Sugababes tone down the raunch factor (just a little bit) as they perform private set in the Middle East

It's safe to say the Sugababes have certainly vamped up their image since new member Jade Ewen joined the band.
But last night the girls toned it down - if only slightly - as they performed a private gig in the largely Islamic country Azerbaijan.
All three members poured their figures into LBDs, complete with higher necklines than we're used to seeing them in.
Here come the girls: Sugababes Amelle Berrabah, Heidi Range and Jade Ewen perform a private set at the Chinar Lounge in Baku, Azerbaijan, last night
However the same could not be said for their hemlines, with Amelle Berrabah, Heidi Range and Jade all flashing rather a lot of leg.
The group looked stunning for the performance at the exclusive Chinar Lounge, located in the Middle Eastern country's capital city, Baku.
They sang eight tracks, including Freak Like Me, Hole In The Head, Round Round and Get Sexy.
While everything went well with the set, the girls' 5½ flight did not go so smoothly after their plane flew through an electrical storm, causing severe turbulence.
Good form: The girls were more conservative with higher-than-usual necklines but they still flashed a lot of leg in their short ensembles
But after landing safely, they still managed to raise their spirits enough to entertain their select audience before partying with guests after the gig.
Azerbaijan is a secular country although 95 per cent of the population are Muslim.
• The Sugababes, who were joined by new member Jade in November after Keisha Buchanan's shock exit, were yesterday announced as the headline act for the Gaymers-sponsored Camden Crawl.
The chart-topping trio, whose latest single Wear My Kiss entered the charts at No.7 last month, will open the two-day gig at venues around London's Camden Town on May 1.
Lostprophets and We Are Scientists top the bill on the closing night on May 2.
Other acts lined up for the London stages include Mercury Music Prize winners Speech DeBelle and Ms Dynamite, I Blame Coco, Roots Manuva, New Young Pony Club and Gang Of Four.
