Surprised it wasn't mentioned (it may have I haven't seen it though), but all H!P members (Sans Oota) will be performing solo tracks on a program called "Hello! Project presents... "Solo Festival!" on TV Asahi on 7/4




Maimi had the honor to draw the order. I wonder if she even knows all these girls lol.


Results under the spoiler:




I definitely won't watch it live since it starts at 7am where I live. But apparently someone will stream it on twitch.

Also, after Yuhane, Shimakura Rika will be the second Beyooooonds girl to release a photobook.

After the voting (done by the members) the winners are:

(I linked to twitter videos of their performances.)
I'm really glad they actually chose girls who tried out something. Singing is cool and all, but when you're not the best singer you just fall flat. For a TV performance you need charisma, and all top 5 were really good.
By the way, there was also a prize: The winner will produce a show to air in September.
Twitter vids to all performances:

Imma be an ass and double post because I've got another big post incoming. I've ranked the performances according to my opinion:


I'm okay with the official results, though. I really feared Masaki or Karin would win, but the girls preferred originality.

Miyo would have been my favorite had she stuck to singing. Her dancing was uninspired, while her singing was far above anyone else that night. Ruru was my overall favorite.

There was a while back during Platinum Era where Risa and Takahashi were starting to look alike. Eri too for a bit. Now Mizuki and Erina are doing the same thing.

So are Ayumi and Masaki and the only think stopping Sakura is her lack of bangs.

Someone needs a image change. A drastic one.

Apparently, it was UFP that decided the girls' song.


Now all the tweets are gone, I'm going to search all this after work.

I think that's talking about the ballads tour.

Woah, the whole account is gone. Either they decided that was easier than to delete the vids individually or they got bad mail from the tv channel. Welp.


On H!P's summer tour, eh. I wonder how attached the girls get to their songs, seeing that Miimi didn't even know hers lol.

I'm all in for a comeback of Ai's platinum blonde shortcut. And go full out and give it to Mizuki. Nobody would see that coming.

(Out of the oldest five she had the least variety in hairstyle. Actually... she's always had the same one, right? Just went brown at some point.)

I haven’t seen the whole Solo Feat yet but I’ve watched some clips on Facebook. Yamagishi Riko’s chair dance was so painfully awkward for so many reasons, I couldn’t even finish the video. 😬😬

My girl Miki was absolutely glowing though. And Miyo surprised me with her dance skills AND vocals. Honestly I feel like she’s too good for Beyonds.

Sakura and Sayuki both covered MISIA's Aitakute Ima.

Sayuki: https://www.youtube....h?v=xr7g6NKFLxY


I wonder if this is a teaser for their cover summer concerts.

To the surprise of no one, MM's spring tour has been fully cancelled.


Hope we get to see the rest of the footage from the rehearsal filming.

I expected Sayubee to do better than Sakura on this because her voice is just naturally more suited to MISIA songs, but I wasn't expecting her to be this much better. Towards the end of Sakura's version, I was reminded of something I wrote about Reina Tanaka in my MM vocalist rankings from several years ago: "I have been impressed with the talent of her voice many times, but I can't remember a single time I've ever been moved by it." I don't know if I would say that I've never been moved by Sakura's singing, but I wasn't on this. To be fair, her voice isn't built for this kind song, but I was mostly bored by her performance. Sayuki, on the other hand, murdered this even beyond my expectations. Smooth and sultry on the quiet passages, easy power on the choruses, and genuine emotion throughout. I really loved it.
It's cool that they let both of them actually ad lib on the end, rather than "ad lib" a pre-written melody. Sakura's high note was very nice, and the highlight of her performance for me.
Also, here's a YT link to the combined version of the entire song: https://www.youtube....h?v=cIdjdCwbO9c

Holy shit, Sayuki was AMAZING. Talk about knocking it out of the park! This is by far my favorite performance from her, hands down. The emotion, passion, everything she put into this, you can just feel the love and respect for the song and its meaning she has. It was perfect for her voice as well.


I’m super excited to see how the solos will pan out now.

If they're making studio recordings, there's no reason not to release a cover album...
