Girls Aloud Kick Off Day Two Of Jingle Bell Ball 2012 With Explosive Performance

The newly reformed girl group had the O2 Arena in London screaming with one of their first gigs since recent reunion.

Girls Aloud have opened day two of Capital's Jingle Bell Ball 2012 with an explosive performance, which was full of their biggest hits and some new treats from the five-piece.

The recently reformed band were in high spirits from the start as they got the O2 Arena in London dancing with their smash hit 'Something Kinda Ooooh'.

Wearing an array of stylish outfits, the five-piece rose from a hidden platform in the middle of the stage and delivered a powerful rendition of their song.

Cheryl screamed: "it feels so good to be here, London are you excited to have us back?" as the girls finished their opening number and took the time to stand behind their mic stands for next track 'The Promise'.

Nadine kept things playful in a short white mini-dress with Cheryl in a mirrored sequin number and Nicola rocking an eye-popping polka-dot look.

Nicola asked for fans to hold up their mobile phones and was visibly taken aback by the adhering crowd as the arena became awash in light.

Smoke then filled around the girls as they performed new single 'Beautiful 'Cause You Love Me' and the audience waved their arms in unison.

A blast through 'Call The Shots' saw the girls backed with fire as they finished and clearly continued to enjoy being back on the big stage.

"This is our first proper show together in about three and a half years," declared Kimberley with Sarah adding: "It feels good to be back."

Their set was brought to a close with their recent hit single 'Something New' – taken from their greatest hits compilation 'Ten'.
