Darren Criss and Lea Michele joined forces and came to O2 Apollo in Manchester as part of their co-headlining concert tour.
Lea's vocals blew me away, she was amazing and showed real emotion when singing. Lea knew how to engage with the audience and she showed her amazing talents and skills. I really loved how Lea performed a variety of different songs from Broadway to pop and she added her own originality to every song. Her vocal control was insane.
Darren really knew how to bring life and enjoyment to the stage. I loved Darren's distinctive song range. As well as singing he showed great talent on both piano and the guitar. Darren brought the concert to life after Lea's chilled and calm section. Darren also interacted well with the audience.
Lea and Darren both harmonized very beautifully together and showed a real connection whilst performing.
The band were also brilliant as they all played key roles in making the concert run smoothly.
