I was wondering if this would ever happen and I’d get a chance to participate but it sucks it says you must be “fluent.” ...

Why not just pretend to be fluent?


I wonder if this is the start of a new album promotion? Usually artists go on TV to promote something.

Lol cause who knows if it’s for a performace? Maybe it’s like a panel and they’ll ask fans how ayu impacted them. I could make my way through it but I’m definitely not fluent.

Edit: I read the description - looks like she actually will appear and perform.

Aderianu 28th March 2018 07:48 AM

She may promote only tour, but anyway! TV performance! Last time ayu was on TV with TO BE + ourselves at Music Station a year ago

tokyoxjapanxfan 28th March 2018 08:45 AM

I'm thinking it's the CDTV 25th anniversary special, which will air on the 7th

Which means for her part it'd be recorded ahead of time. (The show on the 7th also has live acts as well) This means if you're selected you'll be there until she likes the outcome. Which means you get to watch multiple times :-D

Hopefully this is the case.

rainbow_smile 28th March 2018 10:12 AM

I believe they ask you to be fluent because all the instructions will be given in Japanese

Zeke. 28th March 2018 10:45 AM

Ok well I entered!

njanjayrp 28th March 2018 11:51 AM

So according to ayu's FB Page:

From 3/31 (Sat) from 16:00 to the official line "Ayu 20th commemorative special line live" will live from the rehearsal venue ��
This is what I'm going to do.

The details of your show reservation, etc. Will be announced tomorrow! You can get the power of music

Zeke. 28th March 2018 11:57 AM

Interesting. I won’t be watching cause I need everything to be a surprise when I go, lol.

I’m assuming it’s a google translate, but the last line is more along the lines of “May the power of music reach you” / “May the power of music be delivered” and I love the way that sounds.

Gorgonia 28th March 2018 04:42 PM

What is this LINE LIVE thing she mentioned?

pedronekoi 28th March 2018 05:38 PM

^ A live on the LINE app. She did that for JtB Tour and TA Tour. Sometimes she sits with the dancers and band and talk about the tour and answer questions and one time she was on the rehearsal and danced to some songs.

Is it the regular LINE app?

pedronekoi 29th March 2018 10:15 PM

Yes it is! We even received a notification from Ayu's profile there with the link to the future LINE live

I haven’t used LINE in ages. What’s her profile ID?

AJFmzk 30th March 2018 12:28 AM

^ Her LINE profile is just 浜崎あゆみ. On the regular LINE her profile pic is from the JTB poster, and on LINE LIVE app her profile pic is the M(A)DE IN JAPAN album cover. Just type her profile name into the official accounts search for Japan. If your LINE country isn't Japan by default, you'll have to change it to Japan when you search or her profile won't show up.

Btw is it possible to record/save LINE Lives? I will probably miss it since it'll be at 03:00 my time but I really want to be able to see it...

hayasaki 30th March 2018 01:00 PM

Correct me if i'm wrong but i read it something like Ayu's performance will be broadcasted live from Saitama Super Arena on her segment?

I doubt so... cos they requested audience for the performance... so the broadcast would be the pre recorded session. So those going for the 7th concert might miss the TV perf. Not sure how long is the TV program.

Aderianu 30th March 2018 07:16 PM

It's CDTV 25th Anniversary SP

on air 4/7(土)19:00~

Maybe Ayu will just greet live from concert and then they will show pre-recorded performance

When will we know what she sang?

SunshineSlayer 3rd April 2018 05:46 PM

It seems like this will have a lot of surprise artists. So far only 14 are officially announced, but the site says many more will be performing and the show is only in a few days. Will be interesting to see just who else. Compared to the 15th anniversary show they did, the number of artists is quite small so far.

Katsuyuki012 4th April 2018 08:33 PM

Why on earth would you have to be fluent and a Japanese resident?

To make sure you won't miss the event and will follow all instructions.

tokyoxjapanxfan 5th April 2018 02:11 AM

^that, and also i think it's potentially for safety reasons
You'd be under their supervision for a period of time, and if anything were to happen, it'd be on them to have to deal with it, which would be harder if you can't converse with them. Even in 2018 Japan has a very low level of English in their workforce.

In terms of residence, I don't know why that would matter.

SunshineSlayer 5th April 2018 02:57 AM

^To make sure you actually go, I suppose.

And yeah, makes total sense that you need to be fluent in Japanese.

