It's no coincidence this vocal habit began being used more as her ears got worse.
Or when you speak like that all the time you eventually start singing like that too, like a bad influence.

There's honestly no evidence for that claim. I'll agree to disagree, my opinion is mostly based on all the health-related statements she's made over the years and how common it is for singers to get serious vocal strain and damage. I think it's amazing that she is still singing despite the barriers she's transparently talked about.

Did Ayu sing in the final song for FNS? I don't think so, but I didn't watch until the end

I remember she stopped doing the cutesy voice for interviews a few years ago. I haven't been following her speaking that much, so now I'm confused when she started doing it again

Her extensions definitely weren't blended well, the way her natural hair sat far from the extensions were distracting.

She sounded really good during Dreamed a Dream! She sounded okay during You & Me; I'd expect vocals like that with a performance that was more active, but she didn't move around as much. Not sure if a joint was acting up or if it was intentional.

The ponytail during her FNS performance is the same as it is in the beginning of the Dreamed a Dream PV:

I'm getting bored of her same costume for the past....2-3 years? she has been wearing this combo and style in different colours and materials like as if she's part of the dancers. With her glam team and all the expensive fashion brands she wear off stage you think she can at least give us variety. I don't wanna compare but even Jolin, Blackpink, or any Taiwanese/Korean Singer nowadays are wearing relatable fashion on stage. At ayu's level I don't think it's hard for her to get sponsorship/loan.

furthermore, does anybody notice she lacks that "passion" now when performing? Like she just stand there looking like she's memorising her lyrics? It doesn't help that her botox makes her look like Park Bom from 2ne1.

I just sometimes feel sad for her.

It's a standard summer performance on TV. It's OK, but it lacks energy. Her vocals were fine, they were pretty stable, considering all the things.

She did use her Balenciaga costume from TROUBLE Tour at one live show (I guess it was on Movin' on without you).

Nowadays, I feel the same during her lives at TV. Maybe she's focusing on singing and do the right thing because she received a lot of backlash about it and about her appearance (huh). Just look at the Natsu no TROUBLE, aired last month, she's relaxed there.

Park Bom literally suffers from chronic lymphadenitis, according to the artist herself... which yes, causes face swelling... so let's not. Removing off-topic posts.

Did not like it. Vocals were bad. She was either using her horrible cutesy voice or screaming and there was no passion at all. Seemed as if she was just performing because it's her job.

The end of You and Me sounded really nice. She sounds great when not overwhelmed with loud instrumentals or backing tracks and I wish she would embrace this a bit more and lean into more acoustic-type performances.

Loved it, definitely was not expecting that cutesy voice at the start but it somehow works. You & Me was good too, although yes, I got distracted by the hair at some points.

It was a good TV performance. I'm not very into her TV performances because she always lacked passion and energy on those through her whole career IMO... And the frequent backlash she received in the past years probably made she be more self concious about her singing aswell.

@se7entheaven obviously has not been watching her concerts.

Finally Japan start to follow Korea, not too strict about the live tv show. So the show can be more international. Even though the quality is so low

I think her vocal is great here.

I also did not liked it. For such a good track like Dreamed a dream, I just did not felt any kind of excitement. The cutesy voice also bothered me, especially since it was even more visible than usual. Maybe she's tired , who knows. Hopefully, a-nation will be better.

In her defense she clearly feeds off a live audience a lot; her engagement levels are really high when she’s performing for people. I can imagine it’s weird AF to do this in a studio environment in a camera, and her energy levels here didn’t feel too dissimilar to Natsu no TROUBLE so I’m not particularly surprised.
