The Songstress is a dressphere in Final Fantasy X-2. The Songstress is a job that closely, if not exactly, mimics what a traditional Final Fantasy bard does, only with a more modern name. Perhaps the one disadvantage is that a bard can do nothing but sing a song in this version and has really no offensive abilities. The Songstress dons light dancing clothes with floral sleeves and uses a microphone. Unlike other Dresspheres, it is key to the main plot, as it houses the spirit of Lenne.

Similar to the special Dresspheres' Break Damage and HP Limit abilities, the MP Mambo and Magical Masque dances only become available after obtaining two Key Items. MP Mambo requires the Key Item Magical Dances, Vol I, which is given to the player after they defeat all the bosses in the Den of Woe in Chapter 5. Magical Dances, Vol II, the Key Item to unlock Magical Masque, is the reward for defeating the Experiment in Chapter 5 when all its stats are at level 5.

"Well, this is no time for stage fright!"
"Once I get a mic in my hands, it's all over!"
"No holding back. If you can't keep up, stay off my dance floor."

For unknown reasons, when LeBlanc uses this dressphere in the beginning of the game, it turns her into an exact double of Yuna in her songstress outfit. It is not explained why this is so, as Dresspheres usually outfit the user with their own unique outfit, and they otherwise retain their own physical appearance. This may be because LeBlanc was using Yuna's Dressphere or Garnment Grid and not her own.

Acquiring Songstress

In the beginning of the game, Rikku and Paine go after Yuna's imposter at the Luca concert. After battling her on stage, chasing her down the docks, and fighting Logos and Ormi, the real Yuna demands the impostor give back her Garment Grid with the Songstress dressphere.
