Maybe they should have given Kelis the headline spot.

Despite being nearly 15 minutes late, the American singer still managed to squeeze in most of her popular songs.

The crowd ‘bounced’ along as she also performed songs from her latest album ‘Food’.

Her strong vocal range was displayed as Kelis, and her backing singer, challenged each other to hit the highest notes.

She also performed solo versions of two songs she had performed with other artists, ‘Millionaire’ (which was originally with Andre 3000) and ‘Got Your Money’ (which shot her to fame with Old Dirty Bastard), which were well received by the ever growing crowd.

There was a distinctive jazz feel to the set as well, as she performed Fireworks, Acapella, Trick Me and the song most were looking forward to, the 2003 hit Milkshake, with the sounds of the backing band coming through strong throughout.

As bubbles came across the crowd, with one even hitting the singer – she didn’t mind however as she said she loved bubbles – the only disappointment I had was thinking what the set could have been with 15 extra minutes.
