Shania Twain sure knows how to throw a party and last night she put on a great one at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Opening up the night was Swiss singer, songwriter, and performer, Bastian Baker. He got the crowd moving and grooving and really had a great stage presence. From the moment he took the stage, everybody seemed to be drawn in, enjoying the music and it continued throughout his entire set. He did a great job getting the crowd pumped up for Shania Twain.

After Bastian Baker's set, Shania Twain entered through the back of the arena and made her way through the nearly sold-out crowd. As she made way to the main stage she screamed, "Are you ready St. Paul?" And from that moment on, after hearing the crowd's positive response, it was obvious that it was about to be one heck of a night.

Twain started off the night with, "Life's About To Get Good" which is a track off her new album, Now. Following was "Come on Over" and "Up!" which got the crowd engaged from the start with their hands in the air, swaying and jumping along to the music.

After a few more tracks, and dropping down below the stage, Twain emerged back on stage in a new outfit, which was a reoccurrence throughout the entire show. A few costume highlights were her flowy sparkly black dress, some fierce red boots, a black cowgirl hat, and a blue body suit. It was entertaining to watch the fun costume changes take place. I think I counted a total of eight costume changes, and I might have missed a few, but overall she looked absolutely amazing throughout the entire show. Also, during each costume change, Twain didn't leave the crowd hanging as she got ready. There were drum solos, music videos to watch, and even a kiss cam. To say the show was entertaining would be an understatement.

A highlight of the night came when Twain played, "Whose Bed Have Your Boots Been Under?" The crowd went wild for the song and the dancers on stage really shined during this performance, as they did for the majority of the show. It was hard to keep your eyes off of them.

"You guys are awesome. You're amazing. I'm gonna do a song that's been a big inspiration for me. It's a new song and I wrote it to remind myself that there's always a light at the end of the tunnel. So, I want to share it with you and I hope it inspires you as well," said Twain before performing a song off her new record titled, "I'm Alright."

Another highlight came shortly after as Twain shared with the crowd that she visited Paisley Park yesterday. She mentioned that it felt interesting and surreal and that she knew Prince very well and that they were actually supposed to work together on her latest released album, Now. She also shared that it was just beautiful to visit it again. She then went on to say,

"I know he (Prince) liked this next song and he actually did a version of it for himself and I was really touched by that. So, this song has been with me for over 20 years now and I know you guys know it so please sing along." She then began to play her hit track, "You're Still The One" while floating through the arena on a guitar case swing.

A few other highlights of the night include when Twain brought a few fans on stage and they took some selfies, and when she brought back out the opener, Bastian Baker for "Party For Two" and "Swingin' With My Eyes Closed."

As the night began to come to an end Twain played, "I'm Outta Here!" which had a positive reaction from the crowd and ended with streamers blasting from the stage.

Finally, as you would guess, the encore was a hit as Twain yelled, "Let's go girls!" and dove into her number one hit, "Man! I Feel Like A Woman!" The crowd went wild and screamed the lyrics right back to her. Following the big hit was "Rock This Country!" which got the crowd up and on their feet dancing and singing along for one final song and another burst of confetti and streamers at the end.

Overall, Shania Twain knows how to put on one amazing show. From the moment she took the stage to the moment she waved goodbye, she never stopped smiling from ear to ear making it evident that she just loves performing and sharing her music with the world. I think it is safe to say that the St. Paul crowd left the Xcel Energy Center feeling more than complete tonight.

9 Eligible Princes You Need To Know About Now That Prince Harry Is Off The Market

You too could have a Meghan Markle fairytale

Prince Harry's royal wedding is officially over and there won't be another British royal wedding for quite some time now, as Prince George is way too young to start thinking about that. Fortunately, there are plenty of other countries with plenty of other princes that are still eligible bachelors at the moment. Lucky for you, I did my research and compiled a list of all the eligible princes you need to know about know that Prince Harry has tied the knot with Meghan Markle.

1. Prince Louis of Luxembourg (31)

Prince Louis is the third son of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg. He has recently become a bachelor again after his separation with his wife of 10 years, Princess Tessy.

Fun Fact: He graduated from Richmond, The American International University of London with a BA in Communications. He can also speak Luxembourgish (the fact that's even a language is fun fact by itself), French, German, and English fluently.

2. Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg (26)

Prince Sebastien is the youngest child of the Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Theresa of Luxembourg, so if you marry him, you'll probably never actually be queen because he's pretty far removed from the throne. However, he's relatively young and single, so best of luck.

Fun Fact: For some bizarre reason, this prince actually went to college in Ohio. He played rugby and graduated from Franciscan University of Steubenville in 2015. Now, he is back in his home country and is an officer in the Luxembourg Army.

