i think hide&seek wasnt her best choice for that "important" performance... :/

I like how they updated the dance but I still wish she performed a different song that showed off her singing and dancing more. I think Want Me, Want Me would have been a good song because it has a catchy beat and she sounds pretty good live. It appeals more to a world audience compared to Hide&Seek which is full of altered vocals >_< imo.

I can definitely understand her being nervous; she's performing in front of people who have absolutely no idea who she is. she looked stunning, but I definitely would have liked to see something newer performed. What a Feeling or even Do Me More would have been good choices. regardless, she did well.

I think Hide&Seek was appropriate. It has energy and it's one of several songs that seems most appealing to Western listeners. She relied too much on the backup track and she looked down a lot, but she seemed to gain more confidence near the end. I'm very happy she performed nonetheless :)

I'm just glad Namie won the award, and not, well, i'm sure you all know who i'm talking about: the makeup monster who shall go unnamed.

^ lol that "monster" has also won the award before in the past :D (heh I don't mind her, though I prefer Namie ^^)

I think Namie did good--but it would have been way better if she used less back track and looked up more. I don't think I've ever seen her this nervous during a performance... I'm so used to seeing her confident while performing...
So happy she won ^_^

Yay Namie! <3

aww... y is everyone not liking the choice, i think it was sorta perfect, thoooooo i do agree that less back track should have been used but at least it was turned down enough so that u could hear her voice more over the track other than that Namie did great!! period!

I don't think Paris said it wrong I think it's the English way to say her name . Pretty cute though ....

There is no "English way" to say Namie's name - Paris said it wrong. Had her name been "Nami", then Paris would've pronounced it correctly.

Not putting the blame on Paris for not pronouncing it correctly, but someone should've told her how to say it.

I don't think that's true, like there are names pronounced differently in Spanish like John, Jasmine, etc. so I'm sure some Japanese names are different in english like some english names are different in Japanese you see?
So while in Japan Namie is pronounced the way it is it may be pronounced like that in English, so you don't know if there is an English way or not. But Namie hasn't been around many English speaking places so we wouldn't know now would we.

Paris did pronounced Namie's name wrong. I mean we all learned how to pronounce Japanese words in order to say it correctly she was just to lazy to learn how to say it right. I mean if I was giving out an award I would want to say their name right in respect to them, especially if they come from another country or speak another language.

Anyways what I was gonna post before I saw a few comments was that I saw Namie on the World Music Awards today. So I was excited to see her being shown in America. Nice to see.

In the US, all Japanese names are pronounced like they would be in Japan. Just watch any movie or any other award show, involving Japanese names, and you'll see.

The reason names from the US and other places are pronounced differently in Japan has (among other things) do to with the Japanese alphabet. My name, for example, would have to be written with an R instead of an L, because the Japanese alphabet doesn't include L. Just google for hiragana or katakana, and you'll see.
