Leona joy at home crowd show

Singer Leona Lewis has spoken of her pride at performing on home ground to open Radio 1's Hackney Weekend.

The 27-year-old showed off her flower power in a floral kimono, black crop top and black trousers, as she took to the main stage at Hackney Marshes in east London as part of the BBC's biggest free live event.

The X Factor winner said backstage: "I really wanted to open when they asked me to do it. When I went on I saw 30,000 people running towards the stage. It was lovely performing in front of a home crowd. It was good, I swear half the audience was my friends and family."

She added: "This has been in the works for over a year, so to finally see it happen and come to fruition was great."

Bleeding Love singer Leona, who won the X Factor in 2006, was introduced to the stage by DJ Trevor Nelson as "the most famous singer to come out from Hackney".

Singing from a microphone covered with synthetic flowers, Leona's first track was the aptly-titled Coming Home, originally sung by Diddy Dirty Money, which featured a guest appearance from rapper Wretch 32.

Rita Ora wowed the audience when she took to the stage later, wearing a matching printed shirt and trouser outfit that resembled a pair of white pyjamas.

Other acts to perform to the crowd included Rizzle Kicks, N-Dubz's Dappy, Michael Kiwanuka, Ed Sheeran and Example. Sunday's biggest headliner is Rihanna.
