Gwen Stefani was so excited when she took to the stage as a surprise guest at the JINGLE BALL in Los Angeles on Friday night (03DEC04) she hyperventilated.

The gig was the first time the singer, who is taking time out from NO DOUBT as a solo star, had performed in a while and she was nervous because her parents were in attendance.

Stefani says, "My parents were out there and it's the first time ever playing these songs live for me, so I was winded."
