OMG! The Capital FM Summer Ball
Yesterday in a quiet corner of North West London a couple of old crooners got together to sing a few random tunes...ok thats a lie...We hit the annual Capital fm Summer Ball in Wembley Arena and the event hit us back with a bang! Despite the rain thousands of fans came out to see their favourite UK and US artists performing. Artists on the night included Usher, Cheryl Cole, Pixie Lott and Dizzee Rascal. Usher opened the show and rounded his set with an ICONIC had to be seen performance of OMG! with Will.i.am and Justin Beiber. The crowd completely lost it when the three stars performed the last verse together. Speaking before his performance Usher said it was an honour to sing on last Saturdays BGT and that if he ever did the show his talent would be a badass impersonation of Simon Cowell! When asked about Cheryl Cole/ will.i.am rumours and whether he'd given the BEP frontman mackin' advice he replied "I think he's got a handle on that..." sounds like a possible confirmation of Miss Cole and Will's dating status! Cute lil Beiber told us his hair only takes 5 mins to style....pull the other one, that 'do looks to precise to be that speedy! He also told us that he sometimes prank calls celeb friends. He once called Akon and told him he was his love child. Poor Akon must have been out of his mind!
Our fav performer on the night had to be Tinie Tempah (namely because the cute Brit MC makes us feel a bit Frisky). He talked fashion describing his style as smart, street cool and fresh, he also confirmed that he is single (woohoo) before stepping on stage to perform the no1 smash Pass Out and new track Frisky.
A lady who is definitely as excited about Tempah's single status as the FBC is Lisa Snowden. She confirmed that he is her celeb crush of the moment. Lisa co-hosted with her Capital FM partner in crime Johnny Vaughan. Johnny was cheeky as ever, revealing that he'd seen Lisa's boobs when they were changing "I can confirm that she has the best pair I’ve ever clapped eye's on" and when he took a picture with the FBC he slipped a hand on our hip and whispered in our ear "I think I've found your hot spot." Naughty boy!
Funniest moment on the night had to be when Jason Derulo couldn't take his leather jacket off on stage. Working up a sweat with those dance moves and trying to remove leather doesn't really mix!
The ball also featured a new boy band called The Wanted. Definitely ones to watch. Uber sexy. Very cheeky. Watch out JLS!! Speaking of JLS, the guys came in with kids from the Help A London Child charity. The poor little 'uns looked like they were ready to faint with excitement! Marvin talked about his missus Rochelle from The Saturdays and revealed the secret to landing such a gorgeous lady was being a gentleman. Ahhh! He also told us the pair were house hunting. Hmmm wedding belles? Beautiful JLS/ The Sats babies? Yes please!
Rihanna closed the show with a killer performance of Rude Boy and Umbrella. No one was in their seat, it was all about stomping your feet to the Bajan beauties set.
When the night ended playtime for the performers began. Many went to celeb hotspot Mahiki to get their after party on!
