The arrival of the epic guilty pleasure or 'that song from Bridesmaids' for the modern generation saw a packed Bongo's Bingo crowd go absolutely mental in Newcastle on Friday night.
Edele, Keavy, Lindsay and Sinead played their second of four consecutive nights at Bongos as the now world famous club night hosts its St Patrick's Day specials on Tyneside.
The Irish girl group turned the clock back 20 years with a set that kicked off with Jessie Hold On and also included number 1 hits Rollercoaster, To You I Belong and Blame It On The Weatherman.
There was even room for the 1999 Thank ABBA for the Music Brit Awards medley and of course C'est La Vie, which also included a brief segue into Ed Sheeran's Galway Girl.
But the night definitely belonged to Hold On and, as you can see from the video above, the Geordie faithful absolutely loved it.
