I think I remember more about trying to get these tickets than the actual show LOL  Me and 2 of my brother’s friends Moms went to “camp out” for tickets at the mall. (This was before was a thing)  They gave out numbers and then called a number and that was the first person to buy tickets and then everything went in number order from there (so getting there the earliest didn’t really mean anything)  Except that the shows sold out in like 2 seconds.  They added a couple more shows – but we ultimately went home empty handed.  MEANWHILE – my Dad was at home trying on the phone and was instructed to get us 8 tickets if he could get through.  He did – but the phone was having a glitch and was not giving out confirmation numbers.  So I got home and he was like “I GOT THEM!” (no cell phones lol) and I had heard other people in line talking about no confirmation number meaning you wouldn’t get them so I was like “did you get a confirmation number?” and he was like “No…”  But then one night a little bit later Ticketmaster called and said the order was pending but since we didn’t get a confirmation number – did we want the tickets still?  At that point we bought tickets for DC instead but we ended up getting the MSG tickets too.  This was I believe the night before they recorded it for HBO so they were doing a run through of it with the cameras and all that.  This was also my first time on a Subway and I didn’t realize it just took off before you got a seat so I went flying and ended up being caught by some old guy lol (I am now a Subway pro and can even ride it standing)


Where Are They Now:

Pink is now a HUGE star. I did not like her at all back in 2000 though.

Ron has apparently still been doing music and had shows around Florida last year according to his reverbnation page!

Innosense is no longer together… and yeah.


iHeartRadio #Ultimate Pool Party


There ain’t no party quite like an iHeart Radio party! I know this, because last year I went to the music festival village at the lot in Las Vegas.  This year I unfortunately won’t be making it to any of the shows in person – but fortunately the CW Network has brought the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party to me and aired it last night!  The pool party was in Miami, FL and took over the Fontainbleu Resort’s famous pool.

The great thing about iHeartRadio is that their shows and parties always seem to involve artists from all different genres of music – yet somehow it works!  The pool party kicked off with a set from Lil Jon – where he started with the popular song “Get Low” and then went in to “Turn Down For What”, I have to say – this song has been EVERYWHERE lately and I’m kind of sick of it! Everyone else seems to love it though and Lil John is sure putting on a show!

The party is hosted by Nick Cannon – how many jobs does this guy have? Wow! I remember once we had the chance to meet Nick and didn’t take it several years ago.  Who knew then what he would have become now?

Iggy Azalea was up next with her single “Fancy”, if you ask me if I like her I’ll probably say no – but I’ll let you in on a little secret – more often than not I have her song stuck in my head… Such an earworm! So catchy. who dat who dat i-g-g-y…

Speaking of super catchy songs that are always stuck in my head… next up performing was Ariana Grande with “Problem”, when “Fancy” isn’t stuck in my head, “Problem” usually is!  I got the chance to see Ariana live a couple of years ago – but would love to catch her again! She is such a great singer and performer and just always seems to be having so much fun!  I’m kind of jealous that the people at this pool party got to see the performance with Iggy too!

Next up is Neon Trees’ Tyler &  Tiesto! I’ve actually somehow never managed to hear this song “Red Lights” before. Not sure how that happened?  This is catchy though and I like it! I’ve seen Neon Trees before but would love to see them again – if only to see what kind of fun outfit Tyler is wearing! Tonight he has on blue slacks and a printed top with all sorts of fun colors.

Ariana is back now to perform “The Way”,this song reminds me so much of Mariah Carey!

Neon Trees was up next – Tyler changed so that made me happy – got to see another outfit! They did their popular single – Animal.

Nick Cannon hits the stage to perform his new single that is with Pitbull.  Unfortunately it doesn’t look like Pitbull is there though. If there’s anyone I’d love to see live, it’s Pitbull. (I’ve seen Nick on the All That tour several years ago!)  Nick’s outfit is making me think of old school LL Cool J.

Next up is Magic! who has a super catchy song “Rude” that is currently on the radio that I am absolutely loving. It’s a bit of reggae and a bit of rock and it’s just awesome – and another catchy ear worm! This is definitely a band that has recently been added to my “must see” list, they just seem like their music would be so fun and even better live!

(Side note this Jane the Virgin show looks like it might be pretty good!)

And finishing out the night – my girl JLo! She performed “First Love” in what amounted to her swimsuit.She also performed “On the Floor”, “Booty” and “Jenny from the Block”

Overall the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party did not disappoint – If I couldn’t be there, watching it on TV was the next best thing!  I think that JLo and Ariana were my favorite performances of the night!

Did you watch too? What were your thoughts on the show?
