I don't get all this bitch stuff either. It's so annoying.


The performance was really nice. I'm not fond of her being this overly dramatic but well, that's her. The blooming cherry trees on the other side were gorgeous, I hope she will have those at her upcoming tour. I also don't mind her re-using this dress, it was my favorite from Cirque de Minuit. Her vocals were ok, she could have sung it a lot more worse. I'm quite happy with the performance and certainly not embarrassed of it.

I was wondering if her vocals would have sounded better if she sang ASFxx in a lower key exactly like her concert performances, since she hardly sings her older songs in its original key anymore (ex. appears, immature, TO BE, WHATEVER have all been sung in a lower key)

Only for certain songs. Basically anything like ASFXX. I think Last minute and Memorial address also tend to involve the flails.

To be fair, something can be bad without being the worst. For me, there was no part of her vocal performance that went past "just OK".

For me, I think the thing that killed this performance the most for me was the fact that she was dramatically flailing and trying to be all epic, but not because she was really into the performance. I think she knows that one of the reasons fans love her live is her ability to connect emotionally to the song. But, here it seems totally put on. To the point of being almost laughable. And then with the "epic" stance while looking off into the distance. Ayu has always been my favorite performers, even on TV. But, I wasn't feeling this.

I think this style of dancing would have been better for a different song. But overall I enjoyed the performance. I love that she's just her, no matter how weird/bad others may see it. :3

Sometimes I call my male friend, "bitch". But I feel ya. This word is not appropriate for ayu.

She could definitely do better, but her vocals are usually never stellar on M-Ste for some odd reason.

Her better shows are usually the more focused ones like say, Music Fair 21, SONGS, or IF SHE WAS EVER TO GO ON IT, Bokura no Ongaku.

It's not fair to mention SONGS because this show was pitch-corrected.
Fortunately there used to be some very decent lives even on Music Station. Like Memorial Address in 2007, Love song + M, M + Last minute for example.

"Interpretive dance"?? Maybe? XD Who am I kidding, the random flailing doesn't fit this song to me. But hey, Ayu has never really been a super amazing dancer. That's okay though. She's quirky, she's not perfect, I like that about her.

Equipment setting really affects people. Music station might have strong settings and affect her. I have seen lots of bad music stations performance from different people.

As long as she doesn't go fake crying like her recent "A Song Is Born" performance in Music Station then I am cool with it
