It's footage from a French talk show and they're discussing about Miku. Their words really pissed me off, especially since they OBVIOUSLY did no research on the subject...

Oh geez... first they show a footage of Luka and say that it's Miku, then they misrepresent "Poppippo" as a typical Miku song? Daaaamn. And she really thinks that people appreciating computer generated music is a sign of the apocalypse? :P
Heh... they also make comparisons to the Gorillaz because of the use of the projector screen. However, the vocaloids are different in the sense that the music presented in that concert was written by individuals. There were no giant recording labels behind them writing the songs, so the music is not stuck in one genre.

Just because I'm such a Vocaloid dork, I'm bringing this thread back to the life. Has anyone heard of the uttate mita Cocolu?

Well if you haven't, now you have! She's honestly one of my heroes. This is one of the latest Vocaloid songs that have been released.

Mix: こなたP (mylist/24137372)
Encode: kenken (mylist/13525326)
Vocals: ココル(mylist/13814156) <--- Cocolu

Honest question, not trying to be rude: Why do people call them "utattemita"s instead of just "cover singers" or something like that? It's as weird to me as someone saying "Oh man, Ito Noizi is my favorite bijitsuka!", (although there are lots of people saying "mangaka" and "seiyuu" instead of "comic artist" and "voice actor"). I guess I answered my own question. People just like to use a Japanese word for no particular reason other than "it sounds cooler".

To add on as some food for thought:

It also happens in the reverse as well. Plenty of Japanese people like to use English words in their conversations as well. If you watched Utapuri, you'll notice that the ending song uses plenty of English. On the topic of Utapuri, I suggest you watch Freedel's version if you haven't yet since he pretty much reverses all the English into Japanese. It's hysterical.

More food for thought:

Perhaps "utattemita" would be a more accurate term as well. The word "cover" means that you sing the exact lyrics as the original. On the other hand, some utattemitas dub songs as well which is different because the technical word for dub is to sing it in another language (ex. nano dubs songs in English). Perhaps utattemita is also used because it generalizes it more into one category "I sing".

Not suggesting I'm right but maybe something to think about.

Yeah, I guess I didn't consider the Japanese use of English. That's becoming really common.

It doesn't really bother me as much as my earlier post might imply. I just wanted to know why the term uttatemita was preferred over something in English, and your post answered that very well. If it means something different, and is more than just a word for "Japanese cover singer" then I have no problem with it :)
