LOOKING a million dollars, Jamelia opened with a jaw-dropping rendition of Superstar. But it was empowering old tune Thank You which put Girl Power on the frontline. Bananarama delivered an electric, bum-shaking Venus, while N-Dubz gal Tulisa left her attitude behind as she performed a stunning solo cover of Keisha White's Weakness In Me. Ladled with bags of confidence, Joss Stone, above, put anyone who ever doubted her back in their place. The shoeless babe wowed.
The only male star, Queen's Brian May, brought scorching guitar riffs and Melanie C got the disco balls spinning to I Turn To You, while Welsh songstress Bonnie Tyler showed she still has the oomph and husky tones.
