Nonfiction performance was great but Blue Bird seemed a bit awkward. Her hairstyle and make up is very retro looking.

She seems very exhausted, a little nervous and uncomfortable during the first minutes. The BLUE BIRD Chorus was a little bit ‘’strange’’ with her current voice but Nonfiction was really good. Anyway she need to rest now.

I think I watched a different performance. For me, she wasn't comfortable and "present" like that on a TV performance in ages.

The performance was great – I liked the energy a lot & the vocals were solid (yes, they probably edited them a bit but whatever). The "catwalk" part during Nonfiction's first chorus felt like it was cut short a bit but other than that, everything was really good, imo.

Her styling was fantastic! It reminds me of this look, but more modern & mature.

Wow, i thought she was very good for this LIVE... O_O
(pleasantly) Surprised!

Not a music person, but felt she can somehow sing high pitch again?
And she doesnt feel out of breath (have been feeling that for her recent live, guess it was due to her recovery from pregnancy?)

Her non-fiction, i feel even better than the CD
Full of live and energy here.

I agree with many comments above that her Nonfiction performance was really on point this time and very stable (BLUE BIRD not so much though, we've seen better days for this song...)
Guess her "current voice" fits her recent songs more than older ones ?

Looks like she could not hear well at the beginning and kept adjusting. That made her uncomfortable, and then she fixed it. She preforms well.

I thought she did great in this performance! This wasn't pre-recorded either. Nice vocals and she was really focused and she looked fantastic. Definitely got Love Appears era vibes from the style.

Did she reveal the name. I'm curious.

BI thought, It sounds like she's working on her vocals with someone. I knew she could get her vocals back and she can go even further. It just she needs to stay on top of it, and work with someone who's really good. I don't doubt that Beyoncé is also still taking lessons now and then. It's like football players being guided by fitness and other trainers to do well. This is something even the most prestige voice professors are preaching on.

Finally had the time to watch this. Wow, she did really well! Her vocals were on point, and it's clear she's had some training. She looked amazing, happy and well. BLUE BIRD was good and Nonfiction is such a jam.

So I watched this and i loved the performances, but there was something weird going on on the higher notes, they had something odd about them. I loved it all though, she sounded very controlled and neat regardless. However, she always does pretty well on TV shows because most of the tracks are ballads and they are a lot less complicated to perform.
BTW, is none gonna mention that she had this early Ayu look going on with that suit and the hair? I just for some reason really loved that!

what a great live!! Blue Bird was a bit weird on the chorus parts, too high pitched and not very articulate, not the best version for sure but still very enjoyable.
I just love Nonfiction so much, and this live was so good!!

I feel she's really been great recently when it comes to controlling her voice, so I hope we are all wrong in interpreting her most recent Insta post and that we are in for a great era of her career!
