Firday 13th July 2012.
Perez Hilton once again had one night in London on Friday 13th July.In Brixton at the Electric Bar it was meant to start at 8 and finish at 12 but began late causing the crowd to wonder why it was taking so long.
Unlike last year he only had 4 singing acts this year:
It was a long night and the DJ spent at least forty five minutes in between each singer playing dance tunes to try and get people moving on the dance floor.
It wasn’t until Eugene popped up on stage to sing Shotgun that people started dancing. I can’t remember his other songs but this was the first one he opened the night with.
but because there were only 4 acts on the night, the DJ had more air time and it took the stars at least forty five minutes before they came on and sang their songs.
Joe Mcelderry sang Don’t Stop Believing and Sky Scraper in tune and kept the crowd of mostly American teens happy. He sang his own song which i can’t remember the name of and then left us wanting more.
Another 45 minutes later and Paloma Faith came on. A girl from Brixton herself she was pitch perfect and sang her mellow tunes: Picking up the pieces and 30 minute love affair. She wore a beautiful black dress and had her famous quiff fringe. She sang a few more and then left us waiting for Cher Lloyd to pop up.
Jedward had come to watch and support the acts but were hiding in the balconies on the top floor. Someone caught wind of them and then the fans began to go stir crazy. Chanting Jedward and asking them to sing for them!
Cher Lloyd was the last act of the night took the longest time to come out on stage because of technical problems. When she did finally get on the stage her bang played the music louder than her voice so we couldn’t really hear what she was saying. She also had the backing track playing so didn’t sing all the words. I wasn’t really familiar with all her songs apart from the last two Swagger Jagger and Want you Back which left the crowd going wild.

Overall a nice night out and the money goes to charity at the end of the day. I hope that next time it will have a few more than 4 acts and more songs rather than just a DJ playing half the night.
