Note: Sara Kurashima was scheduled to be the last one of the first class but due her anxiety and nervousness Principal Kuramoto decided Sara to perform before Megumi Okada. Once Sara started to sing her song she got so nervous that had to stop singing. Mori Sensei asked her to do her best to finish the performance. Since she couldn't recover took a few minutes off stage. When she returned tried to sing the song again but her nervousness once again let her blank in front of the audience, she left the stage once again with tears in her eyes. After that Megumi performed her song and dedicated her performance to Sara. Sara could finally finish her performance on LoGiRL's latest episode (Watch here).
