She initially started her singing career as a R&B / rap singer. I always forget it.

Same here! Justice for Close to you

gosh it was as if this song were written for her. fits so well, especially with her 2011–2012 vocals. when they announced the globe tribute cover back in 2015, I so hoped ayu would cover this song.

(that said, I really love the trf version of this song in the album.)

Loved the show overall, but unite/evo/happening here just felt so out of place - ruined an otherwise perfect setlist. So happy and surprised though that she did two covers that she did on TV way back when.

Really? A bit surprising considering how long you've been a fan. She's done tv performances of both songs before - they were nice little easter eggs in this concert for fans that remember those old TV lives.

I think Happening Here / teens was a huge single for her which is why she's also kind of taken them as her own.

I imagine she stuck those upbeat tracks in as like a post-TA corner thing to get people pumped up and ready for CDL? Though now....

I really loved the show. The vocals were decent, and I loved the dresses. She brought back the Together When... dress which is one of my all time favorites.
The setlist was amazing except towards the end. I felt they were out of place and didn't belong in an xmas concert.
I also wanted Gackt to come walking out so bad for itsuka no merry christmas.

They dubbed the intro of M. In the show they originally used a newly recorded version but now it's the original track for that part.

^Maybe I should have specified that I was talking about vocals for the "'MARIA' 愛すべき人がいて キズを負った全ての者達…" part in the beginning. The rest should be the same.

maybe it was to make it look less awkward—in the original broadcast, she wasn't holding her microphone to her hand during the intro, so she wasn't syncing with the thing she was supposed to lip-synch

I really wish she would just post the full stream of it instead of excerpts. She probably doesn’t think it’s perfect, but fans do. I suspect that she might also be self conscious of her body in regards to the public, thus why we have excepts from the first set. I absolutely LOVED the pink dress (with the black leather jacket) she wore for the third set/encore. Perhaps she was moreso afraid of the public judging her appearance with being so far along. I wouldn’t worry if I were her, she should embrace her pregnancy body
