Critix's live coverage of the Power premiere at Madison Square Garden.
Power one of the most anticipated series on television returns with its 6th and final season! Critix had the privilege of attending the Season 6 Premiere at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The stars pulled up to the arena in true Power fashion the same way Ghost pulled up to his nightclub Truth early in the series. Curtis Jackson aka 50 Cent put together Powers first ever premiere at the Garden that was nothing short of spectacular.
50 cent opened the event with a 2 hour concert bringing out special guests and artists throughout the night. He started off the concert reuniting with his old crew G-Unit and brought out other artists to perform such as Trey Songz, A-boogie, Snoop Dogg, Jaquees, Davido, Fabolous and more. Between each act, 50 cent would perform his own songs sometimes passing the spotlight over to Terrence Howard to get the crowd excited for the season premiere. Omari Hardwick (Ghost), Naturi Naughton (Tasha), Joseph Sikora (Tommy), and Lela Loren (Angie) all touched the stage to get the crowd excited, pitting fans against one another having them cheer either for Team Ghost or Team Tommy.
Season 5 ended with a bang and season 6 episode 1 starts with shocking the viewers within the first few minutes, completely setting the tone for the entire 6th season. The show picks up right where it left off with more heart felt drama between all your favorite characters with absolutely no sign of slowing down the action. The plot thickens while the show taps deep into their emotions forcing them to show their true colors. Things start to go bad, and fast, pushing each charachter into solitude where their only option is to watch out for themselves. Some words are said, some backs are stabbed, and we will witness what they are calling "The Final Betrayal".
Listening to 15 thousand fan reactions echoing throughout the arena expressing with each twist and turn gave light to how captivating Power is with their audience. After the episode ended the cast came out to the stage to say farewell while thanking everyone for coming out and supporting the show throughout 6 seasons. Power returns this Sunday August 25th 2019 only on Starz!
