Gooooooooooooood morning! I’m in such a good mood today, had pleasant dreams of my late grandpa and awoke to mom calling me asking me what specifications I want for my new laptop! 🙂 Awesomeness.
Okay so from [this post] and [my tweets], I bet you possies already know I headed down to the Ne-Yo concert which was held on the 7th January 2010. That was a relatively good gig, to be honest! 🙂 It was organized by XPAX in collaboration with Phuture Phlow
They even had to line up in a U shape because
the queue was too friggin long
Anyhoos, it began with the hosts for the event, which happens to be Fly.FM radio announcers, hyping up the crowd. A local individual talent, R&B/soul singer Najwa Mahiaddin entertained us as the opening act for Ne-Yo as well.
The stage set-up this time round was a tad more special
The lighting was really pretty!
With snowflake-lookalike-spotlights this time round
Very soon after, thunderous chants from the crowd beckoned Ne-Yo to come upstage and he did! I applaud the fact that this gentleman did not make us wait that long (unlike other international acts that came over) All *cough* American *cough* Rejects
“This will not be my LAST TIME to Malaysia! You’ll see me again fo shure”
He kick-started the ball rolling with his ‘Because of You’. Everyone sang along with him! What I found special was that there was a live band accompanying him – with saxophones and horns! Pretty jazzy babeh.
“For the next 3 minutes and 90 seconds… I’ll be your boyfriend”
“I know all of you came here to watch Ne-Yo but thank you all so much for taking the time to listen to some of my songs”
Also, he proven his worth not just as a singer (hardly any noticable lip-syncing if not none! Unlike.. *cough* A.. *cough* kon) but also as a songwriter. Along with his own songs, he belted out Mario Berett’ ‘You Should Let Me Love You’, Beyonce’s ‘Irreplaceble’, Rihanna’s ‘Take a Bow’ of which he penned.
I reckon it could be the best night for a certain lady from the VIP zone, as
Oh Gosh. Happy happy joy joy! Now if only it was my birthday too… *dreams*
It was apparent that Ne-Yo put his best foot forward as he came decked sharply with a black shirt over a white tank-top, with matching white slacks and of course, his Fedora hat. Together with that and packing a punch with his signature feet-shuffling
Ne-Yo and his team of back-up dancers gave an electrifiying dance routine, dancing with props such as metal chairs and costumes such as a bridal wear (!) amongst other matching outfits. Guess he danced too much and sweated like a mad cow as he continued performing with a blue sweat towel, perhaps sub-consciously, methinks.
“In a relationship, one should never EVER, EVER.. EVER… EVER EVER
EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER
