Things I learned at the Justin Timberlake concert

Last night, Justin Timberlake put on a concert in Ottawa, Ontario. He mentioned that the last time he was in Ottawa was in the year 2000 and that’s “fucking unacceptable” in his words. I agree. I went to the show last night and it was unbelievable! I’m a huge Justin Timberlake fan since the *Nynsc days *sigh*. The 33 year old defiantly knows how to put on a show. 

Here are some things that I learned while attending the Justin Timberlake concert:

1. Any seat at the Canadian Tire Centre is a good seat. We were sitting way, way, way up in the 300’s and I could see JT very well from where I was sitting! Ha! Take that people who paid more to sit in the 200’s!

2. Toot toot toot toot! And the horns say! I wish I took band in high school. The Tennessee Kids are incredible! I love their sound. They can easily make any “band kid” look cool. 

3. I wish I would have stuck with my hip hop dancing and vocal lessons as a kid. JT is so talented. He is defiantly a triple threat. I’m jealous. 

4. He sounds just like the CD. Here is my favourite song.

5. He has style and I want to copy it. 

Did you go last night? What did you think?

Cory Marquardt “Smartphone”

Have you heard this song from Cory Marquardt? He’s a new Canadian (North Bay, Ontario) country music artist. My cousin just told me about him and this video. My cousin and her husband are also in the music video!
