SGIM Concert Review

Post Concert Review/Memoirshi there...the concert was good. sarah was able to show her versality...both as a singer and as a dancer. She was able to give justice to all the songs. Her audience was from all age range. There were lots of grannies there with the rest of the family...teenagers...and of course, the kids. It was such a wholesome crowd. Her duet with Mark Bautista was just perfect. I have been reaffirmed how good they look together on stage...and how their voices blend impeccably. Echo...was so-so...John Prats: was like...huh? Gary V...ive seen better numbers from SG and Mr. Pure Energy. Though the song they sang was full of energy and was heavy in dancing, it was not defintely a crowd favorite. Their ASAP numbers are way way better. Ai-ai's segment was the coolest of all. They rocked the house with their upbeat version of old Filipino songs. It was a riot. Everybody was hysterical.The part when Sarah sang the songs of Mr. Louie Ocampo was good. She gave justice to the songs sung mostly by her idol, Regine. In that portion, she sang Tell Me, You are My Song, Say that You Love Me, I Can...(kulang ata ang naaalal ko) Then Sarah gave a very heartwarming rendition of The Prayer. It was very emotional. I must say that her vocal cords were prepared for the song. However, not all parts were enjoyable because not all songs have great impact. I dont event know some of the songs. There were boring parts. It was more of a dance show. But there was no question to sarah's vocal powers. She is really really good. And I did not like the ending...walang impact. Yung tipong hindi mo paguusapan pagkatapos. I actually heard quite a number of people saying that last year's concert was better. I must agree to that. Siguro dapat medyo bawasan ng sayaw...mas magfocus sa pagkanta...At kantahin yung mga songs na may recall sa tao. Pero, all in all, the concert was good. Ang nakakkilig at nakaktuwa eh ung pagpapakita ng ilang scenes from her upcoming teleserye. Ibang-iba na si sarah dito. Talgang loveteam sila ni echo...Mas mature na yung role niya at siyempre ang mga bago niyang commercials: hapee and extreme magic sing.

So far, ito lang ang naalala ko. Huwag po sana magdamdam kung may nasabi man akong hindi ninyo nagustuhan. Im an avid fan of sarah. Im just being objective. If I were to rate the concert, I'll give it a 7.5. And if i will rate sarah...I'll give her a 9.5!

On second thought, baka ako lang ang di masyado nag-enjoy. Maybe i was expecting more singing...Eh ang title nga eh IN Motion...so, malamang mas maraming upbeat songs at dancing...Haaayyyy....Malamang ako ang may maling expectations. Nevertheless, I love Sarah. Grabe! puno ang araneta at may aircon na....

    nag-enjoy namn talaga ko.medyo iba nga lang talga ang expectations ko...siguro nga im more a fan of sarah the singer and not so much of sarah the singer-dancer.

    And may i add...one thing very noticeable...ang ganda ganda ni sarah at ang ganda ganda ng legs niya. Opening number pa lang eh kitang kita mo na ang ganda ng legs niya at naka-costume pa siya ng pang-silver surfer. asteeeeg. At nung nag-shorts siya...wow...to die for...pero siya na nga rin ang nagsabi...naka-leggings siya. heheheh

    Another thing that is highly evident eh ung pagiging mabait na bata ni sarah. Napaka-humble pa rin niya. Sabi nga ng nanay ko...mabait na bata si sarah.

    Si Sam Milby din pala eh crown favorite.

    That's very quick, lynus....THANKS A LOT! I guess usually kasi pag sinabing concert eh more of singing nga..but I think also like what eiram wrote...with the title being "...In motion.." eh talagang more of motion.... so don't worry....

    anyhow, iisa lang naman ang ating objective...TO SUPPORT OUR DEAREST SARAH BEBE ALL THE WAY, di ba?

    Atleast enjoy parin talaga lynus... thanks sa karagdagang kwento.... sana dalhin lahat ng costume nya sa US concert nya... tuloy d me makapaghintay sa US tour nya 6 more weeks till i'll watch her sa San Jose kahit malaki yung gastos its really worth it sa mga kwento nyo palang worth it na yung pag bakasyon sa Cali4nia....... hay cant wait talaga and nakaka ingggit talaga kayo....

    another thing also is dat yung audience ni Sarah is lahat ng guest so if you think about it yung repertoire nya ay parang lahat ng age narin..... mayroon para sa ibat ibang age... and its understandable na d lahat magugustuhan yung performance... pero like i said we just have to open our mind ..... Thanks again...

    Question ::: marami bang mga kapamilya na nag watch... sana naman marami..... and where they selling merchandise sa concert... sana nga rin dalhil sa US lahat ng merchandise nya....

    Wow! aga mo lynus23!....

