Demi Lovato and Enrique Iglesias Ireland

demi lovato irish meet and greet
This post is long overdue but, if you follow me on any of my social media, then you will already know that I met Demi freaking Lovato! I'm still not quite over it yet. Maybe someday, but not today. If anything, it feels like an odd dream. The best dream ever mind you, but odd. Thankfully, I'm not the only one having this problem. Everyone else who met her is having a hard time putting it into reality too. I've always had one dream (celeb wise) and that was to see her perform live, but I got to meet her too so it's really crazy. She's one of my favourite people ever and it's just so.....ah. I'm so thankful to have had the chance to meet her and she was so sweet and absolutely tiny and if she actually uses her skincare line, then I will be needing it..

If you didn't know, Demi was supporting Enrique Iglesias last week as part of his 'Sex and Love' tour. I bought tickets to see Demi, I assumed they would have equal stage time but I was wrong. She say's she's going to come back but I doubt it.
Her vocals live, knocked Enrique the whole way from Dublin to Galway. It was kind of pathetic really. He may have been the main pull and a total babe (ps. Irish Enrique fans are aggressive, lovatics were the sweetest) but Demi was fantastic. My friends even commented that she sounded better live, than she did on her actual album. Slay.
Enrique did put on a really good show, he's an entertainer, easy on the eye but not so easy on the ears. In reality, I think he was experiencing difficulties, as when he came on stage he kept pulling his ear piece out and looking off to the side of the stage. He was also drowned out by the music, it was hard to make out the words he was singing, he carried on though and picked up momentum towards the middle of the show. I'm not a huge Enrique fan, but for that hour and a half, I was pulled into the world of Enrique and even held onto his hand for a split couple of seconds. I was front row and it was a great experience, especially when he ran into the crowd multiple times and stood right over us and sang.
The security guard in the 3arena looked so confused, cause we went cray for Demi but with Enrique we were so 'yup yup tuuune, abs, face, remove hat, ohhh stand by me, i think i know this song, kay you're standing in front of me now'. But overall it was a good night and he was really sweet to the audience, saying how he really appreciated us all coming out to see him, that he understood times were hard and it was cute because not many artists recognise that. He was so laid back and when he jumped onto the balcony and took selfies with all those people, I just couldn't help but think how cray cray he was.
I met some really lovely people when I was in the crowd too. This was the first time I was in a crowd where I didn't feel like I was going to be sliced. Miley Cyrus' concert back in May nearly put me off standing in the 3arena for good but thankfully it was all good and I really wish it was last week again because I enjoyed it all so much. If you ever get a chance to see either of them live, do.
