I move towards Matt and lean against the barrier to take a picture with him. He’s got his arm on my back and then someone bumps into the barrier, sending me back with it. I’m in high heels, I can’t help it. Matt is a doll and balances me a little. He also compliments what I’m wearing saying I look nice and how all the ladies are dressed so nicely. He’s an absolute doll, and super cute.

Matt <3 was, I think, the biggest surprise for me. I loved him in Hollywood and was disappointed a lot during the show. I wanted more from him, something that delivered on the promise of his studio versions. Well, last night, he finally delivered. Hard to Handle was a great start to his set; Georgia, which is the song that made me love him, was gorgeous. And I know a lot of people haven’t been feeling You Found Me, but he hit the notes he missed on the show, which was nice. Even without the picture thing earlier, I think I would have totally fallen for this. My friend thought he was the first to really have the charisma to make this show work, although I think he just followed up on Anoop’s amazing charm.

The first group number was enjoyable, but there’s not much to say about it. Beggin’ was awesome, especially the rap, but other than that, it was filler. I almost would have rather had another song for each of the singers. It did go to show, though, that Lil, Anoop, and Matt really are charismatic performers. At one point, Matt’s mic drops to the floor and he keeps singing – even though it was during his solo in the song. You could hear him on the other mics but that he just kept going really shows a professionalism I can appreciate.

Interesting film-like screen scene for Matt Giraud’s intro. Here comes another Piano Man! Woohoo! LOTS more cheering, standing up, and the “EEEEEEE” factor had increased. I agree with the comments of one reviewer (forget which publication)—Matt just about attacked the keys of that piano and made that thing SAAANG! His warm and engaging banter with the audience was very much appreciated. He was sparing in his use of his falsestto, and really hot during “Georgia On My Mind.” (Which should be truly appreciated if/when the tour stops in Georgia.). More people standing up and joining in, and the energy of the arena definitely jumped up a notch. Matt was a great showman during his performance.



Then, time for the group of six to do a medley. Megan started off with “Can’t Take My Eyes Off Of You”, and Lil came in later, bringing some hot swing to the duet, which was cool. Then, DUELING PIANOS!! Matt and Scott came up out of the floor, riding adjoining upright pianos, playing the heck out of “Tell Her About It.” LOVED IT!! (It’s one of my favorite piano songs.) I so wish they didn’t cut this number from the AI finale, but I’m so glad they put it into the tour set. These two mad piano men, jamming their hearts out on the keyboards was so molten hot! They were dressed “Blues Brothers” style, with matching Fedora hats and black suits. (No dark shades, though.)
