- 21.04 - Estelle's band take the stage. Everyone's wearing a tie! Dapper is definitely the theme of the evening.
- 21.05 - The Jazz Café is completely rammed now. It's hard to move.
- 21.17 - Twin B comes to the stage to introduce the headliner - Estelle.
- 21.19 - She looks amazing, wearing a shimmering white sequinned mini dress and purple heels.
- 21.22 - No messing about. She piles straight in with 'So Much To Say'. Next up it's a new one called 'Magnificent' with a dancehall flavour.
- 21.25 - Kardinal joins her to toast roof verses on 'Magnificent'. Everyone's skanking away.
- 21.27 - As usual Estelle moves effortlessly between MCing and singing. She's in complete control me the crowd.
- 21.29 - She's just pulled a man from the audience for a quick slow dance.
- 21.32 - Now we've been warned, it's a 'man bashing' song. It's 'More Than Friends', another new one that goes down a storm.
- 21.36 - 'Sub Love' now, another new one. And there's a special surprise guest on stage - Kano.
- 21.37 - The crowd roar!
- 21.41 - It's time for an oldie - Nina Simone's 'My Baby Just Cares For Me'. The crowd are singing along.
- 21.44 - The backing singers come back on for one of Estelle's classics - 'Free'.
- 21.48 - H. Boogie comes on to add her vocals to Estelle's breakthrough track - '1980,' before staying on for 'Go Gone'. Everyone's waving their hands...
- 21.51 - All bases are covered tonight, from dancehall and grime through to soul and rock, and the crowd are with her all the way.
- 21.54 - More new tracks now from her forthcoming album. It's on John Legend's Homeschool Records label.
- 21.57 - Another new one - 'American Boy'. This one's on a soulful house tip.
- 22.01 - 'American Boy' is going down really well. Maybe tune of the might so far. The bass is so heavy that the bassist's amp has blown up!
- 22.03 - The show continues anyway with 'Shine', Estelle's 'personal statement to the world'.
- 22.07 - It's all gone Queen! Just for a second though - it's the rock intro to current single 'Wait A Minute' and the finale to the show.
- 22.13 - Estelle leaves the stage pouring with sweat and with the crowd screaming. It's been a heavy heavy set.
