Tanaka was selected from the Morning Musume LOVE Audition 2002 to join Morning Musume as part of the sixth generation, along with Fujimoto Miki, Kamei Eri and Michishige Sayumi. She made her debut on the single Shabondama, was first featured on the Ai no Dai 6 Kan album, and made her first concert appearance at the Morning Musume Concert Tour 2003 Haru "Non Stop!" concert.
Tanaka is one of the few members to be the lead on their debut single - she provided the main vocals for Morning Musume's 19th single, Shabondama. She was also featured in a solo version of Memory Seishun no Hikari on Best Shot Vol.4, but was not selected as the center for a song until Ambitious! Yashinteki de Ii Jan. She normally gets more lines than her fellow sixth generation members, Michishige Sayumi and Kamei Eri.
