Cheryl Cole looked visibly emotional on stage. Copyright [Splash]And it wasn't just Chezza who looked all emotional - Kimberley Walsh and Sarah Harding seemed to join their Girls Aloud bandmate in shedding a couple of tears.
The girls are understandably emotional - this is the first arena tour they've done for nearly four years.
All five girls looked emotional as they performed. Copyright [Splash]The tour is also a massive celebration of the fact Girls Aloud have been together - and have remained friends - for TEN WHOLE YEARS.
That in itself is pretty emotional.
And if rumours are to be believed, once the Ten Tour is over, the girls will go their separate ways for good.
However, that's too emotional to even contemplate, so we're going to move swiftly on.
