Ingrid Michaelson, always a crowd pleaser, was just one of the draws at the Bonnaroo music festival in Manchester, Tennessee over the weekend. She brings her quirky spirit with her everywhere, even on stage. She really knows how to liven up a crowd and get them as invested in her music as she is.
One of the ways she got the crowd interested was by playing a few bars of Lady Gaga’s hit “Poker Face” in her own fashion which is sure to grab anyone’s attention as it is a break from her traditional style. She then transitioned from “Poker Face” into her own tune “Soldier,” giving fans what they wanted to hear.
Naturally, it was pretty hot there for the 80,000 people who turned out for the festival. And with most sleeping in campgrounds for the weekend, Michaelson noted it wasn’t the cleanest place in the world.
She said, “We smell like a bunch of slightly dirty music lovers. And what is better than that?”
Other artists performing at Bonnaroo included the Kings of Leon, Jay-Z and Stevie Wonder.
