FINAL THOUGHT ON 1XTRA LIVE 2009

Gemma | 12:22 UK time, Wednesday, 2 December 2009


1xlivejamanmeedit.jpgPIC: Rounding up a heady day above with Jam (in second outfit choice!)


It felt more than surreal waking up the morning of November the 28th without a Superwoman's guise for protection (Look at below blog post).. Obviously excitement fell off the rictor scale as the day went on. Trevor was trying to keep me calm and telling me not to shout into the microphone during the rehearsal, inbetween trying to make the best of toilet smelling, dank dressing rooms and backstage interviews for BBC3. Below are some pics of the day, 1Xtra put on a beast of show at Sheffield Arena....


Persanol highlights included...



  • Deciding the blummin day before that I wanted to do costume changes, which meant getting my mate to pick out dome stuff from my wardrobe at home, getting it sent to 1Xtra during Twin B's show so that he could bring it up with him to Sheffield arena. (Planned 3 but only had time to do 2!)

 PIC: Below Just before I interviewed Dizzee... (in original outfit choice)

  • Watching Chase and Status perplex JLS fans with dubstep.

  • Realising just how important a day it was for Chipmink & Tinchy whilst interviewing them backstage, we only had a couple of minutes for the interview but I could see and feel what they've both been able to achieve this year.

 

  • Dancing to Bonkers behind the stage where I was waiting to close the show with Trev, Max, Westwood and Mistajam. Oh and watching Calvin Harris storm the stage with his waving limbs.

Kano tweeted about how 1Xtra had raised the bar straight after his performance and after experiencing that, I agree.

Some more amazing pics..

 

Please email me and let me know how you experienced 1xtra Live, I'd love to hear...
