STARS JOIN THE N*E*R*D*S!
Justin Timberlake, Busted and Oasis are among those joining the party...
N.E.R.D brought their star-studded live spectacular to the UK last night (February 17) with a mammoth LONDON show.
Despite not winning any Brit Awards, Pharrell Williams and Chad Hugo made sure their party was the hottest ticket in town at the Hammersmith Apollo.
As well as showcasing material from their imminent second album ‘Fly Or Die’, they welcomed a host of big names to the stage to help them.
Justin Timberlake – now a regular guest at N.E.R.D live shows - appeared midway through to sing vocals on ‘Provider’ and ‘Run To The Sun’ as well as his own ‘Senorita’, while he returned for the finale, which also saw Black Eyed Peas join in for ‘Rock Star’ and Dizzee Rascal join the line-up for a final rendition of ‘Lapdance’.
Bizarrely, supermodel Naomi Campbell was ushered onto the stage before leaving seconds later, while stars in attendance included Liam and Noel Gallagher, Gem Archer and Busted’s Charlie Simpson.
