Maybe the coolest footage didn't have the best audio or something and they decided to mix different dates :think not sure if that was the case or if happened in other concerts/DVDs tho.

I don't take DVD in consideration because it was always pretty edited. But there are even a TV live she lip synced cuz she was sick if I remember it right

Really? I remember her singing live on TV even when she was crazy ill.
The concerts are a different story :-)

it also refers to the fact that she can sing and dance LIVE

I first heard Koda when she covered "Cutie Honey" (song that I really liked) and although she was dancing and singing live performing this song on TV, I was very disappointed she could never hit the high notes in the chorus.

I'm not all that into her tv lives, so I don't remember if it was a lip sync or if it was REALLY bad and I'm mistaking it for an early cdl where she lip synced. But even if that happened on TV, it was literally once.

The first song I heard was real Emotion and I was really looking forward to the a-nation 2005 performance - I remember it was pretty bad, but then every next performance of that song was worse until she started doing a rock version and put it in a medly and butchered it for good.

Also the self proclaimed ďqueen of liveĒ doesnít appear to be in top 50?

I havenít been interested in Koda for years (no shade), so Iím not an apologist, but these kinds of malapropisms are messy and irresponsible. Itís things like that that cause Stan wars. Isnít Ayu VS Kuu a little 2007? Individual=/=an entire corporation.

LOL. Anyway, I've always seen Namie as the Queen of Hip-Pop, Koda as the Queen of Pop, and Ayumi as the Empress of Pop.

With Namie's comeback, I think she earned every right to call herself the Queen of Hip-Pop. She managed something no other major pop idol has ever done: She became the biggest selling female artist early and late in her career.

With Ayu, she's always had an insane amount of finesse to her image, music, lyrics, PVs, etc. For her, it was always about the "experience" or the "story".

With Koda, she's just always done equally well both the singing and dancing. My only wish is that we saw more stuff like "Alive" and "Koishikute" throughout Koda's heyday. I still tear up when I listen to "Alive", since it's the most unexpected amazingly done song I'd ever think to associate with Koda.

Overall though, they all three, alongside artists like MIKA NAKASHIMA, BoA, Otsuka Ai, Suzuki Ami, all win for being the defining elements of the era in Japanese Pop music that saw more sales, more creativity, more immersion into music as an art than any other time in history. I'm eternally grateful I got to live and be old enough to be aware and share in it with others.
