Thank you!
She is perfect. She delivered a really good performance and people focused on her weight again? Damn, it's hard to be a woman.

Actually you hear them pretty well in BLUE BIRD.

What a throwback !!! If I didn’t know I would definitely think that’s a pic of 2002 ! She is damn cute ... people are so hard on her ... obviously she has gained more muscles since some times but she looked good I can’t be believe that people call her fat ...

Btw she was on point vocally just like before I’m really satisfied.

I saw bits and pieces of it on an instagram account that posts random Ayu performances and it took me a while to realize it was new! Even her clothes scream 2000s in a good, nostalgic way!!!

Edit/ People talking about her weight again?

I remember she wore this dress sometime back in the early 2000s although I can't pinpoint exactly where, I think it may have been a live or photo shoot or both. Anyway, she looked great and did amazing! I feel like I was transported back to 2003, even her vocals sounded about as great as they did back then! Awesome job ayu

I really just don't understand the point of Timmy's outfit though. I get it if he wants to express himself through his clothes or lack of clothes.. that's all fine and good but what in the world does that outfit have to do with any of the songs performed? Absolutely nothing.. Also, if you're in the background of a performance I don't believe you should be wearing something that could distract from the main act, and that's what he was doing.
I'm not really mad or anything though, the performances were still amazing and I'll still rewatch them. It has been a while since I wanted to rewatch ayu performances!

^Timmy doesn't decide what he wears on stage... No one in the troupe does.

Oh okay. I figured he did because it doesn't really make sense for any stylist to pick that outfit for him for this performance.

^Ayu probably is the one deciding what everyone wears on stage.

I don't want to sound too activist, but... I found funny people feeling uncomfortable about Timmy's qu-ee-rness* in a performance that we barely can see him, unless you really pay attention to the background.

Speaking for myself, I had some issues with Ayu's over-the-top q-u-ee-r* performances (like the carnival section of Tour of Secret or Bold & Delicious at AT06) back then and seeing these performances nowadays I understand my discomfort with that was related to looks and "qu-ee-rness*" of everything. Now I'm in good terms with that (and with myself).

*I didn't know these words are offensive in English, I see a lot of people talking about qu-ee-r culture and qu-ee-r studies at academy. Sorry if it's offensive.

I hope the last things she is thinking about is apologizing for her clothes (which were good) or her weight (which is good, and even if it wasn't wtf), she has paid her dues already so many times

Mixed feelings about it.

The good: She sounded all right. Not great, but pretty good for her. Maybe my expectations were too high after people were commenting that she sounded like her 02/03 lives again (she does not). I like the throwback clothes. I liked that she was the focus of the performance.

The not so good: The clothes, again, made her look heavy. She did look bloated, which I just don't get because she looks totally normal in all the private photos and videos we see. Whatever she is doing before TV lives, she should stop.

Maybe it's period bloat

You can't really avoid that, and of course, they won't show in private photos & videos lol

Her vocals weren't that great in my opinion but she has sounded worse. Her outfit is love for me, I adore the 2002 Ayu so much haha.

I think she did well. She sounds better than like.. last year, when she performed ourselves on a TV-show. I think she looked nice as well, not heavy or really bloated. The dress is nice. I think it is an overall good performance. Well done, Ayu!

I'm loving the 2002 throwback, her hair was on point and the outfit was cute. Vocals sounded good actually, I thought she would sound way worse. Thank god the dancer were no distraction this time.

And whoever think looking like a pro-wrestler is bad, y'all can shove it up your ass, pro-wrestlers can as beautiful as any woman, no matter what their body type.

How they weren't that great? She pretty much sounded like she was just lip syncing, pretty much perfect vocals here

Perfect vocals is a bit of a stretch, but they weren't bad neither.
