Vinh & I grabbed a quite bite to eat before heading to the SAP Center (formerly HP Pavilion) for the concert. I got in line after getting through security to buy a tour shirt since I like collecting shirts from every concert I go to (at least try to). We got to our seats only to find out a big group of moms & their tweens in our seats. Instead of arguing, we just switched seats, grr... Christina Grimmie opened the show with like four songs. Honestly, I was so annoyed of her 1-2 years ago when I heard her voice, but I really don't mind her live. I did like her original song "With Love."

Remember how I just mentioned we switched seats? Well Vinh was sitting next to the most annoying tween ever & then in front of us, there was this other teen that was dancing like she was a pole dancer. Most of the audience was tweens, teens & their adult supervisions. Needless to say, poor Vinh was not enjoying himself much. Did I mention I have the most devoted hubby that'll come with me to said concert? ♥
Did I also mention we didn't really know the opening acts well or at all? Next up was Emblem3. I thought that had a cool sound though, but they can improve more since they are still just teenagers. I did like how they added reggae influence to their music though so kudos for that!
By the end of Emblem3, Vinh was enjoying himself a little bit now so yay!

Stage is set for Selena!
I loved that Selena had a little video to open her performance & every subsequent outfit change to easy the flow a bit. I will say that this girl definitely works hard! She's signing & dancing her butt off, her staging is pretty awesome & she just seems like a genuine person. She is one classy gal & I hope she stays that way. It's just too bad her fans near us weren't as classy *sigh*
Selena opening her show
Did I mention that she actually does covers, too?! I absolutely loved the fact that she covered Katy Perry's "Roar" :)
You work it girl!
Selena pretended to end the show, but came out to finish up her night with her two newest singles "Come & Get It" & "Slow Down" :)
My favorite shot of the night during "Slow Down"
Finale with streamers & confetti shooting all on the lower levels
Overall, I enjoyed Selena's show, but I don't think I'd ever attend another one. Why? The audience really does create a mood for the show & it really killed our mood sitting next to obnoxious tweens, teens & their crazy parents. I did hear that Selena did come out to meet her fans an hour after the show ended (for free). I'm still a fan of her & her music though :)
