And the world bore witness to the weaboo culture. And the weaboos looked back upon the world, and said it was good.

I guess they must've, because WE here on the board sure didn't... Confused

This is a funny little thing that happened. I wish they chose a different song. This one was a little intense at times.

I dunno... I think she was lip-synching.

In Letterman's mind: "Well....that was different."

Seriously a bad song. Composition was great, arrangement was great, but I couldn't understand a damn word she said. Was the song in Japanese or English? I can understand even the hardest Asian accents (I'm half Asian and my mom is very heavy) but I couldn't understand anything in that song. This is the main issue I have with vocaloid music. This issue seems to happen a lot.

The one time this year I used my basic cable. The HD was beautiful. Came across to me that the song sounded a bit Americanized. I suppose that just means I'm more American than I thought cause I really liked it.

Listening harder, she's speaking English.

She sang the english song that was created for that Miku Expo; yes the entire song is in english, but I do agree about it being hard to understand. Heck, I've read through the lyrics twice while listening to the song before and still can't understand 85% of it when I dont have the lyrics in front of me. I do absolutely love that song, I guess I just wish whoever made the song did a better job with the pronunciation? It works like that, right?

The audience's applause sounded so confused when the song ended, haha.

I'm pretty sure it's in English. I think it's the one they wrote for Miku Expo LA. Either way, it was pretty bad. I wish they'd used a well-known Miku song like Love is War or World is Mine. Even the English version of Tell Your World is better than this.

I agree that the song isn't the best... They chose an English song so the viewer could understand, but not in that English... Engrish... whatever.

I watched it. Looked pretty good to me. Typical Hatsune Miku, but with a nice glossy finish.

Much better than those guys on the other show, singing in slow raspy voices.

Letterman looked so awkward and confused. He usually goes up to shake the artist's hand but since she's not real, all he could do was stand there and wave. Yeah... It could've gone better.
