Nelly Furtado turns up the heat at Dodge Theatre

Nelly Furtado had a party Tuesday night at the Dodge Theatre, and everyone in the Valley was invited. Her quirky fiesta included a whole lot of neon, awkward dancing and tight silver pants.

The Nell-ster tried to bring a Miami feel to the stage, which was all white and lit up by a giant disco ball. The back of the platform was covered in colorful lights reminiscent of Furtado’s pal Justin Timberlake’s video “Rock Your Body.”

The performers were just as brightly adorned. Nelly first came out on-stage in a red dress complete with a pink vertical stripe, a yellow belt, yellow and red strappy heels, black tights and blingy earrings. Her extension-assisted hair was perched high in a ponytail, enabling her to use it as an accessory she swung around throughout the night.

This was only her first outfit of the show—she changed into three more, including two purple dresses (one long and one short) and a black tight top with shiny silver pants. Her dancers complemented her by wearing fluorescent shirts and dresses, but the outlandish fashion was almost distracting.

Thankfully, Furtado’s singing was on pointe. She sounded great live, almost better than on her recordings. She performed for a little over an hour-and-a-half, singing hits like “Powerless (Say What You Want),” and “All Good Things (Come to an End),” and other tunes from all three of her albums.

Furtado started off the show fast-paced and energetic, whipping out some of her more upbeat and popular songs like “Say It Right” and “Turn Off the Light.” She also did a very pretty and entertaining cover of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy,” with only an acoustic guitar and tambourine to accompany her, and she even infused a little of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” into “Glow.”
