A special? Wow!

truehappiness 16th July 2018 07:42 AM

Since it's a special, they'll probably go over old appearances on the show and end with her new song, I think.

Zeke. 16th July 2018 07:48 AM

NICE!!

AyuGAME 16th July 2018 07:51 AM

FINALLY, I MISS AYU!!!

RealLight 16th July 2018 08:01 AM

THANK GAWD, WOMAN

cosmicfirefly 16th July 2018 08:01 AM

This is exciting, I can't wait!

truehappiness 16th July 2018 08:06 AM

I just rewatched the 2009 ep and she got to do four songs, lol. Sunrise B&G evo medley and Sunset... And there were two other guests!

Koumori 16th July 2018 08:10 AM

Wow, unexpected. I'm excited for this. :)

EndOfTheWorld 16th July 2018 08:15 AM

I don't want to wait until August.:laugh
Will the entire episode be about her or she will just have a special segment?
Also, I guess this is the day that Ayu will debut her 1st single from the new album?

truehappiness 16th July 2018 08:19 AM

An all ayu ep unless they have some people on to do tributes or something.

Sky High 16th July 2018 08:28 AM

FINALLY :3

Aderianu 16th July 2018 08:28 AM

I think we'll know more only after official announcement at Music Fair site

kotora 16th July 2018 08:33 AM

I smell the new album will be out in September...

Zeke. 16th July 2018 08:35 AM

Why didn't team ayu members get an e-mail asking for audience participants for this? Lol.

Chibi-Chan 16th July 2018 08:43 AM

^right? lol

Excited for the special though!

Sounds probable and awesomeeee. She's probably gonna be filming PVs throughout end July-Mid August. I hope she says something in Osaka this weekend during PoM finale.

Perhaps there will be no audience? Remember back when she was promoting A BEST 2 and she did Boys & Girls and there was no audience and she still didn't sing parts of the song and it was super weird.

truehappiness 16th July 2018 09:04 AM

Honestly, I hate when she does that, lol. She always does Boys & Girls or any of the 'concert audience' songs the same way on TV even if no one is there.

Yoake 16th July 2018 09:04 AM

^^Yes MUSIC FAIR doesn't have audience.

I'm excited for that show. It'll be a long waiting.

primavera♥ 16th July 2018 09:08 AM

I'm so excited! I hope all went well with the new song and look forward to hearing it. Also excited for whatever else will happen.

relmy 16th July 2018 01:44 PM

I can't wait!! New songs and Ayu on TV again, it's just so exciting. I loved Made in Japan and A One and I'm so ready for new Ayu music!

Deep snow 16th July 2018 01:59 PM

excited about this! I cannot believe it's been two whole years since we had a new album :cry

hud 16th July 2018 03:50 PM

ready!!!

Earth_maiden 16th July 2018 04:30 PM

Thank goodness! SOMETHING NEW!!! :luv2

Bigtop 17th July 2018 06:43 AM

Wow, Ayu's coming back to Music Fair for the first time in almost a decade?

IWRC (If we remember correctly), the last time Ayu appeared on Music Fair was August 2009?

That's quite a long time. Hundreds of Music Fair episodes without Ayu - until this coming August...

Yep! She just featured some VTR, like the "Haru yo, koi" rendition, finally (partially) rebroadcasted and captured with good audio.

KillTime111 17th July 2018 08:12 PM

Excited for new TV performances with Ayu! Especially new songs, deats for new album, exciting---, 2018!

I wish they had released the full high quality version of that performance, it's one of my favorites and I listen to the full version a lot.

Evan Odinson 17th July 2018 10:44 PM

I'm so excited! :love

She's *never* went this long without new material, right?

I've recently come off a high of having purchased and watched every single last one of her CDLs and tour DVDs/Blu-rays. It's been a heck of a marathon, but now that I've reached the end, I've come crashing down hard - and *this* is when she goes the longest in her career without releasing new material?? :-( Bad timing...I'm craving new stuff.

Wow, how long did it take you to marathon everything?

I was thinking today that I actually wouldn't mind a Winter release album. I mean, I don't want to wait that long but I do like getting an Ayu album for Xmas.

It took me a few months. It's actually been a while now since I watched the last concert - but suffice it to say that last winter, most of my Saturday evenings were spent watching a different concert. It really made me look forward to my weekends (not that I ever needed a reason for that).

I had seen all of her concerts before that, in one form or another - thanks in no small part to a few of this site's contributors. But after I finished buying up all her albums, I decided I *had* to also purchase her concerts.

It's a lot of money - especially considering I got those shipped to Canada - but to me Ayu is such a unique artist I don't mind doing it to support her in any way I can. Now that I'm all caught up - I can certainly afford what little new stuff she puts out every year.

hud 22nd July 2018 09:31 PM

^ I'm doing the same thing! I'm on AT09 lol. PCDL is one of my favorites ever so I watched it 2x

even though we had some underwhelming news today I'm still looking forward to this! I hope she snatches my wig

channy 24th July 2018 12:14 AM

I always loved her appearances and live singing on all those TV shows the most, especially the talk parts. I've rarely seen any with subtitles, though. So I never understood what they were talking but I still enjoy those lives to this day :D

Good to have two new TV lives coming!

