This Saturday I went to Justin Timberlake's performance in the Amsterdam Arena which was part of his Future Sex/Love Sound European tour. In the morning I heard on the radio that the Amsterdam Arena was not sold out yet, so I went to buy some tickets for Soraya and myself to catch this performance.
Too bad Soraya got held up at work, because otherwise we would have also seen Esmee Denters perform. Esmee had the honor of opening the show. Esmee has been getting a lot of media attention lately, especially after she got signed as the first artist on Justin Timberlake's record label. For those who do not know her: Esmee became famous through YouTube, where she posted movies of herself singing her own version of songs by famous artists behind her webcam. Over the past year Esmee's movies have had more then 26 million views on YouTube. She really has an amazing voice and I think it's really funny, but for the best, that she got rejected for the dutch version of Idols in the first round. Be sure to check this video clip by Esmee where she does a cover of Alicia Keys "How come you don't call me anymore?".
Justin is a real performer. This guy can really sing and dance at the same time. With a 3 hour show it was amazing to see how he moved the entire Amsterdam Arena, which held around 50.000 people at that time. It appeared Timbaland also flew to Amsterdam to do a couple of songs together with Justin and a small but excellent performance of his own. I have to say that this concert was really great! I'm not a fan, but I might have to reconsider ;-)
