A vision in an acid lemon yellow trouser suit and sporting a new jet black bob, Carly Rae Jepsen (no relation!) rocked up at G-A-Y on Saturday fresh from Capital’s Summertime Ball with her full band and treated the packed club to five brilliant tracks. After a couple of hiccups where she couldn’t hear the monitors, the Canadian songstress proved she was no ordinary reality show fodder (she placed 3rd in 2007’s Canadian Idol season five) and reinforced the argument that it is actually better NOT to win these shows if you want a credible music career!
Her G-A-Y set list included ‘Tonight I’m Getting Over You’, ‘Black Heart’ and ‘Gimme Love’ from her new album E·MO·TION, worldwide number one hit ‘Call Me Maybe’ and new single ‘I Really Like You’ and saw her flirtatiously bouncing around the stage in heels and having a ball.
While clearly holding something back and declaring “I really really really really really really like you”, the audience had other ideas and went all the way, screaming back “we love you”. Hard to disagree.
