Closing the show was Robin Thicke, who was accompanied by three female vocalists. He delivered a sexy, soulful and fun performance of nine songs, including Give It 2 U, Take It Easy on Me, Feel Good, Oh Shooter, Lost Without U, Shaking It For Daddy and Blurred Lines.

Thicke encouraged fans to never give up their dreams even if it comes later for some, referring to his new-found fame that emerged recently with the hit “Blurred Lines”. He played an emotionally-charged rendition of Dreamworld in true R&B fashion. Chart-topping Blurred Lines was the obvious audience favorite of his performance, with fans singing alongside with him. He ended his performance with a display of fireworks in his final performance with Clique.
