At the 2018 MTV EMAs, Jason Derulo sang an operatic opening of Andrea Bocelli’s “Time to Say Goodbye” that transitioned into his hit single with David Guetta, “Goodbye” that includes Nicki Minaj. The show remained eye-catching from the beginning, with its delicate opening exploding into Guetta’s digital pop rhythm amid a flurry of masked dancers and Derulo himseld clad in traditional apparel, dancing down a staircase constructed for a mansion. JD then makes his method right down to heart stage, the place the masked dancers encompass him in a routine that mimics synchronized swimming amidst Minaj’s catchy refrain. It appears the producers had a traditional imaginative and prescient in thoughts, and summoned some nostalgia for the present. Not to say, the efficiency proved David Guetta’s versatility in in the present day’s music world — whether or not taking part in extra minimal as his new Jack Back alias or blowing away the pop sphere, the French artist is a real chameleon of a musician and performer.
