Wow!! Should we all have seen this coming all along?!
However, could they have been plotting the 22-year-old's sudden 1D exodus for a while??

It seems as though this day would never come!
And now that it's upon us, it honestly feels like a dream COME TRUE!
Girls Aloud have kicked off their Ten Tour at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle Thursday night, and not only did our beloved singing sensations bring it HARD, but they had a couple of surprises in store for all of the fans who have anxiously been awaiting their return to the stage as a group for what seems like a lifetime!
Although those roses are pretty FEROSH! LOLz!
While she, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts, Sarah Harding and Kimberley Walsh DOMINATED all of our favorite hits that cemented their status as more than just the winners of Popstars: The Rivals, the ladies decided to have some fun with their set-list and through in one hell of an unexpected, yet welcome cover!
At The 100th Royal Variety Show the songstresses sang an old favorite, The Promise, and they reminded us just how much we long the song's vintage feel.
The queen must already be in a great mood after hearing she will be a great-grandmother and we bet the girls only added to her joy!
Ch-ch-check out the ladies light the stage on fire(above)!!
Go girls, g-g-go-go-go!
Girls Aloud's brand spankin' new single off of their AWEsome anniversary album TEN has finally smashed onto the scene, and the song's musical visuals are JUST as soft, romantic, and gorgeous as the tune itself!
Thrilled as catnip-sniffing kittens that these lovely ladies are back in our life!
Wonder if the Queen is a fan? Ha!
The gorgeous Girls Aloud gals were matchy-matchy as they performed for the Queen of England and Prince Philip at Royal Albert Hall for the Royal Variety Performance in London on Monday.
Dressed in strapless mermaid-style gowns with gold brocade embroidery (highly reminiscent of the Dolce & Gabbana F/W 2012 collection), the stunning singers took the stage with mega style as a massive Girls Aloud sign flashed in the background.
Talk about stage presence!
With their lovely Veronica Lake tresses, Cheryl Cole, Nicola Roberts, Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding and Kimberley Walsh sang their hearts out for their royal sovereign as well as several celebs in attendance, including One Direction, Kylie Minogue, and Alicia Keys.
We wish we’d been there!

And it seems the ladies are just as thrilled to be together again!
Ch-ch-check out some ADORBS behind the scenes footage from Girls Aloud's musical video for Something New, the first track off of their anniversary album Ten (above)!
We can't get over how comfortable these girls are with each other after such a long (and semi-nasty) break…
We're so happy to have you back in our life, ladies!
We've got good news and we've got bad news!
The bad news, RiRi will no longer be part of the show.