    First of, let me say that the concert was a HUGE SUCCESS!! Jampacked ang araneta and tama si lynus, from kids to grannies talaga nanuod! and there were some nuns i saw in the crowd!.. The popsters were in full force, saw familiar faces! and mukhang di sila umupo the whole concert, hehehe... the crowd was more energetic this time dahil nga may aircon, hehe..

    as for our side of the concert, unang una, if FHM can give an award as 'THE SEXIEST WHOLESOME ACTRESS/SINGER' It would have to be Sarah!, her outifts were all great, she was sooo sexy!!! she can be a bond girl dahil sa ka sexyhan! Kudos to Rajo and team for making that happen!

    What I can remember (before maging ngarag na kami)...ito muna una, yung mga interaction niya sa guests

    The best part was with Ai-ai!, if the sylvia la torre/pilita medley sarah did in her TOS tour was super funny and maganda, eto mas matindi pa!!! it brought the house down!, super sigawan mga tao!

    Next great performance was with Sam Milby, their bon jovi duet of Ill be there 4 you was greatly applauded and ang ganda ng blending nila....

    With john pratts naman, It was sarah who shown here, she did another michael jackson medley, and this time naka shorty shorts siya (with leggings na parang transaparent na) ang ganda ng porma, parang thoroughbred, hehehe... yung kinanta niya jam, and smooth criminal ata, super duper ang galing niya sumayaw dito!!! pang international, given additional back up dancers...

    with gary, they sang sexy back, and meron pang isa, mala ASAP siya so people didnt react that much, it would have been better if they did a Gary V original like hataw na

    Kay Mark naman, eto mukang ayaw ng bitawan ang kaay ni sarah even after their duet, hehehe...

    Louie Ocampo - great songs and sarah did great here too! and ang ganda ng pagkanta niya ng i'll be alright!

    With echo naman, eto I felt was forgettable because of echo, they sang pangarap na bituin... ang maganda lang is, they were showing clips of their new teleserye, and dito mukhang wala ng masyadong inhibitions si sarah unlike BWN, may mga scene na sweet sila ni echo like sarah riding in the back of echo (yung kabayo-kabayo), and basta mukhang super hit ito!


    some other notables were her new endorsements Hapee toothpaste , ang cute ng commercial watch for it, and yung extreme magic sing! ganda din ng kanta niya!!!

    I guess medyo tama si lynus, there were some parts that did not catch much of my attention, dahil siguro nga they had to play around with songs that will cater to a whole different set of generations, from kids to grandmas..
    a lot of current songs mixed with classics/standards..

    pero kami super enjoy....

    what else...

    yun, yung the prayer (ito na yung naka red and only gown she had) na kinanta niya , sent shivers, ang ganda ng pagkakakanta niya...

    the opening, eto talaga, daig pa niya si beyonce, as in, no kidding because of her sexiness, super! and yung mga dance step niya talagang super snappy!

    ...overall we enjoyed it, half of the time I was sort of transfixed (yung nakatitig lang kay SG, while mouth partially open in awe, hehe).. sulit ang bayad it was a 3 hour show started almost 9pm and ended 12 midnight!...

    hi sa mga popsters! galeng nilang lahat!!!!

    and yung in motion magazine pala, super duper as in super duper!.... dunno if the popsters wll allow the mag scans here, dahil I assume it might be sold during her SGIM tour in the states... pero I personally think you should get it, ang gaganda ng mga kuha ni sarah dito,... as in, its indescribable! hehe

    what else can I remember, basta, her dance moves keep coming back!, kung napanuod niyo yung last weeks SGIM, wala pa pala sa kalahati yun ng pinakita ni sarah... hehehe si mark nga di makapaniwala, ang sabi, ang galing galing mo, with matching sayaw ng legs pa si mark!

    sam milby gave the perfect description of sarah "A perfect role Model".. and Gary V had a lot of good words for her, and talagang close sila, niyakap ni sarah si gary, and I think she was on the brink of tears nun...

    less birits this time around, even the BWN song and FNE were not "birited" like in some of her finales....and gulat kami dahil after that last set of songs, biglang bumalik siya, singing gwen stefanis "favorite girl"??, and fergalicious, and 2 other songs na upbeat and party athmosphere talaga dahil nakatapos na siya eh....and sen angara gave her flowers and the whole viva team, etc... and the popsters each were giving her flowers... ayun tumayo na kami nun dahil kung hihintayin namin maubos yung nagbibigay ng flowers sa kanya, baka umabot na ng 1 am, hehehe [img]https://sarahgeronimo.com/uploads/ipb/style_emoticons/legacy/smile.gif got some pics, pero medyo strict sa side namin, kaya tago din, and no time to take pics, this time around, we really admired her moves! pag pumikit ka baka ma miss mo eh! heheh[/img]

    Hello to all! I can't sleep! Still reeling from all the excitement! Was able to make beso to Sarah and say "IDOL GALING"... that totally made my year, thank you very much biggrin.gif alt=':D' ] 11.jpg

    Well, I might as well write a review. I have a feeling Joe is currently typing a recap as well. ;P I'm sorry if there will be some inaccuracies in my post...everything's still a blur at this point...but here goes...

