Wow! This is almost EXACTLY like the GX version, except for the instrumental intro prior to 1:11, the short a capella bit at 3:18-3:25, and the vocalizations/refrains after 4:25. The arrangement is almost the same. The way she bends her voice as she sings each note is even the same. It's awesome.

That being said, Ringo's voice has a certain quality hers lacks, and since she is imitating Ringo's performance so closely, it's hard not to notice when she comes up a bit short. In particular I think Ringo pushed her voice a bit harder.

ETA: Scribble R is right, her recent performances of the old songs have been quite good IMO.

IMO this cover sounds forced and awkward
the same way koda kumi, ayumi and mika nakashima have been sounding for a while in their live performances
the same way any japanese boyband choreography has always made me feel
a little bit embarassed in empathy for the person doing that

and I don't know why Kameda is giving me funny pedo vibes in the background XD
