Stromae Performs 'Formidable' In A Seattle Motel And Bar

Stromae performs his hit "Formidable" in a Seattle bar in the latest clip for his "Lessons" series promoting his North American tour.


In support of his North American tour, Stromae has been releasing new installments of his 'Lessons' video series. The last episode saw the artist performing his hit single "Papaoutai" in various spots throughout NYC. This time around, the Belgian singer finds himself in Seattle where he lays out the beat for his single "Formidable" from the comfort of his motel room. The musician makes the process look easy as he plays the piano with his foot and jokes around with his 'keytar.' Later, we see Stromae belting out his song in a shadowy bar in front of a skeptical crowd. At first, the audience seems perplexed by the singer's quirky performance, but by the end of his set, it looks like he may have gained a couple of new fans. Watch the humorous clip via the Fader and check out a list of his upcoming North American tour dates below, tickets are available now.
