Michael Flatley captured and enchanted audiences with his 1997 televised dance show 'Lord Of The Dance' of which Flatley was both the star and the executive producer. Now, the show is back in an epic re-staging featuring more contemporary outfits, cybernetic space costumes, disappearing tricks as well as Girls Aloud star Nadine Coyle performing alongside an award-winning cast. The DVD experience shows the performance as it was filmed at the world premiere at the Palladium Theatre in London.
As Kimberley Walsh becomes the second member of Girls Aloud to jump on the baby train, we dig up some facts on the former Girls Aloud singer.
Earlier this month former Girls Aloud member Nadine Coyle gave birth to her first baby daughter. Nadine announced to her Twitter followers on February 10th: ‘I am overjoyed to let you know that our little girl is here. She is amazing! I love being a mammy & will fill you all in soon’ and has since not updated her profile, clearly she is taking time off from social media to enjoy spending time with the new addition to her family.

Fellow Girls Aloud alumni, Kimberley Walsh, took to the social media site this afternoon to let fans know that she will also become ‘a mammy’ (Nadine’s words - not Kimberley’s!) before the year is out. Kimberley tweeted this afternoon: ‘Justin and I are so happy to let you all know we are having a baby!! Couldn’t wait to share our lovely news with you all’. Her best friend Cheryl was also overjoyed by the news, taking to Instagram to congratulate her former band mate.
Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle has announced her pregnancy via Instagram. Who's the father?
Singer Nadine Coyle has announced that she is expecting a baby through the timeless medium of photo sharing site, Instagram. Irish Coyle teased fans by tweeting "This is the most Craic I have ever had!!!!! I need to jazz myself up to tell you all! Xxx" then following up a few hours later by posting an Instagram photo that showed a fuzzy image of the 28 year-old looking surprised and excited with the words "I am having a baby. Xx" written in fancy pink font over the top.
Did The News Come As A Shock?
Only Coyle herself knows for sure whose child it will be as she hasn't announced who the father of her child is yet, but it is suspected that he is American football player and former fiancé Jason Bell who has had an on/off relationship with the star. The pair reportedly reconciled earlier this year after a split. However, during their break, Nicole reportedly got together with Waz Ashayer, a club promoter, who she met at V Festival in a relationship that was serious enough to introduce him to her family.

There were tears all-round at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Wednesday as Girls Aloud called time on their hugely successful career.
Girls Aloud have officially called time on their stunning career in pop music after playing a final show in Liverpool on Wednesday evening (March 20, 2013). The show at the Echo Arena capped a 12-date sold-out farewell tour in the UK, following ten hugely successful years together for the girl group. "We have now come to the end of our incredible time together," read a tweet on the band's official account.
Girls Aloud formed after appearing on reality TV show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002, going straight to No.1 with their debut single 'Sound of the Underground,' and easily seeing off the competition from hapless rival band One True Voice. The group, made up of Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, Kimberley Walsh, Sarah Harding and Nicola Roberts, achieved a string of 22 consecutive hit singles, including four No.1's. Cole - the most successful of the group - tweeted after the Liverpool gig, "I love you @GirlsAloud fans so so so so so much! You have given me everything!" adding, "To the people that haven't been able to make it, for whatever reason, we feel your support regardless and have done for 10 yrs."
Cheryl Cole Performing At Girls Aloud's Final Show In Liverpool
Cheryl Cole assumed it was a good idea to wear a tight fitting leather dress to her pal Kimberly Walsh's birthday party in London last night (November 21, 2012), despite intending to eat until she couldn't eat no more. Cole, 29, opted for the nude coloured dress from The Row, though told fans she had well and truly scoffed her face at the upmarket eatery Zuma.