    Pre-show


    Shirts were being sold for P300 and the mysterious "second merchandise" is this glorious magazine/poster book with amazing pictures of Sarah being sold for P200. [img]https://sarahgeronimo.com/uploads/ipb/style_emoticons/legacy/smile.gif Inside the Coliseum, they showed Sarah's commercials on the screens. Two were new: Extreme Magic Sing and Happee toothpaste. The one of Happee toothpaste was like a spoof of Ice Age or Happy Feet with those little animated penguin characters. Cute. Popsters were all decked out in SGIM shirts, button pins and these cool battery-operated blinking thingies that they made everyone wear. Pretty cool[/img][img]https://sarahgeronimo.com/uploads/ipb/style_emoticons/legacy/smile.gif The place was full, not[/img]packed, but full. A nice, full crowd of kids, mommies, grannies, students, yuppies, etc.

    The show
    Ok so the musicians started playing and we started screaming. Correct me if I'm wrong - I think some guy started rapping in the opening number. Then for mystery effect, smoke machine...... And then Sarah slowly emerged from the ground of an elevated platform. THIS PART WAS UBER EXCITING! She emerged with her back facing the audience, striking a really sexy Charlie's Angels-type pose in a skintight silver catsuit-ish costume! OMG somebody upload a vid of that part please cos it was the best!!!!

    The intro was the one of the best parts of the concert for me, because it was obviously the most rehearsed and it embodied the IN MOTION theme so much more so than the other parts. Her dancing was so great, I still can't believe it. Ang galing nya, promise, ibang level sya sumayaw kanina! Basta ang sexy/galing nya! Kakaproud!!!

    (um ano na nga ulit ang nangyari after this...?) To be continued...

    Overall, I guess, the concert was a success, as what lynus and the other posters that watched the concert, it was sortof an adjustment to all of us seeing sarah dance more and birit less.. lagi kasing may forte ang mga singers eh, kaya yung di nila forte they do it in one or 2 prod numbers.. kay sarah naman, she's showing her versatility, I can dance as well as I can sing!. hehehe...oops one thing I missed, I missed her tagalog songs/interpretations , parang 2 songs lang na tagalog kinanta niya, hehehe....


    eto pa pala, because of her sexy outfits, they had to compensate a bit, yung hairstyle ni sarah, was simple, ponytail, and with bangs, hehehe... kaya after each number, she "transforms" back to the "bungi girl" we all know and love" hehe... and at one point, sinabi niya pa, ay eto naka shorts ako, pero di nakayanan kaya naka leggings padin, hirit pa siya na magagalit si tita divine, hehe, joke daw


    and is it just us that felt that the sound system was too loud that it kinda distorts the voice of the singers na, specially sarah, nung part lang ng finale (red gown) that the sound was toned a little bit, or dahil wala masyadong synthesizers pag birit na kanta ginagawa niya?.. aya siguro medyo may part na di maintindihan kanta sa lakas?

    ...Continuation

    So solo dance dance si Sarah during the intro while singing Deja Vu, Sa Iyo, and other songs. Ang galing eh. Sorry to the poster who was hoping she would use a body mic. Cos she just used her regular mic. Na nahulog at one point kasi tinamaan yata ng elbow ni John Prats. Ayun lumipad ang famous mic na kinagagalit ng mga pexers, hehehe. Pinulot naman ni Sarah.

    Anyway, so after that solo intro song/dance number, she left the stage. Then some guy with a hat emerged...JERICHO. Sigawan ang crowd. I guess type ng tao si Echo. tongue.gif Heart Evangelista was there in the audience. Jericho sang Manila. Kaya nga at first I thought it was Gary V. cos he sang that in the Hotsilog album. Jericho went off the stage to walk around and sing to the audience. Tilian ang girls! His second song was an unfamiliar song he wrote himself. --- I guess this was what Lynus was talking about when she mentioned unfamiliar songs.

    Echo's third song, Sarah came out again. In her second costume na, a gold spaghetti strapped dress na slinky and knee-length. Sexy nya dito again! Duet sila ng...Pangarap na Bituin. Yes!!! OMG on the screens, they showed CLIPS OF P.N.B., the scenes shot in Bora! Guys SUPER TO THE MAX KAKAKILIG! Sigawan kami! Sigawan ang Popsters! Pero the general audience, well, di siguro nila magets.

    The scenes I remember from the clips they showed:
    1. Little Sarah played by child actress from Goin Bulilit. Little girl was singing as daddy (Joel Torre) played the guitar on some beach bar.
    2. Grown up Sarah still doing the same thing, singing with dad, her hair tied w/ a bandanna.
    3. Sarah and Echo arguing on the beach. But it was a cute fight cos they ended up laughing.
    4. (Ok brace yourself) Sarah on piggyback on Echo's back and they were sweet. OMG.
    5. Sarah and Echo on a banca talking. Sarah wearing a Tshirt and bermuda shorts. The look was so perfect. haay.


    Onga pala her hairstyle during the whole concert was a simple ponytail. I think she cut her hair. Ang short ng ponytail eh.

    Ok so bye, Echo... hello Mark Bautista.
