The music scene was very exciting in 2010. BIGLOBE MUSIC held their “BIGLOBE MUSIC AWARDS”, BIGLOBE MUSIC and BIGLOBE Search paired up and the nominations were of artists who were looked up often. BIGLOBE’s site had users vote from December 3~December 13th. In addition to votes cast, artists got points from users who accessed them through BIGLOBE MUSIC. We are now announcing the winners of the 4 categories: Best Artist, Best New Artist, Best Single and Best Album.

“They have a first class sound, dance performance and live performance. With the strength of their teamwork, I think they could advance to the world!! I’m looking forward to their performances abroad next year too!!”

(30s, male, Shimane Prefecture): “This is appropriate for their 10 year anniversary. Just the 3 of them were able to fill the Tokyo Dome with 50,000 people. They put on a happy performance and they have charm, there’s even more to them than that!!”

I tried watching BudokaaaaaaaaaaaaN! but the in first perfomance I saw they were lipsynching and I was like WTF they got a giant stadium to perform and they lipsynch? I quickly reforwarded the rest of the concert and I saw a lot of talk and more lipsynch but I'm interesed in watching them performing LIVE in a concert as you say, please link me to a live concert performance.

One of their original songs that they always sing live:

And two covers that they do often at concerts:

thanx for the vid. they could/should sing live more often. it's not like they sing out of tune (at least from what i hear from these)...

and i've just realized something i should have guessed. The audience is like 90% male right ? ^^' i didn't realize it until i watched second vid'.

It's because their dance routines usually get in the way of singing, but their signature vocal sound is hard to replicate live, too. A lot of their early songs like "Foundation" (the first video) weren't as heavy on vocal manipulation as their more recent ones.

And they started out with a majority of male fans, but their female fanbase has gotten significantly bigger, so maybe... 65% male? lmao

The third video was utterly cute! It's the first time I see Kashiyuka without bangs LOL. And their live doesn't sound bad actually, why not do it often. Btw, I always thought, for performances, those vocal effects were done by adjusting the mic =X
