Stars In Sapphire Perform Pop Hits On Saturday Morning

Stars In Sapphire performed at THON early Saturday morning, largely bringing old and new pop classics to the Bryce Jordan Center. The performance began at around 8 a.m. and lasted for about an hour.

The show started with a rendition of Stevie Nicks’ 1981 hit “Edge of Seventeen.” Decked out in pink, lead singer Bernadette proceeded to perform two songs by Dua Lipa: “Dance The Night” and “Levitate.”

The band continued by performing “Poker Face” by Lady Gaga. It then performed “Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!” by ABBA but not before teasing some potential Taylor Swift covers to come later on in the show. It then performed “Cruel Summer,” which delighted the crowd as it sang along.

Stars In Sapphire is comprised of four former Penn State music students. Bernadette took the time to express the group’s appreciation to perform at THON before continuing the show.

“We’re really, really grateful to be here. This is a great cause,” she said.

The group played an original song, followed by “I Can See You” by Taylor Swift.

However, another crowd-pleaser was next. Cascada’s 2006 hit, “Everytime We Touch” was performed, which the band said it previously played at THON’s Battle of the Bands.

Two more songs followed to close out the show, including an original and “Bad Romance” by Lady Gaga.
