I think she did fine during the show. Compared to some of the other acts she sounded far superior lol I kind of feel like singers used to be able to perform well live in Japan on TV but the massive rise now in idol groups with a gazillon members, singing well doesn't matter as all their voices just blend into one horrible mess :/

I mean, that's a pretty ok performance I think, but I always find that nothing compares to this performance

This is probably one of the most unusual MSte episodes I've ever heard of in the past year or so. Graduated AKB members joining in today's favorites, and Ayu...?

I mean, we don't really see that every day, right?

As for the performance...man, pretty surreal. Can't think of it very much...

Yeah, this is about what I find are 'good Ayu vocals'. She's never been the best singer but I think here her voice sounds healthy and mostly without painful strain.
I'm glad to read that many liked her Music Station performance though. Perhaps I'm just out of touch with what she sounds like in present day.

Her voice has changed quite a bit since she lost her hearing and the technique she uses nowadays is VASTLY different from what she used in 2000-2003. She's gotten way more husky and less nosepinchy screechy.

She can hit those notes in that old technique as proven by some acapella stuff, but I think she is advised to NOT sing like that for the 'actual show'.

I think we should talk about this new arrangement for A song for xx.

IMO, it is good.

Some people think it is overdramatic.

It's a shame that they cut the song, ASFXX works because of that build up towards the end and it's kind of over before it's started at this length.

I personally love that she was treating a TV live the same way as an arena live with all the dramatics! hahaha
YES.

I like the petal storm. It's a nice touch.

I don't get why people think celebrities shouldn't repeat their clothes... If it works, go on with it

i think the only thing is that she is in controll of her voice. in the a nation version where its raining she can hold a vocal very long and out of nowhere she pushes out a very deep sound . its just controlling of her voice and knowing what shes capable of

Her vocals may not be perfect here (but I still liked these more than her 2008-2009 voice) in my opinion, but I still liked this performance because her 20 dancers weren't there taking my attention away from her. :p

Visually stunning performance, not so great vocals. She usually rocks ASFXX vocals live so was expecting better.

She's been singing since 1995 basically, people can't honestly expect her voice to be the
same right?

Really embarassing to watch! Why is she throwing herself like this? Seriously it is rather ridiculous than something else.
Vocally? It is time to call back her US coach! I feel shame that after all of this time she is not able to sing anymore. I know many singers who sing since... well longer than her (do more concerts than her per year, world tour and sing only live and they're not pop singers) and they're better in 2016 than when they began (if that was even possible for some).

I don't think she needs to worry about money since, according to Forbes, she is the 7th richest female singer in the world. If I had $400 million in my bank account I would never repeat a piece of clothing either

I loved the performance! I Just wish the arrangement was identical from the track on A BEST.
