Thanks to abc Production I got see Jason Derulo last night. I saw his Isle of Malta show on MTV and I knew that he’d be putting up a great show. But I was surprised at how personal he made the show. Of course there was dancing but there was also quite good singing and a lot of nice and quick talks. What I loved too is how the atmosphere was super laid back and everyone seemed to have a great time!
Marcus & Martinus
The night started with the newest teenie crush Marcus & Martinus. The two very young and very sweet twins are the next Justin Bieber. The two gathered quite an audience who came just for them. The girls were partying already. It was super cute to watch and of course you could hear lots of screaming because good old clapping is out 😀 I have to say I was quite sceptical at first but they did a pretty good job warming up the crowd with their pop music. Most girls already had the time of their life!
DJ Jae Murphy
Due to the support act there was a very funny mixture in the audience. You had the kids and teenies, the peeps who were into dancing, couples and women in their twenties and thirties who knew Jason Derulo songs from their night out. For the next 20 minutes Jason Derulo’s DJ Jae Murphy took the stage and turned the Hallenstadion into a Club. He set the perfect mood for the following 90 mins with Jason Derulo.
At 9 a very long intro video showed Jason Derulo in Africa explaining to us why the tour is called 2 Sides. Jason is half human half lion. And that’s how he came on stage – like a lion king with “Watcha Say”. After a very old song he threw in his newest song “Tip Toe” and he literally was on his tip toes and of course almost all clothes had to go so he could show off his abs. With “Don’t wanna go home / Shots” we definitely got turned into a club and lots of people were already dancing on front of their seats. Because of the laid back atmosphere people didn’t feel like they had to be afraid of standing up.
One of my personal favourites “Wiggle” was next. However I didn’t really like the way they performed it live. I felt like the wiggles weren’t too clear, it was kinda too rocky. What we also noticed is that – were we sat – the mix wasn’t too good. The music was louder than Jason Derulo’s voice. A beautiful ballade called “Trumpets” was next where we could get out our phone lights. Derulo now said that he is doing something special he wants to try out new music for his family: “Make Up” – a very cool uptempo song with his typical style. You can be looking forward to hearing it!
“In my Head”, “Get Ugly”, “Let me be the one” (Yes, he brought out the treadmills on stage for that and I cannot tell you how much I love that effect) and “Marry Me” followed. Of course lots of girls wished that Jason Derulo would asked that question to them LOL And the romantic atmosphere continued. Derulo asked his back ground singer who was in beautiful dress to join him up front. Together they sang the Little Mix duet “Secret Love Song”. And let me tell you wow her voice blew us away!
Up next was “IT-GIRL” and the girls put their signs up “Can I be your it-girl?”. After the first few chords he interrupted the song and said “Hold Up, Hold up I cannot sing this song without an IT-Girl”. His bodyguard picked a girl from the front row and she was brought on stage to be serenaded by Jason Derulo. She couldn’t believe it and for us it was great fun to watch!
Where are my single ladies at?
With that he introduced his next song “Ridin’ solo”. This hit was followed by “If I’m lucky” and “Cheyenne” where his dancing was supported by a haunted house in the background. “Swalla” with Nicki Minaj was next and it was time to shimmy 😀 Before we had to be “Breathing” 😉 It is amazing how many songs you actually know just from going out and listening on the radio. Jason Derulo has so many hits and knows how to put them together in show! “Goodbye” started and I already thought oh oh it’s time to say Goodbye. What a great song to finish! But he wasn’t finished yet 🙂
Normally the artists go off stage and we start “Oh Oh Oh” to the bass line of Seven Nation Army but this time we did it together! 🙂 And finally Jason Derulo talked dirty to us! At this point I was a bit worried about the kids singing this song because I mean I hope they don’t know what “Talk dirty 2 me” is 😀 Jason closed the show with “Want to Want me” and all I could think of was why isn’t Luke Bryan popping up with some headphones on? If you don’t know what I’m talking about here’s the link:
Amazing right??!! And sooo funny haha
But what came next I really didn’t expect at all and it was my absolute highlight of last night. Jason Derulo walked into the middle of the stage into the crowd and said:
Thank you for coming out tonight. I hope you saw that every piece of this show is a piece of my heart. My crew is like my family and you are now part of it too.
I do not take this for granted. You are the reason why I am able to live my dream. And you can live you dream too. I don’t care how old you are, what you religion is or the colour of your skin. I want you to have what you desire so go after it! I don’t care how long it takes. Make it happen! ‘Cause I believe in you and you should believe in you too!
I love y’all! God Bless you and Good night!
What a way to finish this amazing 90 mins show! Again thank you abc production and thank you Jason Derulo!
