Yes, it was one of her best performances ever. However during the same show she sang another song, A Song is Born I think?, and it was terrible, because it was out of her range. A lot of her songs are too high for her, she's doing so much better when she can sing within her comfortable range.

I agree. Her Jewel performaces were either hit or miss. I think her Kouhaku performance made the news because of how bad it was. Off-key performances started happening, like Fated (that's when her hearing problems got worse, right?). There were still some good ones, especially Together When... + No way to say (2007.12.23 HAPPY Xmas SHOW!!!), but yeah, it went downhill. The infamous Countdown Live 2007-2008 happened...
