LIVE REVIEW: JASON DERULO @ MANCHESTER ARENA, 4TH FEBRUARY 2016

Well, this is a little different to what you're all used to reading isn't it?!

Me being at Jason Derulo was not intentional based on my personal interests - I was simply treating my best friend for her birthday - turns out that I enjoyed it more than I originally thought I would!

I wasn't expecting to walk into Manchester Arena and see it jam packed, full of a range of different individuals from children to women in their mid-40s, from full grown men to girls who looked more dressed for a night in a club rather than a gig.

We trekked down to the floor of the arena during ASTON MERRYGOLD's set to find our seat. The former JLS member had plenty of people dancing along with his pop songs (none of which I was familiar with, but the crowd seemed to like it).

That set really wasn't for me and I was expecting JASON DERULO to be the same cheesy pop madness but my opinion was about to be challenged. The lights went out and the crowd were fronted by a large screen counting down the seconds till the start of the show. As soon as the clock hit 10, you could hear the masses of fans (or Derulers as one item of merchandise described them), counting down with excitement.

As soon as the dancers emerged on stage the crowd erupted, I stayed content, not too excited and not too bored. It was only when Jason himself came out and began performing that my mind was blown. It was completed different gig (obviously), it was a complete package performance. I normally think that whole choreographed dancers etc is completely cheesy but it worked so well and boy, Jason has got some moves and a killer voice! 

Before long I was surprisingly singing away and dancing with my best friend to his best hits and was actually really enjoying myself - I'm pretty sure I needed a slap in the face! Song after song was incredible from the incredible back up vocals to Jason appearing out of no where behind us during my favourite track 'The Other Side'. 

I literally cannot fault the entire night from the stage presence, the vocals, the dancers and the backing singers all the way to the setlist. Hit after hit I found myself singing my heart out to songs I was adamant that I didn't know. 

I might be a pop-punk and a metal head but I would 100% go and see Jason Derulo again. I don't care if this post has cramped my style! I'll be back with Slipknot for my next post.
