We were promised a meet and greet with Fergie, so I left my laptop with the rest of the blogging team and went backstage. While there waiting, I saw a friend of mine who works with them who gave me all access passes. In the excitement I forgot my laptop with the bloggers and couldn’t blog while BEP were on stage…sorry!
Of course, they were amazing. I’m not biased. It’s the truth. Definitely stole the show from everyone else who had been on the stage that day. I even liked their little olay olay olay olay (though Fergie’s added ‘uh-oh, uh-oh’ was irritating as hell). will.i.am performed a freestyle of “we need peace in the middle east” which was rather amazing. As was his repeated stories of how much he loved Israel. To sum it up, I’ll type up lyrics to his rendition of Hotel California:
My name is Will
I’ve been thinking about moving to Israel
I’m Christian – but I’d convert to a Jew
Just so I could marry somebody as pretty as you
I really love, LOVE Israel
Such a lovely place, such a lovely place
I’m moving outta America and moving to Israel
Can’t believe my eyes, I’m in paradise
After the show, he was talking to some kids who moved there from Canada and told them that Israel and Brazil are his favorite places in the world – quite a feat if you consider the fact that he has travelled worldwide! But I can’t blame him..
