Vocally those were probably both better than the actual lives she did when she was promoting the songs as new.

I loved the throw-back vibe of the dress, especially for such an unexpected outfit (vs. something more floral, etc.). However, it didn't fit quite perfectly and may have inhibited her movement a bit. In terms of styling, I think my only "complaint" is that it seemed liked she was being swallowed up by her hair, and that it didn't look well-styled. I loved the length, color, etc. - it just felt like it was clinging to her and burying her.

I think what kept her from moving around was her heels.

She sung both songs very well. I just don't think that the oitfitswas the best Option. The dress is not bad but I liked it more on hrr the first time she wore it. This time something bothered me with IT but can't day what it id, maybe the shoes

She really sang well! For 1 sec I thought it's pre-recorded. But her lack of big movement made her look uneasy or something. Maybe this is the reason she had a better vocal?

The performance was nice, but I have to agree with her outfit.
I love the dress and the heels and appreciate she was wearing them, but it didn't fit quite well and she looked kinda short and puffy.
And well, too much dancers/people on stage.

I think this dress went through a few alterations over the course of her using in performances when promoting the }{ single. Sometimes it looked more glittery, and it maybe started as a full-length dress that later was cut into a train? I don't quite remember. But I think the part that maybe looks off right now is how cinched it is at the waist - it was fitted before, but had a more relaxed fit.

OMG Timmy, what are you wearing again? :-)
Ayu was pitch-perfect for 2 songs in a row, which is impossible for her real raw lives.
I hope she continues this approach since it's enjoyable to listen to.

Wonder what Ayu gonna explain to netizen for her look...
I remember she wore this dress while sing H and Heartplace, at that time it was good, no movement needed although she walked around studio when she sing Heartplace. But it still good. While for this setlist... she was like singing on the edge of a cliff... She could choose a more fun and loose and flow. This dress looks heavy for the setlist

^ I think this is the heartplace outfit you were thinking of...I would've DIED if she wore this, as it is one of my favorite stage outfits she's ever worn.

And I hope she doesn't explain or apologize for her look. Her face was a bit puffy as per usual (I think she gets filler before TV lives, and doesn't let them settle in properly before filming) - but nothing about her look was bad or needing explanation.

It could also be some medications, cortison for example makes the face look puffy too. Maybe her knee is bad again after the 2 concerts on weekend

I appreciate that she is giving a throwback to her early days. It seems she was pretty thoughtful in presenting herself in this performance in terms of styling but also her vocal performance.

I actually have never been a fan of that style of clothes from that era in her career and the similar trends that went on the time. But I feel that many fans do and I hope it's taken well outside of the haters.

Her vocals! I'm really impressed. I feel like she hasn't been this vocally sound on tv in over a decade but honestly I get to a point where I can't recall. It really shows her vocal potential. Whatever she did in preparation for this needs to continue.

It's not just her face, her body looked puffy too. Maybe she takes more medications before TV lives to make sure she doesn't feel that much pain while on TV? She seems to be more nervous on TV lives than at concerts. I don't really mind her looking puffy though.

She sounded great. I enjoyed the performance so much

Other than the 58 dancers on stage, I think this performance is her best in a while.

They should be careful with what they say! Ayu taking up kickboxing will beat them down! Ayu is almost 40, her body is great for her age!

Great performance! Get rid of Timmy's distracting outfits please!
