After four nights and four shows, I feel like I am starting to suffer show overload – and there is still one more night to go. That’s not a reflection on the quality of the performances – they are all superb, and tonight’s show was no exception. It’s a bit like having your favourite food every night of the week – after a few days you feel like you need a break for one night otherwise you start taking the best for granted.
There were more dance presentations in tonight’s show than singers or bands. The dances included a classical Cambodian peacock dance, a vibrant Bollywood dance routine, a traditional drum dance from Vietnam and a very impressive modern adaptation of South Pacific traditional dances by a talented group of 16 dancers and musicians from Fiji.
As all the performers gathered on the stage at the end, they received a standing ovation, and now we hold our breath for the judges to determine the prize-winners which will be announced at a gala closing concert tonight.
