Rocked by pop; RecordView.
T in the Park belonged to pop stars such as Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, The Saturdays and Lily Allen.
Massive international rock outfits like Kings of Leon, Nine Inch Nails and Manic Street Preachers were overshadowed by the pop princesses, who drew huge crowds and provided the major talking points of the weekend.
The Saturdays put even the mighty Glasvegas to shame with an incredible turnout in the vast Tut's tent - unlucky fans are probably still queuing to try to get in now.
Perry launched the weekend's biggest singalong with I Kissed A Girl - and even thumbed her nose at the browbeaten rockers with a spectacular cover of Queen's Don't Stop Me Now.
And Lady Gaga's flesh-flashing routine left fans speechless on Saturday.
As shell-shocked rock bands wondered why their axes had lost their sharpness, T's pop converts enjoyed the best festival in years.
What odds The Saturdays, Katy, Gaga and Lily taking over a stage completely next year? See you down the front.
