Today was T4’s Stars of 2010, a major pop showcase in West Londonâ€™s Earls Court featuring loads of performances from the major chart-performing artists of the year. Let’s run through some of the MuuMuse favorites that hit the stage!
Ellie Goulding truly cut loose for her performance of “Starry Eyed.” (Fitting song for the night’s theme, no?) (WATCH)
Donning a ringmaster’s jacket, the twinkling starlet had an absolute blast working up and down the stage like a madwoman and kicking around the space balls floating through the audience–she even whips her hair back and forth for a perfect Britney hair flip at the 1:44 mark! I loved it.
Alexandra Burke worked it out to her RedOne-produced hit of questionable quality, “Start Without You.” (WATCH)
Of course she did some live singing and some choreography, but the real fun doesn’t start until the very end–at the 2:40 mark–when the boys ditch their tops and give us something really worth watching. Mmm…start me up!
Pixie Lott classed it up with a performance of the latest single off of her debut album re-release Turn It Up Louder, “Broken Arrow.” (WATCH)
Pretty straightforward–a nice, solid delivery of her gorgeous new ballad.
Look! It’s The Saturdays, performing their latest Top 10 single, “Higher”! (WATCH)
While their styling is still a tremendous issue (and why are we performing on a car again?), the vocals and choreography were completely on-point. Una nailed that major note again as she did on Lorraine, and Vanessa even had a brilliant, semi-overenthusiastic note at the song’s very end! A job well done for the girls carrying us through until a better girl group comes along.
Finally, The Wanted performed their mega-smash debut single, “All Time Low.” (WATCH)
Starting out with a rather exciting burst into flames, the boys did their thing to the screams and tears of a million girls and gays. Highlights include the awkward one’s awkward white boy jig at the 0:56 mark (Jay), the torches aloft moment at 2:10, and the hot one’s general existence on stage (Max, bald one). Work it, sexy boys!
And those are the performances you should know about. Have a good rest of your weekend!
