Step aside, Garth Brooks. Shania Twain is in the house.
The down-home diva blew the roof off the Denny Sanford Premier Center Wednesday night. Country fans flooded the event center, eager to see the music icon on her "Now" tour.
"I love Sioux Falls. It's gorgeous," said Twain as she sashayed across the stage during her set. "It's a really pretty town. We're happy to be back."
To warm up the crowd, Twain selected the Swiss heartthrob Bastian Baker.
A sultry voice with the looks to match, Baker had many women in the crowd screaming for more. The opener's set of upbeat tunes set the stage for two hours of non-stop Shania.
Amid a feeling of tense excitement, the superstar emerged from the rear of the arena and made her way through the crowd.
With her charming, yet polished, dialogue, Twain delivered a flashy and well-choreographed spectacle.
Throughout the evening, the country star belted out fan favorites such as the 1997 hits "That Don't Impress Me Much" and "You're Still The One."
Between the classics, Twain performed songs from her new album "Now." The moody ballads "Poor Me" and "I'm Alright" showed the artist's more serious side.
Despite the brief moments of self-reflection, the singer performed a show full of fun costumes and flashing lights. By the end, there were too many wardrobe changes to count, with each outfit more fabulous than the last.
Although some of the props bordered on kitschy, like the metal figures with cowboy hats, there was always something visually interesting happening.
As Twain belted out her iconic girl power anthems, a troupe of hunky dancers heated up the stage. It's was hard to argue when the superstar declared the sizzling performers "the sexiest guys on the planet."
Shania Twain's performance was bursting with theatrics from a laser show to full body light suits. At one point, the country star took the air, flying above the crowd in a swing made out of a guitar case.
A few lucky fans even got an invitation to join the singer on stage for a selfie, including an adorable seven-year-old boy in a rhinestone cowboy hat.
After being showered with silver streamers, the crowd broke into applause, demanding an encore. To close, Twain brought down the house with "Man! I Feel Like A Woman" and "Rock This Country!"
