From what I've seen Miccie's only an ok backup singer, he's fine but nothing special. Based on the lyrics though he's got an amazing song to work with so I look forward to hearing how he does.

Also, like everyone else has said I hope Ayu sings this song at some point, but if it truly is a gift to her cousin I don't really see that happening.

He's good at singing this one. It's also very fitting for male voice, I can't imagine Ayu singing this song. It's just really designed for male singer, the melody itself.

The version I heard on the first Saitama Date and the first Nagoya dates are different. Miccie sang it acoustic on Saitama and perhaps the first stops of the tour but the version they sang together with Timmy and Princess in Nagoya feels more like the original mix with strings and accompaniments.. Really love the song

I haven't really heard the melody yet. I tried to listen to the low quality version truehappiness posted, but it was hard to hear the song. I'm hoping someday we'll get a studio version at some point, or at the very least an HQ live version on a DVD release.

Revelation from Ayu. From not yet translated TeamAyu entry.
"Why it wasn't me who sang Diary? - Because it's a song from everyone to passed away myself!".

They put up the translation.

So it's from "everyone" to the "Ayu" that is gone.

Why DIARY came after WARNING. I'm sure you've all worked of out, right? Why I didn't sing DIARY?

The reason is, because that song was a song sung by ALL, to the ME that is now gone.

Specifically I think she mentions "the me who died" in the TA entry which is "the me that is not around anymore"... I kind of interpret it as a song that is written from the perspective of a fan that yearns for the old Ayu. That seems to be the connection to WARNING to me anyway. If not that interpretation though, it's very dark from the angle of if it really was about an Ayu who has passed on.

^ You're right that she had mentioned it in a TA blog after CdM

I hope that gives you a new insight into the Midnight Circus when you watch it on WOWOW tomorrow.
