Hatsune Miku Makes Her American Debut on DAVID LETTERMAN

Remember that futuristic stage performance Abel told us about on yesterday’s Music Dispatch? Well, a wild Hatsune Miku did indeed appear to make her American performance debut on The Late Show With David Lettermanlast night. Viewers got to rock out to her recent single “Sharing the World,” which seems apt for the virtual Japanese pop star who often steps out of virtual reality to share the IRL-verse with us meat sacks. You can take a look at the image-projected performance in all of its glory right here:

Letterman’s response after the round of applause garnered by Hatsune Miku’s performance: “It’s like being on Willie Nelson’s bus.” Many who’ve never seen Hatsune Miku in action will surely share this sentiment, and I can’t say they’d be wrong for feeling that way either. The song choice and the hardly distinguishable English-dubbed lyrics aren’t as catchy as what we’re use to from the Vocaloid princess, so this is probably not the best first impression Hatsune Miku could have made on American television. The good news is, however, that we’ve still got the Miku Expo coming up for people who might not have enjoyed or understood last night’s showcase.

    bitch please! it’s very hard to have a good idea to make a good song for miku the ones who made them had a hard time making it and producing it so shut your mouths when you have nothing good to say did someone ever taught you that “when you have nothing good to say just
     shut up?!”

    I like vocaloid, but they chose a horrible song out of many good ones and there are other vocaloids that can actually speak English… Not a good way to introduce Americans to vocaloid.

  3. Someone says:

    I like vocaloid, but this was one of the worst songs out of many to use to introduce Americans… Should’ve use a better song.

    Gorillaz really did make it pretty much impossible for any VR pop or rock star to be anything other than mediocre and unoriginal in comparison, at least in the Western world.

    It’s Krieger’s Girlfriend!

    I liked it. But, she is now in AMERICA. Speak at least UNDERSTANDABLE words, and COME ON. Really? All she did was kinda stand there and shake one leg for a while, and spin a couple times. If you are gonna make it so we cant UNDERSTAND anything, just make it entertaining to WATCH.

    The voice is annoying.

    sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks have regrouped

  10. EM says:

    It’s not even the concept that bothers me, so much as the actual design of the character itself.

  11. Laura F. says:

    Why bother to have “musicians” on stage then? SMH

  12. redtail says:

    I like j – pop and this was horrible.

    I for one welcome the coming cyberpunk future and the rise of our virtual reality j-pop overlords.