Uknow! 29th July 2018 10:37 AM

I think these pictures are from Music Fair, maybe Ayu is going to sing the rock song?

Oh, you're right, maybe is the another one, sounds a little rockish too, I hope it's not the way I am because we have enought "live" of it haha

rainbow_smile 29th July 2018 12:26 PM

Ayu's band members don't always wear clothes fitting to the songs she sings haha

I think she'll sing the song from the spotify demos, poetry reading and the Tower Records posters

I am not sure why they always wear clothes with lots of shining / fake diamond accessories during the performance.

It will have mirror effect that more light reflects to somewhere else...?

I don't know what I don't know.

SunshineSlayer 29th July 2018 08:33 PM

It's Music Fair, so I'm sure she's doing multiple songs. White dress would be for one of the ballads, and that ensemble certainly looks like she will be doing the rock song as well.

LOL it's stage costumes. Though i have to say i'm not sure all of them are necessary on a small stage and being filmed...Could easily do with something less busy.

Linza-mo 4th August 2018 12:41 PM

So ! she will sing TO BE, voyage and a new song (the "demo" song ! )
MUSIC FAIR home page uploaded a preview !

https://youtu.be/D1MeX469dxg

Sometimes I'm happy to see her "alone" (whithout dancer) on stage <3

kaled kalil 4th August 2018 01:13 PM

And judging by the video, the setlist of the show is going to be:

12/11/2004 - M
04/05/2003 - A Song For XX
02/24/2007 - Evolution
08/11/2018 - TO BE
08/11/2018 - Voyage
08/11/2018 - New song

I love when they show old performances, HD rip ♥

Evan Odinson 4th August 2018 02:18 PM

Kinda scared about TO BE but I hope she slayed it!

Chris85 4th August 2018 03:06 PM

Looks promising, she doesn't yell in preview, just like on FNS.

njanjayrp 4th August 2018 03:21 PM

Ah she can’t handle TO BE anymore. She should stay away from it. Also 2007 wasn’t really a good year for evolution. Hopefully she’ll be in control of her voice.

hud 4th August 2018 03:25 PM

^ agree, she makes the chipmunk voice to handle it nowadays.

but I'm really excited for this! it looks very promising

alternarist 4th August 2018 04:50 PM

I wonder what's the significance of TO BE. TO BE has been performed quite frequently lately.

oaristos 4th August 2018 05:34 PM

Three songs?! That's amazing, and I'm so excited for the new song. I feel like it's been ages since she's performed something related to a new release on TV—it's usually just old songs.

Katsuyuki012 4th August 2018 08:10 PM

Well she did, it's easy to forget, though.
FLOWER at MS, Step by step at NHK SONGS (that was pretty similar to Music Fair), Last Minute at MS too and well FTL I think she performed at least once on TV, too.

xLuna&1LOVE 4th August 2018 08:40 PM

It may be too soon to say so, but she sounds good in the preview!

Sky High 4th August 2018 08:50 PM

New song, I am waiting for that one.

AyuCanada 4th August 2018 10:55 PM

It is funny how, when heard together, tO BE, VOYAGE and the new songs seems to all come from the same time period.

That's true and I had completely forgotten about those performances. :laugh

tokyoxjapanxfan 5th August 2018 01:43 AM

I know I’m beating a dead horse at this point, but put Tim in some effing normal clothes.
My eyes can’t help but to look in his direction.

Background singer. Background.


Other than that, she sounds good in the preview. :-)

While doing a lap dance at Kazuma during a touching performance of how beautiful you are.

spanishfan 5th August 2018 09:56 AM

I don't know why but I usually can't focus in other than Ayu herself. Unless I want to see something else intentionally.

EndOfTheWorld 5th August 2018 10:24 AM

Are they going to show the complete performances of the HD versions of the old ones? I always want to see older live performances in HD.:luv2

Aderianu 5th August 2018 10:46 AM

At the description on site mentioned that A Song for XX, M and evolution will be aired. Seems they will be shown in full and some other in cuts. I'm looking for A Song for, because other sI have in HD

ayujarl 5th August 2018 03:38 PM

She barely got new costume these days. Recycling in here, recycling in there... or is this part of anniversary / flashback thungy too? But then again she have numerous of costumes...
Hope she nail the new song, first impression is important...

Well, it's a "Thanks for finding me, believing in me and giving me a place to be" song, so it's quite fitting for an anniversary.

love in music 10th August 2018 03:39 AM

She does look angelic and lovely in those photos. Looking forward to the performances!

tenshi no hane 11th August 2018 10:26 AM

I'm watching it live right now. During her talk with the hosts, she mentions she has 7 dogs. She actually moved house for her dogs :laugh To give them more space to run around. With more garden, etc.

They look back a bit (since it's her 20th anniversary). Apparently there'd be times when she got home from a day of work only to be told "We'll pick you up again in 20 minutes". In other words, she had close to zero free time.

She'd tell her younger self that becoming an adult is alright. In the past she didn't know anything and that made her feel scared/anxious all the time. But she's learned a lot over the years.

edit: Hmm I actually like aeternal better live. The instruments come to life better?

