beginning she's fighting with her mic stand which doesn't suit her. At
some point she throws it away and wants to have another one. Meanwhile
she sings with only the mic itselves, which is difficult for her to hold
all the time as well as drinking out of the water bottle. It's not only

through. On the other hand, according to her condition and the visual
aspect, we all ask ourselves afterwards, did we like this or rather not?
