Kicking off the first day of Dubai Jazz Fest is a performance by no other than Sir Tom Jones. The legendary singer’s irresistible show traversed musical eras and genres, and cut across class, age and gender barriers like no other. But, it’s not really a surprise, his songs are classic. Sir Tom Jones demonstrated the power of each song and his voice. He sang Mama Told Me Not to Come, Delilah, Sex Bomb, and Green, Green Grass of Home.

Sir Tom was supported by one of New York’s most entertaining live acts The Rad Trads, featuring powerful horns, driving rhythm section, and four captivating lead vocalists.

MARIAH CAREY: Throwback Thursday Feels

Mariah Carey sure may have some vocal problems during her Dubai stint. But so what ? She is the iconic Mariah Carey and sure her fans enjoyed her set from start to finish no matter what.

The award-winning singer performed her classics including Hero, We Belong Together and Always be My Baby and as well as her new song I Don’t. Fans waved their hands in the air while singing along with the 46-year-old singer-songwriter.

Aside from giving her fans some nostalgia with her 90s hits, she also didn’t fail to awe everyone with her gowns, the Michael Cinco ones in particular. She reminded us of her “Glitter” movie days once again which hit the theater back in 2001.

Opening for Mariah Carey was multi-talented artist and one-man band Raul Midon.

The King of Latin, Iglesias performed the best of his hits to his energetic and highly engaged fans. Some of his crowd favorite numbers were Heartbeat, Be With You, I like How It Feels, Bailando, Esto No Me Gusto and Tonight (I’m Loving’ You).

He also made a lot of his followers’ night by dancing and singing with them onstage and accepting their gifts including an Enrique Iglesias trophy, bouquet of flowers and a UAE flag. The superstar, who wore his signature white tee and baseball cap closed the show with a sexy rendition of “Hero.”

Nathan Sykes was the opening act for Iglesias.
