LOL !! Kuu always singing live.. cause her vocals are good live

I'm a bit disappointed of ayu's performances.. why she always sings A Song for, Boys & Girls and July 1st? these are totally boring ya! especially B&G.

my favorite performances were Rule and TO BE Rule was AMAZING, her vocals not that good though.. and her hairstyle no comments u.u and TO BE.. I love this song so much *3*

the last year I enjoyed more with ayu performances, but this year Kuu totally took my heart *-* PERFECT PERFORMANCES EVER!

I love how the camera just stayed on her, hahahahaha.
I want to be that girl ok but i can't believe she has so many space to move, there are two girls specialy that seems to be just standing watching the show... japanese people are boring

I really enjoy this show, so much energy from Ayu, I wanna see it again

thats probably it, koda sounded way better than usual, but it definitly seemed live and every voice had something weird to it in this a-nation

she's so skinny this time.. koda's perfomance is always great so I wasnt suprised. The exciting part here is whether Ayu sings better than last year or not.

(quoting my comment from the news thread)

Wow ayu was great vocally on this a-nation.

I really liked Rule live, it was a potential disaster but ended up being one of the greatests of this a-nation.

A Song for xx was powerful as always <3
Not as last year I think but ayu still did vocal shizzes which brought the powerful feeling so I liked it.

Sunrise ~LOVE is ALL~ sounded soooo good with ayu's normal and not cute voice, I like the studio version but I think the live one is wayyy better.

Shuya flailed on TO BE.
Sunset ~LOVE is ALL~ was really pretty, and the whole show had huge energy in it.

Btw the opening of ayu's section/Rule is one the bests. I really liked it personally.

The majority doesn't lip sync because they sound bad and Kumi doesn't have to lip sync because most of her songs have loads of back-tracking, in other words she has her work cut down for her.

As for Ayu's performances, she owned the a-nation stage this year and I think the reactions of the crowd probably show that the best. I loved the way she handled TO BE and the fact that she was so full of energy and joy during all the performances.

And I agree with SunshineSlayer, besides Lick Me, the other performances were mostly boring and even AAA failed to amuse me.

Well Tohoshinki's Survivor looks good from the fancams and they sound so lovely in Stand by U even from the fancams... can't wait, along with Kuu, Ai and of course Ayu lol.

Really good A Nation! I actually really like the outfits, reminded me a bit of concert tour 2000 with the styling and hair. The hair made her look quite young I thought.

That boat for B&G is sooo cool!

Rule was my favorite performance (like many others') of this a-nation. A Song for XX was basic good. TO BE was the best of ballads, Sunset was quite . (I don't have special comments about the other performances)

All in all, a good a-nation!

MY TURN FOR COMMENTS!! HAHAHAH
someone please please upload this in HQ..I WILL download this a-nation fully..omg

Rule: OMG MY HEART WAS PUMPING ALL THE WAY. It was E.P.I.C.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Im sure AT09's will be way better with that laser and whatnot.. I can't describe how pumped I was watching this through the screen. The atmosphere must have been AMAZING there..the audience was superb.

A Song For XX: I agree that it does seem weeaker than last year but I thought her bridge was very well sung. This song always sounds so amazing gosh.

BLUE BIRD: nice!!! The dancers could have been more..neat..some moves were still not coherent. Ayu's energy was great despite singing a dress (which I could never understand why lol). Enjoyed it! It's been a long long time since I heard this song.

Sunset ~LOVE is ALL~: I love the dance so much in this song really. So elegant and gentle. Ayu sounded rather weak on the first chorus but luckily she picked it up thereafter. The last chorus was really beautiful. I remained solemn throughout the song in a good way.

TO BE: BEAUTIFUL DRESS. One of my all-time-favourite-Ayu-songs. AND DAMN I WAS BLOWN AWAY. She was definitely going all out on those notes hahah. They sounded amazing and strong though. Totally have a newfound love for this song again!!!!!! She pulled it off so well.

Boys & Girls: I LOVED THE ENERGYYY OMG..but yea, for once the audience is audible but it really makes all the difference to this performance. And SHE SUNG IT! making it one of the best B&G performance I feel. loved it

Sunrise ~LOVE is ALL~: TOHOSHINKI TOWEL!! hahah epic. What was she saying?? The song sounded AMAZING. Drums make all the difference!! I wonder what happened to the towel after she turned round the corner hahha. Her vocals on the cart were not very strong but then again...IT WAS SO HYPED UP!!!

July 1st: Did she just imitated BOLT?! lollll...that was so cool. I love this rendition of July 1st with the edginess. Great finale to a spectacular concert. <3

I need the HQ haha

Well, i though about the backtracks, but on Lick me there where no difference on the sound quality between the backtrack (sometimes she even didn't pretend she was singing) and her "live voice". This only make me think that or Avex REALLY edited it, like At07 or something, or nothing on Lick me but the screamings to the audience were live...

Either way, this performace looked VERY fake @_@

^ As for me, I do hear a difference in the backtrack parts and the parts where she is singing, but it is very slight. But basically everyone sounds about a trillion times better than in those news clips, haha and it can't all be put down to just a difference in the sound quality. Some performances appear more edited than others, the Lick Me performance probably the most.
