She's the best they could find in over 10,000 contestants? Wow. I'd hate to hear the others.

Wow, her voice is literally shaking because of how nervous she is. Not that I can blame her, that shit is terrifying.

Sorry, with all respect, that was horrible.

Himeka was way better back in 2008, she's simply awesome!

Well to be fair, this was an early round performance. I assume she simply didn't know the song as well or got a lot more confidence for the later rounds. It would be interesting to compare it to her final performance of Infinity if it is floating around.