AJFmzk 5th April 2018 03:13 AM

I remember reading somewhere on TA that you are not allowed to miss it if you are selected as an audience member. If you cannot make it/don't show for any reason you will be blacklisted and not allowed to be an audience member for any future ones.

truehappiness 5th April 2018 04:25 AM

That's how a lot of invite things are.

kinix 5th April 2018 08:15 AM

Even ayu can escape the fate of being blacklisted :D

SURREAL & SEASONS

Cahz- 6th April 2018 12:47 PM

Oh well, SURREAL at least.

maxikot 6th April 2018 01:12 PM

I don't mind Seasons. It's a very audience friendly song which is simply pretty. Considering it was pre recorded I am expecting a pleasant performance. Surreal? We will see but again, since it's done pre-live I think we will get a decent show.

Mirrorcle Monster 6th April 2018 01:24 PM

She has 350 retweets and 552 likes on that tweet, which is more than acts like Perfume or AKB48 on that same account. Nogizaka46, of course, leads the ship with 780 retweets and 1,8k likes

Agree!:yes

RealLight 6th April 2018 05:32 PM

Eh...

tokyoxjapanxfan 6th April 2018 06:23 PM

I wonder if she's tired of Seasons? Lol

Katsuyuki012 6th April 2018 08:23 PM

She wouldn't sing it then. She has other hits to chose and honestly she doesn't sing it as much these days as people present it imo.

Evan Odinson 6th April 2018 09:52 PM

Nothing new but those are not bad choices specially for an anniversary celebration, and I love both so I'm good with it, and I really want to see how she looks with that pink hair and white dress :luv2

Chris85 7th April 2018 05:20 AM

Surreal is fine, but she always struggles with lalalalai parts.

ayufan89 7th April 2018 02:43 PM

She looked really good!
Amazing how she looks much skinnier compared to LINE Live

Katsuyuki012 7th April 2018 03:02 PM

Checked clips and she sounded really good. Ahh I can't wait for somebody to upload it already.

Just saw this random tweet about ayu's performance:

Ayumi Hamasaki’s backup singers:
-normal backup singer
-Babymetal stunt double
-guy in a sari with heart nipples #cdtv


I'm dying :laugh

Cahz- 7th April 2018 04:06 PM

I liked it. She sounded fine on both:luv2
The movements on the beginning of SEASONS tho :tipsy

xLuna&1LOVE 7th April 2018 04:13 PM

I preferred SEASONS over SURREAL, but she was vocally really good. If it wasn't for the extreme gestures or the typical way her backgroundsingers are dressed I would give it an A, easily. But whatever, it is so iconic Ayu and I am so glad to watch a performance in which she looked comfortable, instead of struggling. For someone who is hearing so little, and still delivering this... is just amazeballs.

Now I want also pink hair.

voltron 7th April 2018 04:22 PM

Probably her best TV live in years. She transitioned to the high notes so we'll! I wonder if she's taking vocal lessons again.

Katsuyuki012 7th April 2018 04:26 PM

Her best live since 2015 I'd say.

primavera♥ 7th April 2018 04:46 PM

Wow. She sounds amazing. I really enjoyed watching that.

I think this performance more than anything proved her weight gain.
I liked how she sounded, but the vocals were pitch-corrected. Try looking for off-key notes: there are none, she's pitch-perfect like on DVDs.

Katsuyuki012 7th April 2018 04:51 PM

^she's not. E.g. after lalalalai during SURREAL

maxikot 7th April 2018 04:54 PM

Great performance. She looked great, sounded great and shared fantastic energy. Wishing for more tv appearances of her like this one ;- )
And EVEN IF it was pitch corrected then we would hear if she struggled or did badly. She obviously enjoyed being there and did very well.

AyuGAME 7th April 2018 04:59 PM

She sounded really good!!! She does look put on some weight, but she still looks great.

"Watashi wa watashi" and the lalalalai parts sound struggled imo... Not bad but definitely not pitch perfect.

RealLight 7th April 2018 05:39 PM

She sounded really good (lovely on SEASONS). Thank god the camera didn't focus too much on her dancers (the stage is small, it looked cramped with all of them).

And what in the blue hell was Timmy wearing? Jesus :laugh

Refix 7th April 2018 05:55 PM

She looks and sounds great, which is surprising. Boring setlist. Too much going on on that stage. Why did she have to bring a batalyon dancer. Timmy... OMG, Ayu what's on your mind dressing him like that?

tokyoxjapanxfan 7th April 2018 05:59 PM

Vocally she did great :) and I thought she looked beautiful.

But for some reason I couldn't kick the feeling of like, you know when they turn the lights on at the club when they're closing and it just -immediately- kills the mood? That's all I could think of with the lights being on in the audience lol

Machiko 7th April 2018 06:00 PM

WOW !!

Love her pink hair so much I wish she would keep it a bit longer!!

CeReSu 7th April 2018 06:15 PM

FULL performance and in HD!
Enjoy!!

https://www.facebook.com/ayuparadise...7279034433835/

thinkingoutloud89 7th April 2018 06:28 PM

I find her movement cringy at times - and Timmy in this whole scenario. I mean - glad for him and nice of her for letting him be who he wants to be and a different portrayal in Japan, but this felt - at least to some point - very laid back and he looked horrendous in it.

