The long awaited debut of Will.i.am, Jennifer Lopez and Mick Jagger’s performance of “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)”, took place at the 2011 American Music Awards (November 20th) at the Nokia theater in Los Angeles.
Jennifer Lopez performed for the second time of the night with a glow in the dark performance beginning with the chorus line: “You can go hard or you can go home.” Will.i.am delivered a complete glow-in-the-dark performance that included floating dancers, a headless will and even a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it disappearing act.
Lopez played up her part as featured guest, and even though Jagger was missing from the action, he did appear via video for his portion of the dance tune. (I am sure this was a disappointment to the crowd – an appearance by Mick Jagger would have definitely been a show stopper). To conclude the number, glowing confetti filled the air.
“T.H.E (The Hardest Ever)” is the lead single from will’s forthcoming solo album, #willpower, which is expected to drop next year. “T.H.E. (The Hardest Ever)” was released on iTunes immediately after the AMA performance. Rich Lee directed the video for the song, which was shot in Los Angeles and London; it is expected to premiere later this month.
What did you think of the performance?