Donning matching bright orange dresses, the five girls of Girls Aloud took to the stage at the BBC's Children In Need show last night (16th Nov. 2012), marking their first performance of their reunion.
The band that was first created on Pop Idol back in 2002, performed their newest single, aptly titled 'Something New', and performed a dance routine that was a bit of a watered down version of the video. Nadine Coyle, having been asked how it felt to be back on stage, said "That was nerve-wracking! Was that a mistake I made there? Was I supposed to walk forward? All those nervous things!" according to the Mirror. Kimberly Walsh added that "[They]'ve all fallen back into our roles it's as if nothing ever changed. It really does just feel so good to be here."
Nadine, Kimberly, Sarah Harding, Cheryl Cole and Nicola Roberts have all been pursuing solo careers since going on hiatus in 2009, but have chosen to reform to mark 10 years in the making. Past hits include 'Sound of the Underground', 'Love Machine' and 'Something Kinda Oooh'. Their new single is out on Sunday (18th Nov. 2012) and the album, titled Ten will be released next week, on November 26th.
Girls Aloud fans across the country have been delighted by the revelation that Girls Aloud will be reuniting for a tenth anniversary album and tour. The album will be aptly titled 'Ten' which will be released on November 26th 2012, and will be followed by a 12 date tour in 2013.
It was exactly ten years ago today (19th Oct 2012) that the multi-platinum selling girl band first appeared on the original reality talent TV show Popstars: The Rivals, which pitted a girlband against a boyband in the race to Christmas number 1. Girls Aloud won, marking the first of many successes.
The greatest hits album will include four new songs, including the new Children in Need song 'Something New', plus there'll be the possibility to get a deluxe edition with extra features as well. Reported by the BBC Cheryl Cole said "We're really excited. It feels like nothing has changed."

Girls Aloud are set to reunite for a tour next year following the upcoming release of their comeback/10 year anniversary album 'Ten'.
The girl band have been on a three year long hiatus since 2009, with their last performance taking place on September 18th 2009 at Wembley Stadium where they were supporting Coldplay on their tour. Since then, Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts and Nadine Coyle all set out on solo careers with the former being significantly the most successful with two consecutive number one albums and one close behind at number two. The band are set to release their greatest hits album, 'Ten', in celebration of 10 years since they were first put together on TV talent show 'Popstars: The Rivals', going on to top the charts with their first single 'Sound of the Underground'. The album will include their brand new single 'Something New' which is due on November 18th following their first performance of the song on the BBC's 'Children in Need' program on the 16th. Cole, Roberts and Coyle have all expressed excitement at the comeback. 'We're really excited. It feels like nothing has changed', Cole told BBC News, while Roberts thought 'It was meant to be' and Coyle described the reunion as 'like a comfort blanket'.
Their 12 date tour will commence in Newcastle on February 21st after 'Ten's release on November 26th.
Girls Aloud have finally unveiled their reunion plans. The girl group, famous for hits such as ‘Sound of the Underground’ and ‘Something Kinda Oooh’ will be releasing a greatest hits album on November 26 and will be following up the album release with a world tour in 2013. Cheryl Cole, who went on to have the most successful solo career, of the five girls (as well as a stint as an X Factor judge) said, at a press conference “We're really excited. It feels like nothing has changed,” BBC reports.
The news arrived in a timely fashion; the announcement was made ten years to the day that the girls first appeared on the ITV talent show Popstars: The Rivals. Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberly Walsh were selected to form a girl group and were then pitted against a boy band, One True Voice, in a talent contest. Their debut single, Sound of the `Underground, became a number one hit in the UK – the first of 20 consecutive top 10 singles between 2002 and 2009. One True Voice, on the other hand, split up after just two single releases. “It’s worked out really nicely that it’s our tenth anniversary year” said Nicola Roberts.
Girls Aloud will be releasing a new single ‘Something New,’ on November 18, 2012. Fans who pre-order the album this weekend will be given a chance to buy concert tickets for next year’s tour before they go on public sale.
After a three year hiatus, Girls Aloud, the most successful reality-tv music act of all time (according the Guinness World Records), are to reunite and hopefully continue their successes. True to form of almost every contemporary music act, their new single 'Something New' has been leaked online, although it has already been removed from the website upon which it originally appeared.
Girls Aloud relaunched their website last week with a ten day countdown on the site, which inspired and reinforced the rumours about their reunion. The official announcement of their come back was supposed to be this Friday, but it seems the leak of the video is enough evidence to confirm to all that they have definitely reunited. But for how long? NME report that Cheryl Cole hinted in her autobiography that this reunion will be brief. The book apparently suggests a greatest hits album and a 10th anniversary tour. She wrote: “We'll be working on a tour and greatest hits album. Then I think that's it for Girls Aloud. We've achieved more than any of us ever dared to dream of.”
Heat Magazine tried to describe the single by saying that it's a mix of David Guetta, Nicki Minaj, and some bits that “sound a lot like the "neeeeeoooooww" bits in Lady Gaga's Bad Romance.” We are somewhat unconvinced...