Katsuyuki012 7th April 2018 06:32 PM

She dresses him.

Sky High 7th April 2018 06:43 PM

She was amazing. Her voice was so good. I like this performance.

Machiko 7th April 2018 06:45 PM

@ everyone complaining about Timmy:

It's funny because most of times people complain about something Ayu does it's because they have a BIG lack of knowledge about Japanese culture (like the one who said the monkey in Made in Japan tour was annoying lol)

The day AHS understands that Ayumi Hamasaki is a Japanese product FOR Japanese people maybe things will change


280301 7th April 2018 06:49 PM

I enjoyed Ayu's vocal performance, but I'm not a huge fan of her showgirl + troupe aesthetic. I feel like that is all we've seen from her recently...she needs a change.

se7entheaven 7th April 2018 07:08 PM

I think her action is a bit too much. Unbearable even. Since when SEASONS looks like a super difficult song to sing? And those squatting while belting higher notes are really unnecessary. It made her look so uncomfortable. Gone were the days she sings it naturally like for example A Museum.

Katsuyuki012 7th April 2018 07:12 PM

Naturally like voice-wise? Cuz if you mean that then I'm sorry but back then she was singing unnaturally.
If you mean gestures, she's always liked to 'act'.

Be real here. Not that muh over the top. She was nearly laying down in SEASONS. It really was to much.

Katsuyuki012 7th April 2018 11:09 PM

It was a lot but she's been dramatic for quite some time (I suppose I'm used to it). One remember A Song For ×× AT15.
I understand it can annoy people and yes it used to be less but it has always been a thing she 'likes' doing. But yes, you're right, it was much more than during her early days but like, it's not that new either.

People just always seem so idk like it's a new thing that she's being dramatic.

Actually, Ayu has had trouble singing Seasons for quite a while. Even back when the song first came out, she struggled with consistently hitting the "La-Lai's" in television performances. Seasons really isn't an easy song for her to sing. A Museum happened in 2003 and 2003-2005 was really her vocal golden era; everything seemed effortless.

I overall enjoyed the performances. She put a lot more falsetto into Seasons, because again, it's a struggle to hit that song in full-voice, and I thought the switch to falsetto worked well.

Overall, I liked the stage and performance, but thought Timmy was extremely distracting. Extremely.

I really like both outifts (really one outfit that became two), I just don't think it is that flattering on her body type.

I really appreciate her taking the time to still try to do at least some TV performances. Many artists who have been around as long as her or longer don't really bother much anymore.

Andrenekoi 8th April 2018 03:31 AM

The boss pick up the outfits.
Ayu is the boss.
And somehow people around here still thinks Timmy shows up dressing however he wants and calls it a day.

EndOfTheWorld 8th April 2018 04:25 AM

I am so happy with this.:luv2
She looked so beautiful. Just like in Power Of Music she gave me that musical fairy/goddess vibe. I haven't loved an Ayu look as much as this in quite some time.
Vocals were very very pleasant. I do also feel like they may have done some gentle cleaning up with the vocals. So subtle though, it's hard to tell honestly.
And again with Timmy...:bsigh
I enjoyed everything else so much though. So happy for Ayu.

Andrenekoi 8th April 2018 05:21 AM

"Ayu is being too overdramatic!"

*watches live. Sees Ayu being as dramatic as she has being during performances for the past 20 years or so. Wonder if the ones complaining had actually watched an Ayu performance before".

Bigtop 8th April 2018 07:35 AM

There was a reason why it had to be pre-recorded - scheduling conflict with the start of the latest Arena Tour.

I'll try to watch this as soon as possible, as well as the entire show since there are other artists I'm also paying attention to (including Nogizaka46 and AKB48 who performed new songs on that show as well).

//ABEST 8th April 2018 10:39 AM

i think that performance was beautiful, she looked amazing and her voice was best we have heard in years!

it was heart-warming when she gave her hand to fans, that was really sweet of her and show how much she really cares about her fans

i almost teared up on SURREAL because it just felt like it was celebrating her whole today-20years-old career

at first i was like SEASONS + SURREAL =boring af and was thinking should i even watch it but thank god i watched it!

Doesn't matter to me who picks them out; it's distracting from the performance.

Andrenekoi 8th April 2018 06:30 PM

^My point is: Blame Ayu, not Timmy. It's not his fault. It's annoying as fuck always reading people complaining and name calling people from Ayu's team about stuff that Ayu is the only one to blame.

She is the one picking and aproving the outfits. And setlists. And arragments. And choreography. And how much spotlight everyone gets. And concepts.

