Dangerous Woman Tour

091416-dg-ariana-grande-tour-480x360

Yesterday, I went to Ariana Grande’s Dangerous Woman Tour in Sacramento at the Golden 1 Center! It was an unforgettable experience. Opening guests were Victoria Monet and Little Mix. Little Mix is one of my all time favorite groups! They performed many of my favorites including Salute, Black Magic, Shoutout to my Ex, and their latest Touch!

Ariana Grande’s entire set was just amazing. She performed many of my favorites including Be Alright, Problem, Everyday, Love Me Harder, Side to Side, and so much more! She is definitely one of the most talented in the industry right now. Check out these photos below:

2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards

Last night was the 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards at the Forum in Los Angeles! The show recognizes the most popular artists and music from the iHeartRadio app and radio stations. This was the third annual show and probably the best yet. My top favorite performances was Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” and “Castle on the Hill”, The Chainsmokers “Paris” and “Something Just Like This” with special guest Coldplay, Shawn Mendes “Mercy” AND……. of course I can’t forget.. Bruno Mars’ performance of “Treasure” and “That’s What I Like”. (Total throwback with the Treasure mashup.. am I right?!)

The reason why the iHeartRadio Music Awards was extra special this year was not only Bruno performing.. he was also awarded with the Innovator Award. The Innovator Award is the biggest award of the night and honors the artist on their accomplishments in the industry. For him to receive that award is a huge deal. It was a little emotional because I’ve seen him grow, over the last 7 years, into the artist he is today and it was just overwhelming! No doubt I am proud of his achievements and all that he has done. Just like he said.. we’re just getting started! So that whole moment was obviously my favorite moment of the night.

59th Annual Grammy Awards Review

Just last week on Sunday, February 12th, was the 59th Annual Grammy Awards and it was definitely one to remember! The Grammy Awards are one of my favorite award shows .. it truly is music’s biggest night! There were so many great moments. I want to point out some of my favorite performances of the night:

The Weeknd ft. Daft Punk – Starboy/I Feel It Coming Medley

I love the galactic feel to this performance. Even though it was only a quick couple seconds of “Starboy”, it still set the mood of the performance. It was a smooth transition to “I Feel It Coming”. Both are undeniably two of The Weeknd’s biggest hits. “I Feel It Coming” is one of my favorite songs. It’s so reminiscent of Michael Jackson.. the vibe, his voice, everything about it.. I love it!

Keith Urban ft. Carrie Underwood – The Fighter

I was definitely feeling this performance! “The Fighter” is such a tune!!! It’s got a Country Pop feel. Carrie Underwood is just a natural talent.. has a beautiful voice. Their voices go perfectly together. It was a simple performance but I enjoyed it nonetheless! Check this song out if you haven’t already.

Ed Sheeran – Shape of You


Ok, this was one of the performances I could NOT wait for! Ed Sheeran released this single just last month along with “Castle on the Hill” in support of his latest album ” ÷” releasing on March 3rd. There’s no denying that Ed Sheeran has pure talent. He was a one man band.. this performance is a must see! Shape of You” is one of the best songs so far this year..

Katy Perry ft. Skip Marley – Chained to the Rhythm


Can I say first how great Katy Perry looks in blonde hair?! She released this single just 2 days before the Grammys. It’s definitely a hit! Her performance was fun, the set was pretty cool.. some of it was kind of trippy! This performance definitely got the audience moving.

Bruno Mars – That’s What I Like


I mean save the best for last right? Obviously Bruno Mars’ performance of “That’s What I Like” was my FAVORITE. Also want to point out the Hooligans too who were on fire, like always. I mean.. there’s really nothing to say. Bruno is the best in the industry.. no questions asked.

Bruno and the Hooligans also got take part in a special tribute to the one and only Prince with a performance of “Let’s Go Crazy” with a full out Prince inspired costume with white ruffles, a white guitar and even had eyeliner on. This is definitely how a tribute should be done!!! Bruno and the Hooligans nailed it. Just before Bruno took the stage for the Prince tribute, The Time and Morris Day kicked it off with “Jungle Love” and “The Bird“.

A couple more performance I want to note is Beyonce’s performance of “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles” from her Lemonade album. The visual elements of this performance were breathtaking and beautiful. Adele’s rendition of George Michael’s “Fastlove” was beautiful. There were clips of George Michael playing on the screen behind her. It accompanied the performance so well and captured the emotion of what she was singing. George Michael is sorely missed.

That was my thoughts on the Grammy performances this year, let me know what you agree on or disagree on. I want to hear your thoughts! For more on the Grammys, be sure to grammy.com!

The 1975 Live at the O2

The 1975 is one of my all time favorite bands! Just recently, they performed at the O2 in London on December 16th and the full show was uploaded on their Vevo channel on YouTube. I thought I’d share this with all of you who haven’t seen it, or have never listened to this band.

One of the many things I love doing is sharing music I love with others. The 1975 is one I will quickly mention if people ask what I listen to. I love them because they are different, and they’re not afraid to show that. They always have stayed true to who they are and don’t care what people think of them. Their music just takes you to a different world and makes you feel so alive. I don’t know how to explain it but The 1975 is just incredible. I hope you will appreciate them just as much as I do. Enjoy their show! Let me know what you think of it and if you have comments on The 975 in general, let me know!