Jenji 11th August 2018 10:33 AM

I also just watched it and I really loved it. She looked amazing and I liked the questions they asked her about what she would tell her younger self and so on.
I think it was a over all great 30 min special and I hope not only her die hard fans watched it.

Chibi-Chan 11th August 2018 10:37 AM

I don't know, but something was off when she sang TO BE, I can't really put my finger on it, but it was somehow strange to watch. aeternal's vocals weren't good and I didn't like it. Especially not after a ballad like Voyage, it simply falls flat in every aspect compared to Voyage. Voyage was a beautiful performance. Vocals were good and she seemed very happy performing it. Definitely my favourite part.
Other than that I liked the talk, it was fun!

thank you!!! :luv2:luv2:luv2

omg the 20 minutes part! seriously Ayu wow what a hectic schedule!

so it is not that she cant afford the house but because of her dog she need to move lol

hmm I hope anyone would translate the interview? I can sub it :P

inspire_rmx 11th August 2018 11:08 AM

loving her hair and dress!

ayumisrael 11th August 2018 11:20 AM

I didn't see TO BE and Voyage yet, but damn she sang aeternal perfectly live.

njanjayrp 11th August 2018 11:27 AM

Has anyone recorded it? I was playing on PS4 and totally forgot its today!

Edit: Just saw Voyage and aeternal on twitter. She pretty much nailed them both!

Corki 11th August 2018 12:09 PM

I just watched the performance of æternal and I liked it! In my opinion she sang it very well.

Uknow! 11th August 2018 12:15 PM

æternal

Full show

She was so beautiful and did so good...

hidekirby 11th August 2018 12:40 PM

Thank you ! This year TV lives are indeed quite impressive.
I even wonder how on earth she managed to sing without shouting or being off key. It seems miraculous.
That said I have a lot of TROUBLE (huhu) enjoying her actual voice but it is something really personal... It found it okay during Voyage choruses but I didn't like TO BE at all.
Still, very good job ayu. Keep on the good work.

Oh and I have to say I was really pleased to see her acting naturally (I feel) during the interview.

Sky High 11th August 2018 01:03 PM

Solid performance with Timmy looking demure (for a change). I didn't liked TO BE performance, to much shouting but it is better than MUSIC STATION performance from last year. Voyage and aeternal are good.

kaled kalil 11th August 2018 01:19 PM

My main problem with the performances is that it seeems that she doesn't know how to perform to a TV show anymore. I feel like she's so used to do her tours and big performances that she's not connecting with the audience that is at home. During TO BE and Voyage she does not look to the camera at least once, but you can see that for A Song For XX, during the best part of the song she's singing for you, looking at you. I don't know, that's how I feel.

Other than that Voyage was perfect! Her voice was well controled and I was surprised! She was screaming during TO BE's chorus, but that's her way of singing TO BE for the past couple of years. Overall the vocals were pretty impressive. æternal was basically the studio version, with the good vocals and all.

Btw, it's so funny seeing the M performance, with the band all in the back with low lighting. haha And gosh, her vocals during 2004 ♥

LEOyumi 11th August 2018 01:26 PM

aeternal performance was AMAZING! Absolutely loved it and even the shouting parts sounded great. I love this song so much <3

Cahz- 11th August 2018 01:28 PM

Thanks for the links, I liked Voyage and aternal. I'm surprised she still can sing so high like on Voyage.

Material Boy 11th August 2018 01:33 PM

Thank you for the link.
She NALIED the 3 performances omg I'M BALD

lovethatkuu&ayu 11th August 2018 01:43 PM

TO BE is a song she really should avoid now. I understand she really is trying, but it just doesn't sound good with her current vocal tone.

Voyage was lovely. Very gentle and delicate delivery, she should feel proud of that. aeternal works better as a song live, than as a studio recording. Really wasn't feeling it, until this live rendition.

Next_Level29 11th August 2018 01:44 PM

she sounded sooo good!

Chris_Duvall 11th August 2018 01:56 PM

She performed so well!!! I love aeternal <3

Linza-mo 11th August 2018 01:58 PM

Voyage performance was really nice and she did great on arternal ! I like this song more and more ! <3
I have never been a fan of TO BE and I think this song has always been difficult to sing for her and even more so today.

Well, She was very cute and fun during the interview, I love see her like that !

Thanks for the links =)

Evan Odinson 11th August 2018 02:01 PM

She looked really, REALLY pretty, so much better than in others TV appearances lately and sounded great imo her vocals were on point most of the time, yeah TO BE was probably the weakest performance but it was really good compared to the MUSIC STATION one from last year (it was last year? I don't really remember lol) and aeternal was great, the more I listen to that song the more I like it (I mean on the studio version). Wish we could get subs, she looked really relaxed answering those question and looks like she made a few jokes there.

polka-dot-jewel 11th August 2018 02:02 PM

Her best TV live this year, hands down. Her "screaming" sounded more controlled, all of it really. Yeah she had some pitchy moments...but she's never been a perfect singer. And for someone with her hearing issues on top of that? This was great.
