well, first of all, if she's serious, why would she forget the lyrics? though since it's her first time, i guess she deserves a chance. but seriously, engage the audience, make a joke out of it and laugh it off. anything's better than running away >.<

It's not that weird a singer forgetting lyrics.. It happens, we're all humans.
I just think running away wasn't a good idea.. Hum the song and make the audience sing, say you forgot, apologize and ask to start over.. It's better than running off.


Yeah you're right! A lot of singers use the audience to sing their song anyway!

I am so relieved and glad with joy.
The 1st day of her December mini-live tour was successful.

A hard-working person like she must succeed....

Our country's president messed up the lyrics of national anthem while singing live, beat that.

She's not japanese so it's understandable. But running away is just making a big deal out of this. Maybe is she didn't run away, then maybe the fans wouldn't have noticed.

I really do not understand the tolerance here. It obviously comes from people that look at the sage from the front. From the back running away it's the easiest thing to do when you make a mistake. I hope this really shames her forever. She does not deserve any compassion.

She is a professional, a childish attitude like this should not be tolerated. Even for us, amateurs, it's not, so why should it be for her? "Oh, she ran away poor thing" is something that does not fit my mind. Everyone makes mistakes? Indeed, and people much better than her. But this is what distinguishes good artists from average artists: good artists have the courage to face their mistakes.

She may have fullfilled her dream, but she's not good enough to keep going. She's just one more weekly superstar. People like this fade away in an instant.


I strongly agree with this. People on stage make mistakes, it happens to everyone on stage in some way or another at some point if they do it long enough. It's to be expected, and how a person handles the situation, in my opinion, is a perfect judge of their character. What this showed about her is she's childish, unprofessional and can't handle stress. Maybe she'll grow from this and handle the situation better next time, it doesn't change the fact this was one of the worst things a person performing could do.

Understandable...Pretty embarrassing to forget lyrics to a song =/

Nov 29, 2009 7:35 PM by MLopes724

Of course people pity her. I do myself. I've performed several times onstage.. (not professional) and while I myself haven't forgotten my lines in an actual performance, I've forgotten my lines in one important judging event. It was horrible. I worked through it, and stayed there though, and I can't imagine how much more embarrassing it must have been to run away. Running away is more embarrassing in my opinion, and more difficult to deal with then just trying to finish. I didn't forget my lines due to lack of practice though, I just had an undiagnosed memory problem for a little bit, something like amnesia. Talk about embarrassing, my drama instructor was hoping for high scores for me too. :/
It's only human to forget things under a huge amount of stress. She just needs to work harder next time, and not leave the stage..

sad but hey, it's human nature to forget, now you just gotta forgive

I remembered that a singer messed up with our national anthem during Manny Pacquiao's boxing match XD

So I guess that's just forgivable.
