Aid allies by singing and dancing your way to victory.

In-game "Help" description

Well, this is no time for stage fright!

Yuna

Once I get a mic in my hands, it's all over!

Rikku

No holding back. If you can't keep up, stay off my dance floor.

Paine

Template:See Also Songstress's menu icon. The Songstress (歌姫, Utahime?) is a dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2. It is used in the first boss battle with Leblanc as a tutorial for spherechanging. It specializes inflicting status ailments on enemies and buffing the party. It has no means of attacking unless afflicted with Berserk or using the Mug command, whereupon Songstress attacks an enemy with her microphone, causing a small explosion with musical notes.

Appearance

The Songstress combines the traditional Final Fantasy jobs of Bard and Dancer, the jobs' abilities devoted to buffing the party and debilitating foes. The Songstress dons light dancing clothes with floral sleeves and uses a microphone as a weapon. Yuna's appearance is replicated from Lenne, the spirit harnessed as the Songstress, which plays an important part in the story.

For unknown reasons, when Leblanc uses this dressphere in the beginning of the game, it turns her from an exact double of Yuna in her summoner appearance into Yuna's Songstress outfit. This may be because Leblanc was using Yuna's Garment Grid with Yuna's summoner appearance considered her "default" before the Freelancer class was created.

Commands

Songstress has two main commands, Dance, which applies an effect to either the enemy or player party which stays in place as long as the Songstress is dancing, and Sing, which increases the player party's stats. While dancing, musical notes appear around the girl and waves of light bounce around her in a circle. While singing an upward swirl of lights and ascending musical notes appear.

Abilities

Mastering Songstress requires 740 Ability Points. Dance and Sing cannot be accessed outside of the Songstress dressphere because of the animations used.

Both books of Magical Dances must be obtained as treasures in Chapter 5; Vol. I can be found inside the Den of Woe, while Vol. II is given to the party in Djose Temple after defeating the Machine Faction's Experiment machina at its maximum level.

Yuna's Songstress phone strap.

Each member of the YRP had official phone strap accessories released in the wake of Final Fantasy X-2. Unlike Rikku and Paine, Yuna had two versions of a phone strap: one in her Gunner gear, and another one of her as a Songstress.

Trivia

Dancing Queen xtro.PNG
  • Yuna and Rikku appear in their Songstress outfits during in-game cutscenes, like the concert atop the Celsius in Chapter 2 and the dancing mini-game in Chapter 4.
  • Each girl is singing a scat rendition of her musical theme when using the Sing command. In the Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster, the girls' singing may be delayed as they will sometimes sing mid-battle long after having used an ability, or after winning a battle, though they still may sing "right on cue".
  • Obtaining Magical Dances, Vol. II, needed for learning Magical Masque, awards the Dancing Queen Trophy in Final Fantasy X-2 HD Remaster. Its icon is the Songstress icon over a crystal.
  • The Shmooth Shailing accessory obtained through scoring 150+ points in the dancing minigame is arguably a bespoke Songstress accessory as, on top of its defense enhancing and negative status negating properties, it bestows a permanent slow effect that serves to prolong the effects of a dancing Songstress.
