcasted live through Hikari TV and dTV Channel,[2] and was also available for live viewing in 31 different cinemas across Japan, and in Taiwan through Vieshow Cinemas Taipei Hsin Yi; standard coronavirus prevention measures applied for all cinemas.[3]

A footage of the concert will be released in DVD and Blu-ray on May 26, 2021.
