SINGAPORE - There's no escaping those ubiquitous posters.

It's finally here - the 2014 Formula One Singapore Airlines Singapore Grand Prix (just trips off the tongue, doesn't it?).

And so are the accompanying concerts.

Even before the three-night fiesta begins on Friday, we know it's going to be one huge glitzy affair.

Every year without fail, up to 50,000 people throng the Padang just to catch the pop headliners in action.

Or perhaps not.

Are this year's acts really that thrilling?

Or could it be that the live music performances were always meant to be mere side dishes to the high-octane track action?
