Girls Aloud, the British girl group featuring the lovely and talented Cheryl Cole, have reportedly been chosen to play this year's Royal Variety Performance in November, per the NME.com.
Earlier this year, the Girls said they would be reforming for a 10-year anniversary tour. Now, they will be filmed playing in front of the Queen for a special documentary to be aired on ITV later in the year.
The 75-minute special documentary, titled 10 Years Of Girls Aloud, is scheduled to be screened after X Factor on Sunday, Dec. 2 and will also feature footage of the rehearsals leading up to their comeback show at Royal Albert Hall on Nov. 19.
"Being asked to perform at the Royal Variety Show is massive for the band. They performed in 2004 when they were at the height of their fame so it's fitting that they would return eight years late," an insider told The Daily Star Sunday.
It'll be a performance of the highest royal order, too.
The source continued, "It will be one of the Queen's final engagements of a year which will have seen her Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. So it's a major scoop for the girls' comeback to be added to the bill."
