Girls night out! Gywneth Paltrow and Rochelle Wiseman enjoy a night out at Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne gig
12:53 GMT, 19 May 2012
One's in a girl band and the other's starred in Glee, but last night Rochelle Wiseman and Gywneth Paltrow enjoyed an entirely different genre of music.
The famous ladies attended the first London show of Jay-Z and Kanye West's Watch The Throne tour at the O2 Arena.
However, while Rochelle, 22, ended up enjoying the show with her fianc Marvin Humes and One Direction's Niall Horan, Gywneth brought along her two children, Apple, eight, and six-year-old Moses.

The Hollywood star looked like any other concert-goer as she arrived at the London venue with her two children.
Wearing a pair of black wet-look jeans with matching boots and a black blazer, Gywneth's look was rather casual for a Friday night out.
Her daughter on the other hand stood out from the crowd with her hair dyed pick and wearing a turquoise blue denim jacket.

Rochelle, however, went for a rather glamorous look despite spending the night dancing in the crowd.
She teamed a pair of black, white and tan heels with a white fitted dress and a grey tweed blazer.
On her arm she carried a tan-coloured designer handbag and no doubt met Marvin and Niall once she was inside.
The Saturday's singer clearly had a great night as she tweeted at around midnight: 'That was the BEST show I've seen in a long time! #TheThrone #Jayz&Kayne woowww you must go and watch it! TOO many tunes :)'

She also posted a black and white photo of her with TOWIE star Georgina Dorsett, and also her with the men – who appeared to be very good friends.
The gig was the first of five shows that Jay-Z and Kayne will play at London's O2 following their tour of the U.S. and Canada.
The pair are of course performing songs from their hit album, which goes by the same name, and was released in August last year.
No doubt various other famous fans of theirs will be attending their remaining shows this weekend.

One could be forgiven for thinking that Kanye West was in London solely as the latest bit of arm-candy for reality star starlet Kim Kardashian.
Having been seen moodily trailing behind her during the curvaceous one’s whistlestop promotional tour in the capital, the real reason for his arrival became clear last night.
Kanye joined rap superstar Jay-Z onstage at the opening night of the European premiere of their Watch The Throne tour – which accompanies the album of the same name they released last year.
On a stripped down stage, they first appeared opposite each other on platforms which rose in the air as they performed numbers Otis, Who Gon' Stop, and The Illest M*********** Alive.
Giant video screens acted as a backdrop, with majestic footage of wild animals, and film montages including a disturbing image of a child dressed in full KKK regalia.
But aside from those distractions and some stunning onstage pyrotechnics, the focus was purely on the two entertainers who provided a flawless live performance of their album, and individually some of their greatest hits.
Designer loving Kanye, 34, complete with leather skirt over his favourite leather jeans ran through favourites from his debut album College Dropout, to more recent hits such as Power, Runaway, All The Lights, and Blood Diamonds.
While rap veteran Jay-Z, 42, had plenty to choose from his back catalogue performing Hard Knock
Life, Big Pimpin', Dirt On Ya Shoulder, 99 Problems and Empire State of State to name a few.
But it was their performances together that really rallied the sold out crowd which included probably Jay-Z's youngest fan Gwyneth Paltrow's son Moses, who was was seen holding up the Roc Diamond sign about 30 minutes before 'Uncle Jay' came on stage.
JLS, and Rochelle from The Saturdays also danced from their vantage points in the O2 boxes.
A poignant performance on New Day ended with a shout out to 'all the fathers taking care of their kids' as Jay-Z, a new dad to daughter Blue, with singer wife Beyonce, vowed to be the father he never had to his children.
The rappers kept everyone on their feet for almost two hours, and ended with a roof-raising rendition of N***** In Paris, delighting the packed O2 Arena with four encores.
Kanye and Jay-Z will perform four more nights at the O2 Arena before moving on to Manchester and Birmingham.
