Oh Missy. What to say? She looked like a rhinestone treat – all bedazzled kicks, jewellery and false eyelashes – but, for those hoping for a 180-degree turn around from her 2004 Melbourne performance, she didn't entirely blow heads. While her songs are usually banging party tunes, hearing just snippets of some ('One Minute Man') wasn't enough (especially when she took time in her set to play BEP's 'I Gotta Feeling' and Usher's 'Oh My God'). 'Work It', 'Get UR Freak On' and 'Ching-A-Ling' and 'Pass The Dutch' were performed in full, but Missy was over-shadowed at times by her enthusiastic hype-man. The kids were into it, regardless – sporting blinged-out chains, three stripes and sneakers, and dancing their hearts out. Her dancers were, again, the show's pinnacle.
