I hope I survive this post. It is evident that G.O effortlessly pulls the proverbial emotional rug out from under me with the utterance of a single note, every time. Without fail. I think I have established that fact well before I began this countdown series. But when you factor in his smooth and quietly sensual style of any era, and particularly during the Sexy Beat era, he becomes more disarming. Lethal. It is Fan-Camming day – omg, I have a great idea. I will make every Friday a Fan-Camming day. Fan-Camming Friday. It has a nice ring to it. Ok, where was I? For Day 296, I noticed I had one notation in my countdown log and that was “find a G.O-focused cam performance of Cry.” I found one and it is from the 4 June 2013 Sexy Beat showcase. Please, proceed with caution.^^
Whoever made the decision to dress G.O in black leather and what I can only describe as sinfully placed organza should have either been arrested or hopefully given a robust pay raise. The sheer arms and midriff of this ensemble were an electrifying and intoxicating tease of grand proportions. Coupled with Cry, this showcase moment goes on my list as being one of G.O’s more sexy offerings captured on film – for even holding back on the choreography did not minimize his quiet and unique brand of subtle yet potent sensuality.
I am kind of grateful G.O showed some mercy by refraining from the sultry hip and shoulder gyrating of Cry’s exceptionally provocative choreography. I mean, his mere presence and powerful vocals were more than enough to help set that showcase stage on fire.
As I have mentioned in the past, I teeter between wishing I had come on board just a few months earlier than I did to have experienced the release and subsequent promotions of Sexy Beat, but then also being grateful I was spared. The pictures and videos are more than enough.
Indeed, they are every bit as powerful to the senses as if the moment was happening all over again real time. G.O leaves his mark, brands you even, with emotions and sensations that endlessly linger.