If Timmy looks like this or that, if he is distracting, if he is too pretty pony~pretty pony~pretty pony~pretty pony~pretty pony~, whatever, its not like he just got into the stage and did whatever he felt like.

thinkingoutloud89 8th April 2018 08:12 PM

I'm sorry for bringing this up again: I'm watching this again and the problem is not her being dramatic - we all know she is - and it is fitting for some songs and stages but surely not for SEASONS. SEASONS is a bittersweet song, with a yet soft composition and watching her acting during this like she is in great pain and all just somehow ruins it - at least for me. I agree, she sounds fine for me and I hope nobody feels attacked now but it just does not fit. She once had some sort of accapella version before Days which felt much more ...sincere? I guess that is the main problem - it doesn't just look like acting, it also feels like it.

As for Timmy: How do you know he does not pitch these outfits? I guess he has a pretty big say in this. Being a drag-queen on a big stage and DVDs is nothing a boss can force from you, especially if you don't enjoy it. I guess everybody here is aware that Ayu is the boss and has the last say, but I sincerely think this is mostly his idea and she somehow finds it cool. Nobody said he can come with whatever he wants, but I highly doubt ayu was like "hey Timmy, for my next show I want you to be a big ass drag-queen, mostly naked, in high-heels and spray-tan." Please gurl, that is ridiculous to think.

Katsuyuki012 8th April 2018 08:16 PM

He only goes drag for her shows from what I know. Surely he agrees on it and is fine with it but that doesn't mean it's his idea or that he chooses the outfits. IIRC he even stated that it's Ayu who chooses those outfits etc but I'm not 100% sure.
And just because you can't imagine that Ayu would say that or that it's "ridiculous to think" doesn't mean it can't be like that, or do you think her dancers choose their half naked leather costumes too.

Yes, she is likely giving outfit directions etc. and Timmy (or whoever) will wear it as long as they're fine with it. He mpst probably could say no but doesn't because yes, he most probably does like it and definitely is okay with it.

Even if it was his idea (altho I'm pretty sure I read this thing that he stated it's ayu etc.) and he chooses his outfits well then okay but let's not spread (possibly) rumours based of what we think would otherwise be "ridiculous".

thinkingoutloud89 8th April 2018 09:44 PM

I still think it looks terrible in some areas...and sometimes it does not even fit the rest of the outfits which makes me suspicious.

And "choosing outfits" isn't exactly taking a direction. It actually goes along with what I said. He probably like these kind of stuff for stage outfits and they both saw it in Tokyos gay districts and he/she pitched the idea and at the end of the day she shoes what her stuff brings up based on these ideas. It still does not mean that the idea for everything can come from him and even so...I don't blame him for wearing that but the outfit for being there regardless to who choose it. i couldn't care less about that because I can't adress anyone on this anyways.

EndOfTheWorld 8th April 2018 09:57 PM

I actually didn't think she was too dramatic. It was a little bit theatrical here and there but I didn't find it annoying or uncomfortable to watch.

Machiko 8th April 2018 10:05 PM

It's not his idea, someone on this forum said Timmy had confirmed (on facebook? Not sure) that it's all Ayu's, not his, and he would never wear something like it himself. The whole look is for the Japanese fans, not for you. That's why you don't understand or like it, because you don't get it and you're not supposed to. I personally don't see the problem, especially to the level AHS has with it, it's just an outfit.

Actually I've seen some (negative) Japanese posts about him in this CDTV performance on Instagram.
This doesn't have much to do with somebody being Japanese or not, if he or she 'doesn't get it'. In this case it's not a cultural thing imo.

Drag is not solely Japanese and it might be a look associated with this district, but that doesn't make it to a Japanese thing.

I looked through the CDTV hashtag on Twitter yesterday and most of Japanese comments about ayu were people being surprised that Timmy stood out so much, from what I understood. So, seems like it doesn't seem natural to Japanese people neither

Although I don't really mind Timmy's outfits that much

Disagree. It's like saying anime/manga aren't Japanese because animation and cartoons aren't solely japanese. :D There are still cultural differences in them that makes them unique and something only the audience it's aimed for understands better than others.

Ok, since my post showed here (I'm not offended or anything Machiko :p) I'll try to explain myself because in this particular performance it's not exactly like I said.

I think the whole Timmy thing works in Ayu's concerts because it's her audience, but TV is a different thing. Gay culture is not well seen in Japan so I'm not surprised for the bad comments in social media about Timmy's outfit. Although I totally respect Timmy's outfit in Ayu's concerts I think in this performance it's out of context. But not only him, all of back chorus. Because the whole performance is like... white.

Watching the performance I had the feeling that Ayu's doesn't care about TV anymore. The last performances she has done could be from any tour. Even her mood is very "concertish" cheering people and all the uh! things she screams.