3. Prince Phillipos of Greece and Denmark (34)

You read that correctly, Prince Phillipos is the prince of not one, but two countries. He is the youngest son of King Constantine and Queen Anne Marie of Greece and Denmark. Unfortunately, Greece abolished their monarchy, so he's a prince in name only there.

Fun Fact: Like Prince Sebastien, Prince Phillipos also went to college in the United States. He earned his B.A. in foreign relations from Georgetown University in 2008. Fortunately, for us American girls, he is actually still living in the US and he works in New York City as an analyst at Ortelius Capital.

4. Prince Albert of Thurn and Taxis (34)

Ever heard of Thurn and Taxis? No? Me neither. Anyways, Prince Albert is from the House of Thurn and Taxis, which is essentially a very old German aristocratic family. He is the son of Prince Johannes XI of Thurn and Taxis and Countess Gloria of Schonburg Glauchau. His family is well known for their breweries and castles, so unless you're gluten-free, you can't really complain.

Fun Fact: He's not just a prince. He's also a racecar driver and 10 years ago he was ranked 11th on Forbes Magazine's List of The 20 Hottest Young Royals.

5. Prince Mateen of Brunei (26)

Prince Mateen is basically like all the guys you already know, except he's royalty. He's the prince of Brunei, which is a small country on the island of Borneo, south of Vietnam. He is one of the five sons of Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah, and he also has seven sisters. Maybe that's a little different than the guys you know, but one thing he takes very seriously, just like most frat guys, is his Instagram.

Fun Fact: Mateen enjoys playing polo, flying in his private plane, cuddling cute wild animals, and keeping up his Insta game with 890k followers. You can follow him @tmski.

6. Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum of Dubai (35)

Sheikh Hamdan also has a killer Instagram with 6.3 million followers. Anyways, Sheikh Hamdan is the billionaire crown prince of Dubai and the second son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is the prime minister of the United Arab Emirates and essentially the king of Dubai (Emir). He's actually next in line for the throne because his older brother died in 2015.

Fun Fact: Hamdan's hobbies include skydiving, zip lining, and diving, just to name a few, so if you're an adrenaline junkie, Sheikh Hamdan is the prince for you.

7. Prince Hussein of Jordan (23)

Prince Hussain is the son of the extremely beautiful, Queen Rania and Abdullah II of Jordan and next in line for the Jordanian throne. At 23, he's already a second lieutenant in the Jordanian Armed Forces and he was the youngest person ever to chair a UN Security Council Meeting


Fun Fact: Like Prince Phillippos, Prince Hussain also graduated from Georgetown University in Washington D.C.. Also, like Prince Mateen and Prince Hamdan, he's Insta famous with 1.3 million followers and you can follow him @alhusseinjo.

8. Prince Constantine-Alexios of Greece and Denmark (19)

Like Prince Phillipos, Prince Constantine-Alexios also has two countries. Lucky for us though, he is also living in the US right now attending Georgetown University in Washington D.C. (like pretty much every other prince, amirite?) He is the oldest son of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal and Crown Prince Pavlos of Greece.

Fun Fact: He's Prince William's godson, so that's pretty neat. However, if that wasn't cool enough, you might like to know that this Greek/Danish prince was actually born in New York. Oh yeah, you can also follow him on Instagram @alexiosgreece where he has 88.7k followers.

9. Prince Joachim of Belgium (26)

Prince Joachim of Belgium, Archduke of Austria-Este is the third child of Lorenz, Archduke of Austria-Este and Princess Astrid of Belgium. Although he bears the title, "Prince of Belgium," he is also Archduke of Austria-Este, Prince Royal of Hungary and Bohemia, and Prince of Modena. Unfortunately, he'll probably never actually be king in any of these countries as he is ninth in line to the Belgian throne.

Fun Fact: Prince Joachim has degrees in economics, management, and finance, but he decided to join the Nautical School in Brugge after completing college and is currently an officer in the Belgian Navy.

Hope is not lost for all you girls dreaming of finding a Prince Charming that's literally a prince. After reviewing the data, my best advice is to transfer to Georgetown where princes are basically around every corner.

How To Play The 'Portlandia' Drinking Game

"Disclaimer: The first episode will get you plastered." - my roommate.

Most drinking games have a lot of different rules and components—but not this one. There are no shots involved or "finish your drink when..." rules.

Drink when any of these situations or words come up.

1. Drink when the word "Portland" is seen.

Take a drink when you see the word "Portland". That means that the title sequence is a wild ride.

Warning: Whenever the scenes change, there's a "Portland" on the screen.

2. Drink whenever you hear the word "Portland".

Again, the title sequence is a wild ride.

3. Drink whenever Fred Armisen stutters.

This happens more often than you think.

This is a really short list of rules, but it's a really effective game.

Trust.
