He hosted, for the 3rd time since his debut, a concert in Lebanon at the Jounieh International Festival 2013, on the 2nd of July. The international pop star gave one of the best performances ever, in front of a whole stadium full of fans. Once again, he gave the Lebanese people a reason to be proud of him, a singer known and appreciated world-wide.
As usual, the stage was overwhelmed with colourful decorations, this time about the universal theme of love. Mika entertained his fans with energetic pop music and incredible dance-moves, and he even welcomed a woman onstage and threw huge balloons in the assembly.
He opened the show with a must, one of the best-known songs from his very first album: Relax, Take It Easy. Everyone was standing, dancing, clapping to the beat or holding signs expressing their love for the singer. Afterwards, he said a very touching word, thanking his fans for their support. He did a bunch of songs from his 3 albums (Life In Cartoon Motion ; The Boy Who Knew Too Much ; The Origin Of Love). He even surprised us with a new song never heard before, but really amazing: Live Your Life. Each song was followed by a standing ovation, however it never lasted long: by the time the assembly had stood up, Mika had already began a new performance. He couldn't get tired, and was singing non-stop during the 2 hours of show.
Finally, leaving the best part for the end, the artist closed the show with a brilliant performance of Over My Shoulder, a ballade that follows the track Happy Ending in his debut album Life In Cartoon Motion.
However, the only thing that disappointed some fans is that a bunch of songs were missing, for instance Stardust, Step With Me, I See You or Popular Song (that requires Ariana Grande) ...
But despite that it was simply extra-ordinary. The show was everything but boring: it was magical, very colourful and energetic.
