Shoot ‘Em, Love ‘Em and Get Sexy Right Now: Performances That Happened in the UK this Weekend.

First up is Florence and the Machine, performing live at T4’s Stars of 2009 concert at Earl’s Court.

While I know “You’ve Got The Love” is the current single, I wish she would have performed something grittier for this year-end blowout. Still, there’s no denying that Florence continues to be an absolutely mesmerizing to watch as a performer. I’m still kicking myself for not being able to get to New York when she performed a few weeks ago…

Next is the Sugababes, performing live at BBC’s 1 Xtra Live at Sheffield Arena on Saturday, who also happened to be the only ladies featured in the line-up of performers. The feat would have likely been more impressive had they not been immediately one-upped by the coveted ‘only act named after a furry creature on the line-up’ distinction, which went to Chipmunk.

Now, I’m about to say something controversial: I think this might be my very ‘Babes line-up yet. Look at how much fun they’re having! Look how cute Jade is! Sugababes 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 might have had ten times the soul as this bunch, but at least you can’t smell the internal drama wafting out from the screen.

They may, dare I even say it…like each other? Nahhhhh.

Lastly, we have Rihannoir performing live at the X Factor Results Show last night, and perhaps her greatest performance of “Russian Roulette” yet.

Why? For one thing, she maintains some semblance of a stage presence. For another, that Basic Instinct chair-swivel routine. Her vocals may be shaky throughout, but this is exactly the dramatic performance piece I knew “Russian Roulette” was capable of producing.

Viva la Riri!
