Top of the Pops Christmas

Top of the Pops Christmas
Radio Times
Review by:
Jack Seale

An impressively starry selection of the year’s biggest acts, including Robbie Williams and Girls Aloud, are in the studio, as is the author of 2012’s biggest-selling album, Emeli Sandé. Orangey pop star Rita Ora is here, alongside the edgier Wiley and Rudimental. Coldplay didn’t make it, but they’ve sent in exclusive footage of themselves playing Paradise.

Fancy a dance? Sam and the Womp invite you to Bom Bom, and get ready with those phone-receiver hand gestures: Canadian popstrel Carly Rae Jepsen sings the year’s catchiest tune, Call Me Maybe.
