'Here Come the Girls' is the name of the show, and it really was something to 'SHOUT' about! Last night at the Hammersmith Apollo, a few short hours after appearing on QVC with her skincare range, out very own Lulu teamed up with Chaka Khan and Anastacia for an entertainment extravaganza.
They performed everything from Motown classics to Robbie Williams' 'Angels', plus some great renditions of their own hits. Six backing dancers completed the show's line-up and I have to say, it was FABULOUS!
And how do I know this? 'Cause I was right there, smack bang in the middle of row three with Ali K to my left and Sophie, my daughter, to my right. We sang along and bopped the night away – we even tried to get Ali Young, who was there too, up on her feet to join in, but I'm afraid we failed miserably! Although rumour has it, with total disregard for any potential wrinkle formation, she was smiling… LOL!!!
So, three iconic females from the music industry, three strong voices and incredible energy, particularly from Lulu during her performance of 'SHOUT!'. It's almost impossible to believe that she's 61 and soon to be a grandmother… it must be all the great skincare she uses! If you have a look on YouTube you'll find a vid of her singing 'Mercy' and you can see for yourself just how great she looks!
If you get a chance to see the 'Here Come the Girls' show then don't miss it, it's a real 'feel good' night out. They're in Brighton tonight, Oxford tomorrow, my home city of Nottingham next Tuesday and Lulu's home town of Glasgow next Thursday.
Just a thought, if there was a 'Here Come the Boys' tour, which three male vocalists would you like to see perform together? Personally I'd go for Phil Collins, Stevie Wonder and Barry Manilow OR a younger trio of Justin Timberlake, Usher and Ne-Yo… I know which line-up Sophie would prefer! Who would your top three male singers be?
And talking of top males, Ralph Rossini is back in town with his latest Honora pearls TSV launching at midnight tonight with Ali K… if she's got any voice left, that is!
