What Makes An Awesome Performance

by Alex | Feb 13, 2014
Hey guys!

I'm a HUGE fan of seeing bands or musicians live. It's soooo different from listening to their music from my iPod or a CD. The feeling is like no other, you feel like you're part of something bigger, something special and the excitement takes over your whole body!

As TG's Entertainment Writer I've been lucky to see some really amazing performers, One Direction, Taylor Swift, R5, Big Time Rush and even Bridgit Mendler and in my spare time, I've seen Pink, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Fall Out Boy (about a million times), Muse and so many more amazing artists and the truth is, the truly amazing performances really stand out and that's because the stars really commit.

Not that I'm a performer by any means but here's a little list of what makes a totally awesome concert performance!

  • Costume changes: I am always impressed at how quick the celeb can change a look!

  • A great stage: Katy Perry and Lady Gaga's stages are always bright, sparkly and have so many awesome details that it really converts an average concert into a masterpiece performance!

  • The talent: Sure there are people that you expect will lip sync but I really love seeing that raw talent on stage, Taylor Swift's performance is amazing because her singing live brings the songs to another level!

  • Crowd interaction: I hate it when the performer doesn't really talk to the crowd or get the audience involved. It kind of feels like you're just playing a CD except you're squished with thousands of people. 1D were amazeballs because they shined spotlights on audience members who had brought awesome posters with them! It makes you feel pretty special and really gets the crowd going!

  • Dancing: You don't have to have back-up dancers or be a world class ballerina as well as a singer but as long as you're not standing in front of your audience like a stunned mullet your crowd should see that you're having a blast performing for them.

What do you think makes an awesome performance? I'd love to hear!
