POP BITS.There are tough gigs, and there are tough gigs but we have to admire plucky popstar Nicole Scherzinger. The former Pussycat Doll and current X Factor judge took to the stage at London’s G-A-Y on Saturday not knowing what to expect. The gay crowd have previously been very hostile towards Nicole but on Saturday they were finally able to open their hearts (and ears) to her.
The honourary Brit looked stunning in a cut-out catsuit and glitter covered eyes as she sang and danced her way through a 25 minute set with an all-female troupe of backing dancers behind her- which is of course, completely different from her days in Pussycat Dolls. The Scherzinnegger slayed the crowd with racy performances of ‘Don’t Cha’, ‘Right There’, ‘Don’t Hold Your Breath’, ‘Hush Hush’ and ‘Boomerang’. She even opted for some dutch courage between songs and her ‘Poison’ of choice (see what we did there?) was fancy tequila Cafe Patron. Radio 1 has refused to playlist ‘Boomerang’ despite it being brilliant, so let’s hope Nicole’s new-found fan base can help make this a hit. POP BITS OUT.
