Sometimes, only a blurry photo will do

A very belated "Wow" is due, after Girls Aloud's concert in Hammersmith last Saturday.

I've linked a couple of the official photos below - but the one that captures the atmosphere best is the blurry one at the top, courtesy of the triforce blog.

Some more thoughts on the gig:

- Sarah does great harmonies. Very impressed with her voice, although Nadine is really in a class above the others in terms of control and range

- I'd give Nicola top marks for dancing and for her stomach, which is totally ripped

- The backing band clearly have a Pink Floyd fixation. They covered "Another Brick In The Wall", and put a Dave Gilmour-esque solo into "I'll Stand By You". Yuck.

- Nadine is looking very thin, but she was the only one who didn't reveal her midriff. Make of that what you will.

- Top marks to the coreographer, who kept the routines fresh right the way through. We spotted a nod to Janet Jackson in the chair routine. But there was an horrific 'costume change' section where a sweaty man did a twirly dance at the top of the stairs. Unpleasant.

- The changeover from Another Brick to No Good Advice fell apart like Vanessa Feltz in Celebrity BB.

- Then they redeemed themselves by acknowledging No Good Advice's debt to "My Sharona".

- And they put the line "Shut your mouth because shit might show" back into the song. Which actually does make it better!

- I was unfeasibly excitied by the whole thing. And I am 30. Hooray for arrested development (the mental condition, not the band or the tv series)
