I'm not a fan of either of his radio hits ("Red Nose" and "Gas Pedal") but he handled his business on this evening. He did most of his work on stage, until technical difficulties gave him an unplanned two-minute break that he spent getting up close and personal with Splash attendees. Before that, the Northern Cali native commanded the stage without needing a bunch of hype men or pre-recorded vocals to back him up.

Video recap below, as promised.
