I was a kid in a sweet shop (quite literately!)

The (not so) secret life of Jemmalee x:blush-anim-cl:



I was lucky enough to go to Berkeley Square last night as one of Mika's guests. I didn't even know I was going until 3.30pm yesterday and was on the train at 4.20pm! (you might think so what you had plenty of time, but I would like to inform you that I had to dress in a carnival fashion!). Unfortunately I was on my lonesome so did what I do best when I'm in a queue, talk to strange randoms about Mika!

The sight of the big top was awesome and was lit up with pink fairy lights. After receiving my exclusive pink armband (which meant free drinks all night!) I was soon whisked up the pink carpet to be greeted by Mika's Royal Sympathy Band in full costume!

Once inside there were people dressed up as lollipop girl (handing out the biggest lollipops you have ever seen!), Chew Chew, a couple of Big Girls and some giant flowers! I even managed to wrangle a lollipop off of Chew because I said he wasn't allowed it (I'm so bloody cheeky!). After a couple of drinks (you could have what you liked but I'm still ill!) and a wonder round (I could of queued up for popcorn and blue candy floss but I wanted to get to the front of the stage) I visited the loo. So what? you may ask. oh my god these were the best portaloos you could imagine (they even had tissues and hand cream!).

So I was feeling pretty much like a six year old at Christmas by this point and then the entertainment began!

There was a salsa band snaking it's way around the room with girls with very little clothing and some big men with big drums (something for everyone!) then the support band came on. I really cannot remember what they were called but they were like the Hillbilly Von Trapp family! They were exceptionally good and seemed to play every instrument ever invented from the harmonica to a trombone!

I was then interviewed by a camera crew who asked me crap questions about Mika who received equally crap answers. By this point I had had 2 vodka's and I'm on medication and may have come across as a little obsessive and she asked me if I was Mika's stalker! Cheeky cow! By this point I had also managed to blag a balloon flower which I do believe may have hindered the enjoyment of the evening of the people behind me!

I then spotted Dazzle in the crowd who had blagged his way in (don't ask but involves Dan from The Feeling).

So I'm second from the front (some girl who I met in the queue nicked my space at the front when I went to the loo and she was bloody tall, and i'm 5'2 (158cm)!) and after some amazing acrobatics and magic it was time for Mika!

Mika was dressed all in white with a black ring master style jacket and yellow braces. He also had some shiny gold shoes which he only kept on for the first song after putting his foot on his piano and saying "What the #### do think of my shoes!" He then remained in his stripy socks which I believe were wicked witch of the west inspired ( the jacket also came off and Mika was nearly stripping in front of my eyes!).

He started off with relax but I really cannot remember the order of song's (sorry) but over my shoulder was spine tingling wonderful and during big girls Mika was joined on stage by 2 big girls! This was fabulous and Mika ended up with lipstick on his cheek for the rest of the set!

He rounded things off with lollipop and was joined by the lollipop girls, some HUGE balloons and pink confetti!

After the show was over (it was only 10pm) I headed to the bar, danced like a loon and star spotted. By now you probably know that Sophie Ellis-Bextor and The Feeling were there but so was Scott Mills and various tv journos that you know the faces but not the names of!

By 11pm the party was over and we knew that Mika was not going to come out from the back stage area (even though Dazzle was trying to get back there!), we headed home. I must admit I got some very strange looks walking through Liverpool street in my bright pink coat and headband and carrying a huge balloon flower!

I really cannot put into words how magical an evening it was but Mika did well when he declared it as the 10th birthday party of his dreams! Alice in wonderland eat your heart out, I've licked the Mika lolly and I'm stuck!

I am sooooo jealous of your experience!


I had tickets for the Gig but I couldn't make at the end because of work and tiredness. :boxed: I suppose I wasn't in the mood. Now that I pictured your evening I wish I did the effort...


Anyway, I hope koko's gig will be as good as this one.

WOW! Great footage, looks like everyone had a brilliant time. Wish I could of gone but couldn't get a ticket, but only a couple of weeks to Dublin so I'm just counting the days. I must say, it seriously looked like the Flaming Lips concert I went to a couple of months back, with everybody in costume on the stage.

I reckon that before he gets to Glastonbury, Mika won't have to worry about singing Grace Kelly, 'cause we'll all be singing it instead, he can kick back and have a cup of tea, and just get up to do the "Kerching" at the end.:roftl:
