Justin Timberlake, Beyonce Bring the Heat to Brazil’s Rock in Rio
Carter Show world tour — impressed locals with her performance and style, which was complemented by Brazilian newspaper Folha de Sao Paulo. To close out her set, the diva won the hearts of the cariocas (Rio de Janeiro natives) by singing and dancing to a Brazilian funk hit called “Passinho do Volante” by Mc Federado and Leleks. Brazilian photographer and top makeup artist Fernando Torquatto said Beyonce is so integrated, intelligent and alive, adding that the way she ended her presentation shows how interested she is in the audience and their culture. She could have sung ‘Garota de Ipanema’ [‘Girl from Ipanema’], it would have been beautiful, but she touched the soul of the cariocas by singing funk and by honoring Rio de Janeiro, she is honoring Brazil, he said. Another highlight came courtesy of American band 30 Seconds to Mars, who had the crowd in a tizzy as they delivered a slew of heavy-hitting art-rock. Singer Jared Leto wowed by descending some 700 feet in front of the main stage.

Florence and the Machine dominated with hits including Shake It Out, Cosmic Love and Dog Days Are Over. Front woman Florence Welch also demonstrated her love to the audience, draping a Brazilian flag around herself while mouthing I love you. And Muse provided an audio-visual pummeling in its closing set on night two by ripping through guitar solos and powerful piano chords as signer Matthew Bellamy kept an eager crowd engaged. The Hollywood Reporter spoke to one of the masterminds behind the festival, Rubem Medina, whose brother, Roberto Medina, is the creator and producer of Rock in Rio. With every edition, we are trying to make a better festival,” he said. “This is a moment of happiness, and that’s what we want for the city of Rio de Janeiro. Indeed, British singer Jessie J brought smiles aplenty during her headlining set on the third night of the fest. Her fun and interactive performance included such hits as Price Tag, Domino and Laser Lights. Clearly as taken by the response as the crowd was with her moves, she capped her performance by noting, This is an unforgettable experience.” But perhaps the hottest bows of the weekend came from the most experienced of the headliners. Alicia Keys proved why she is one of the best singers in the world and an impressive piano maestro as well. Among the songs she doled out were favorites Girl on Fire, You Dont Know My Name and Empire State of Mind. The soul diva also included a surprise for the audience as she shared the stage with Brazilian singer Maria Gadu for her very first hit, Fallin.
