I have been waiting for this.
But in all seriousness, I have been so looking forward to this performance. Out of all the solos specifically written for Sayu, as well as the songs she’s covered, I think this one best suits her. It’s super cutesy and narcissistic, but also a little bit flirty and poison-tongued; and above all, it’s self-aware.
(By the way, can you imagine how excited must Sayu have been to have two cute fluffy pink backdancers to worship her? Oh wait, you don’t have to, she gushed about it nonstop on her blog for about a week.)
I’m really proud of Sayumi’s improvement over the last few years. Yes, her dancing is still kind of lackluster, and she still only hits about half of the notes in a given song, but now you can tell she’s working hard to at least express different moods with her voice. Before, it was pretty much all one voice, no matter what kind of song she was singing. But now she really get into the mood of the song, whether or not she can get into the right key signature. And her expressions are enough to give a fangirl heart palpitations, though that’s not so new.
(Murr, the one with the pigtails is Murota Mizuki, the girl I want for 12th gen/new egg group. She’s a cute ball of energy and funniness and talent.)
