She performed alongside her other band members, Jessica Taylor and Kelli Young, who looked equally as sexy in raunchy all black ensembles – with the male members Kevin Simm and Tony Lundon absent.
The band rose to fame in the early 2000s after the group failed to make it into the winning band Hear’Say on Popstars.
Michelle, who has recently become sober following a battle with alcoholism, took to Instagram to share some snaps from the night with her fellow performers. The trio looked ultra glam in the photos, which Michelle captioned: ‘Here we go!’

The concert comes after Michelle took to Instagram last week – this time to celebrate 20 weeks of sobriety and posted a snap from before she went into rehab in which she had puffy and bloodshot eyes.
Michelle previously revealed she did not go for a day without alcohol for three years before she checked into rehab in April.
Confessing that getting herself to rehab was the hardest part of her journey during an appearance on Loose Women, Michelle said: ‘It’s the first step and its the hardest to admit you have a problem and that you’re powerless to drugs and alcohol.

She explained it wasn’t a ‘specific event’ that caused her admission into rehab, but she ended up ‘locked away by herself, lying and manipulating situations’.
Michelle revealed: ‘I became very very ill, it was a five year process. About three years it got a bit of a hold on me, I was happy in my addiction.’
‘Sometimes it’s difficult to say you have an addiction cos at times it feels fun, that’s the reality of it, it [alcohol] was my friend in need.’

‘Any feeling, sad, happy, the sun’s shining, a party – any excuse. It got a hold of me really badly about a year and a half ago.’
‘My husband and friends tried an intervention to get me to rehab.’
‘Three months ago I was on deaths door, I was given a couple of days [to live]. I was so ill I had lost so much weight, my skin was translucent, my belly was swollen and hard. I was sick so I could drink more. I’d feel happy so I could drink more. It controlled everything I did.’
Michelle went on to reveal that she is currently on the 12-step programme and is working on finding a way to move on with her life.
She is also back performing with the band and admitted it is the first time she has ever performed sober.
Michelle said: ‘The Liberty X girls are back on the road – that gave me such a high – I’ve never done a show sober. I thought it was alcohol that gave me that gusto, but it wasn’t it was the girls around me and the crowd singing our songs back.’
