EIGHT hours of non-stop entertainment from some of the world’s biggest stars saw 80,000 fans turnout to Wembley Stadium on a school night.
Capital’s Summertime Ball with Barclaycard was back with bang yesterday after coronavirus postponed it for three years.

Superstar singer Ed Sheeran kicked off the show in front of packed crowds before making a 200-mile dash back to Manchester to continue his tour that evening.
It got the Ball off to a sensational start, as the new dad treated fans to some of his top hits as he stood solo on stage with his guitar.
It was in stark contrast to stars including Anne-Marie, Mabel and Ella Eyre who flashed the flesh in crop tops as they performed huge sets with back-up dancers, lighting effects and live bands.
Becky Hill was blown away by the tens of thousands of fans as she walked down the runway in a playsuit and gold high-heeled boots.
The camera caught her whispering “oh wow” as she looked out to the screaming crowd.
The UK’s Eurovision star Sam Ryder performed his famous Space Man anthem – and heard Wembley singing back at him.
Meanwhile DJs Nathan Dawe, Jax Jones and David Guetta brought out star-studded guests to perform on their spell-binding sets.
The star of the night was Harry Styles who was performing for the first time at the Ball as a solo artist after debuting at the annual event with his One Direction bandmates Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan back in 2015.
Kicking off his set with fan favourite Golden, Harry later managed to silence the whole of Wembley before singing As It Was to his adoring fans.
One superfan said: “I might as well die now because my life has peaked.”
“Best night of my life,” said another.
Someone else added: “I finally got to see @Harry_Styles live again after 4 years and he was epic!”
