Netizens applaud BoA for delivering a great live performance despite her severe stage fright at '2018 FNS Music Festival'

Back on December 5, BoA attended Japan's annual '2018 NFS Music Festival' during its first night of performances, to perform her hit Christmas track "Meri-Chri". 

Many fans of BoA know that she actually suffers from severe stage fright, even after 18 years in the music industry. The singer shared in the past that her stage fright developed after her Japanese debut stage, due to the bad live mistakes she made during that stage. 

It seemed that BoA took to the stage with a lot of nerves once again on December 5, for her 'NFS Music Festival' performance. Netizens noticed that BoA's hand, holding her microphone, trembled noticeably during the first part of her stage:

Later on, BoA could be seen holding her microphone tightly with two hands: 

Then clutching her skirt with her other hand if she weren't using both hands. 

Despite her nerves, BoA delivered a great live stage of her classic, Japanese favorite, and netizens applauded her with comments such as, "OMG, that was her performance when she was trembling nervous?? Can't imagine how amazing she'd be without the nerves...", "She is so respectable, and I feel for her, and so cute and pretty", "Wonder how much she fights to overcome her stage fright each time... so proud of her", "She looks like a princess, she did amazing", and more. 

You can catch BoA's full "Meri-Chri" performance above!

No comment on her singing? Are you sure you've watched FNS? She sang like a debut artist, she looked trembling, nervous and her voice was a little unstable

She does start off nervously but she gets into pulling off a strong performance fast. I loved this song when it was released and it's still great today, a real classic.

But she's done lots of concerts especially in Japan, at this point, I feel its more being nervous than stage-fright

Her hand shivered for like 2 seconds and I just figured it was because she's been holding the mic with the same hand the entire song? And that's why she started to hold it with two hands for support? And her hand holding her dress has always been a mannerism of hers when she wears gowns to performances. Idk what akp is talking about. She went flat on the first note but that was it. BoA's been singing in Japanese live since 2000 so I don't know why one commenter talked about how nervous she was about not lipsyncing. Never change AKP.

hmmm, she has said that she has stage fright before. she said that nothing scares her more than being onstage.


while i agree that the author of this article may be reading into some of her mannerisms... they are also mannerisms which could be indicative of her stage fright. if she ALWAYS fiddles with her dress, it isn't too unlikely that it could be almost self-stimulation/a method of calming herself.

Didn't know that. But when she's on korean music shows she seems really comfortable. She doesn't look nervous during promotions of her last single (Woman). Why is different? I mean, there is also public watching her on stage. Or is just in Japan stages?

Artists use backing tracks on music shows, maybe that's why she's more comfortable there.

As far as I know Japanese people are very strict about singing, they have to sing live. Maybe she sings lipsync while in Korea so she's more comfortable. I don't know. Maybe... 😏
