The multi-platinum star delighted fans as he arrived onstage to a boxing-style introduction, “Welcome to the Tattoos World Tour, millions of records sold worldwide....Are you ready? You know who it is, the hottest artist in the game, it’s the one and only....Jason Deruuulooo.”

Beginning the night with the UK number one hit, In My Head, Derulo and his team of eight dancers displayed their incredible moves for the first of many dance exhibitions and had the crowd dancing and singing along.

Continuing the night with a string of hits, including Whatcha Say, Stupid Love and Ridin’ Solo, the US star displayed his impressive vocal ability, as well as an above average physique.

Slowing things down, Derulo enjoyed a sing-along with the Belfast crowd to Marry Me, before performing an acoustic version of The Other Side.

Launching into the hits, It Girl and Breathing, Derulo ‘brought it back to the Motherland’ with Fight For You, which samples the Toto hit ‘Africa’.

Derulo gave Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus a run for their money with a raunchy routine with two female dancers to Thicke’s hit Good Girl.

The Tattoos World Tour is Derulo’s first tour since a major accident when he was preparing for the Future History World tour in 2012. Derulo broke a vertebrae in rehearsals and spoke of how he was lucky to be walking, let alone dancing.

Derulo displays his physique.

He brought the crowd to the dressing room as he and his dancers gave an insight into their workout, with multiple six packs on display, the ladies in the audience certainly enjoyed it.

Continuing the night with a cover of Lorde’s Royals and the tracks Vertigo and Side FX, Derulo seemed to read the crowd’s minds as he performed the UK number one hit Don’t Wanna Go Home, before launching into the single version of The Other Side.

The tempo was kicked up a notch as he performed the recent number one single Talk Dirty.

As Derulo left the stage, the crowd called for more with chants of ‘Jason, Jason’ filling the arena.

Duly obliging the fans, the star returned for an encore of Wiggle and the massive hit Trumpets.
