Sophie Ellis Bextor
EMMA LEE Sophie Ellis Bextor got hands waving in the air after a rendition of her biggest hit Groovejet at Norwich's UEA - just like at a football match.
“Do you know, I finally know why it feels so good,” pouted Sophie Ellis Bextor after a sing-along, hands in the air rendition of her biggest hit Groovejet at Norwich's UEA last night.
“It's because the Canaries are in the play-offs,” she declared to rapturous cheers before adding that she couldn't find a Norwich City scarf to wear on stage so had instead incorporated the team's colours into her second outfit of the night.
The evening got off to a laid-back start courtesy of diva-in-waiting Baz.
But from the moment Sophie strutted on to the stage – in a hot pink silk number that would have had any fashionista salivating – the pouting ice-maiden melted into a full-on disco diva.
She shimmied and pouted coquettishly during her hour-long set which was made up of grown-up pop with a twist of 1980s synth nostalgia.
