I'm glad she didn't win that audition to become a FLOWER member. I think she's better as a solo artist, but will LDH promote her well?

she's attractive no doubt. i wonder if they pick looks first then voice cuz happiness and flower need stronger vocalists imo. in her case it sounds like she's breathing through her mouth or singing with a cold.

she's cute, her voice is nice but not unique and her look is being done to death right now by every J R&B flower princess so I doubt she will have success

shoulda joined Flower

Pretty girl, but a boring song and there's nothing really special about her voice.

well, LDH sucks at promoting their female talents, no question about that...

She was performing at Tokyo Girls Collection last year. I heard her live and I think she sounds better than the one on the video up there.
I thought she kinda look like Horikita Maki at first...

nothing special, but hopefully her voice will get better as her career moves along.

I wish they would stop using Exile's name to promote their artists. I mean, come on. If you were really good, you don't need to be in someone's shadow to bring attention to you.

She's cute but nothing too extraordinary enough for me to go out there and buy her CD. I'm glad she
wasn't selected to be in Flower. She would've had to compete for more attention if she was.
