As 'the voice' of the Sugababes, Amelle Berrabah is used to being supported vocally by her other two bandmates.

But last night rival girl group star Rochelle Wiseman of The Saturdays was playing the supporting role instead, admittedly of a rather different kind, as she propped up a bleary-eyed Amelle.

The pair were pictured arriving together at Alto club in London's Soho just before midnight, with a worse for wear Amelle, 26, leaning on Rochelle, 21.

Earlier they attended a Pool Disco Party at Shoreditch House along with Rochelle's boyfriend, JLS singer Marvin Humes, 25.

But they weren't prepared to let the night end there as they enjoyed the festivities of the Bank Holiday weekend into the early hours.

Marvin and Rochelle left Alto at around 2.30am, with Amelle following closely behind around 10 minutes later.

Both the girls wore equally eye-catching outfits with Amelle slipping into a strapless white dress covered in love hearts while Rochelle poured her curves into a figure-hugging peach bandage-style dress, teamed with a leather jacket.

Rochelle looked very much in love as she gazed into Marvin's eyes before clambering into the back of a taxi.

Amelle left separately and couldn't stop laughing as she was escorted to her car by a burly security guard who was munching on a chocolate bar.

The Sugababes, whose current line up also includes Heidi Range and Jade Ewen, are currently fighting to retain ownership of the band's name.

It comes after Mutya Buena - one of the original members - applied to the European Union trademarks authority in November last year.

But the band, and their record company Island Records, have now filed a notice of opposition.

The group, which formed in 1998, underwent their third line-up change last October when Keisha Buchanan left, being replaced by Ewen.

Range replaced Siobhan Donaghy in 2001 while Amelle stepped up in 2005 when Buena quit.

The Saturdays - who signed to Polydor in 2008 - remain intact with no line-up changes to date. The other members are Frankie Sandford, Mollie King, Vanessa White and Una Healy.

Jade at Keep A Child Alive Black Ball 27.5.10

Whoa! Jade Ewen makes a serious statement on the red carpet while attending the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball.

The English stunner decided to go for something black and strappy for the annual fundraiser, and she pulled it off like a pro.

Ewen, of course, came to acclaim after representing her native UK in the Eurovision song contest. While she was a runner up in that, if there was some sort of competition for looking fierce on the red carpet, we imagine Ewen would win it all by a mile.

Jade Ewen and Gabriella Climi arrive at the Keep A Child Alive Black Ball held at St John's, Smith Square on May 27, 2010 in London, England.

Dubovie I'm under Eurovision pressure

Dubovie: 'I'm under Eurovision pressure'

The UK's Eurovision entry Josh Dubovie
UK Eurovision hopeful Josh Dubovie has admitted that he is under pressure to do well at the contest following Jade Ewen's success at last year's event.

The 19-year-old singer confessed that he has a hard act to follow after Ewen secured fifth place and 173 points with 'It's My Time' last May - Britain's best result in seven years.

Speaking to Inside Soap about Ewen's legacy, Dubovie commented: "I am under a little bit of pressure, but the only thing I can do is my best. I think as a country all we can do is support our act and see what happens.

"All the other countries have got their own opinions, and the voting system changed last year [to include juries]. I think we did very well then, so I hope I can follow in Jade's footsteps."

Dubovie was also asked whether he has made plans for the future after seeing Ewen land a post-Eurovision career in Sugababes.

He said: "Well, I think I'm probably not best suited to being in the Sugababes. They get through members at an alarming rate, though, so it's bound to be my turn soon! I've got complete tunnel vision at the moment, I'm completely focused on Eurovision - but who knows what may happen afterwards, especially if I end up doing well?"

The Eurovision Song Contest final takes place in Norway on Saturday and will see Dubovie performing the Pete Waterman-penned 'That Sounds Good To Me'.

Video: Jay Sean Hits the Studio with Birdman

Video: Jay Sean Hits the Studio with Birdman

The buzz about R&B sensation Jay Sean's next album has begun and the singer is hard at work on his project. To add to all the hype Jay Sean has released footage from the Miami Hit Factory today. The singer keeps tweeting about his time in the studio working on his album so it makes sense that he sends footage from his work session. One of his latest tweets said "It's nearly 3am and we just finished at the studio. Another siiiiick track done!!! Braaaap! I'm laying it down for u my peeps! we comin!"

We all know that when Jay Sean shares footage with his fans he never fails to entertain them. The artist's humor leaves fans eager to watch any video with him in it. While he is not all laughs in this video Jay is laid back and is hanging out with co-founder of Cash Money Records, rapper Birdman. The two talk about his next album and they both even send a shout out to U.K.'s acclaimed photographers, Amit & Naroop.

Besides doing a photo shoot with Jay Sean the photographers have shot Britain's leading girl group Sugababes amongst other a-list artists. Naroop also happens to be Jay's brother. So it looks like Jay Sean isn't the only one with talent in the family and it's cool that Birdman recognizes it!

Jay Sean has had one heck of a year. Late 2009 he released his single "Down" which hit the number one spot on the Billboard Chart. Hopefully his hard work will pay off and he will be able to repeat the same magic on his next album. Are you excited to hear Jay's new tracks? Drop us a line.

Tinie Tempah Has Holiday Deal With Parents

Tinie Tempah doesn't understand money so treats his parents to a summer holiday in return for managing his finances.

Tinie Tempah's parents manage his finances in return for a summer holiday.

The rapper - who shot to fame earlier this year with his debut single 'Pass Out' - admitted he had an "agreement" with his parents where he had promised to take them on vacation every year for helping him organise his cash.

He told the Daily Star newspaper: "Sometimes money can overtake your decisions if you think about it too much. Some people only get up for the money and I don't want to do that. I didn't have much when I was younger but I was brought up by my parents who work really hard for everything. They understand money on every level and I'm so fortunate I have parents I can confide in and help manage my money.

"I've got an agreement with my parents now where every year I have to take them on a holiday. They brought up four respectful, well-educated kids so it's time for them to let their hair down."

The 21-year-old music star also revealed he hopes to invest in a new girlfriend in the near future, and has a crush on Jade Ewen from the Sugababes.

He added: "I saw Jade Ewen at a party with red lips and it really did the job for me."
