    I agree with James that summer is for hops but you got to have the ballads to so you can chill on the beach. Some people like chilling over partying
    Aka me

    Would've been an even greater riff off if Bruno Mars came out ,like the Usher and Luke riff off…oh yes, and definitely need to increase the mic volume on the Filharmonics. ..but great show✊

    John Legends version of I swear was just as good as the original by John Michael Montgomery and not All 4 One.

    I agree with James. Summer is all about the bops. Fun in the sun and happening music that makes you want to dance regardless where you are. I literally jam out in the car, bust a move in the grocery store, headphones on at work and bopping my head and moving in my chair. The ballads are for fall and winter when everything slows down. But wow. They both did an amazing job. And shout out to the Filharmonic. So talented!!

    "Wow, we got Camila cabello, Jonas brother's , Alicia keys, and NOW Johnson legend and james corden singing my song. I'm gonna go over to the bank and see how much moneys just been put in after that."
