Mika was a very fun show with a lot happening.  Before the day of the concert, I had honestly never even heard of Mika, but I have a feeling now I’ll be hearing about him so much more.  He’s definitely a rising star and this of course means there are certainly those out to get him.

One of the funniest parts of this concert wasn’t even on stage!  It was spotting “respected” music industry commentator Bob Lefsetz hopping around the floor, up and down the VIP stairs, and pre-maturely out the door with a popped collar polo shirt in tow.  He bashed Mika over Twitter during the show and the continued to afterward with his mailing list (which I subscribe to.)

After his initial email blast, the debate raged on for about a week.  Did Mika lip sync?  Was the whole show on hard drive?  Well, as I was in attendance I can tell you that he wasn’t lip syncing, but there was definitely audio playing off of a hard drive.

Honestly, this is irrelevant to me, because it wasn’t ALL on hard drive as Mr. Lefsetz would lead you to believe and I think it’s pretty obvious that Mika has talent.  Regardless, the show was incredibly fun and I think the mass of jumping and screaming fans is a testament to that.
