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.


Fearne Cotton and Reggie Yates present performances by Robbie Williams, Emeli Sande, Jay-Z, Rita Ora, Carly Rae Jepsen, Paloma Faith, Florence and the Machine and Conor Maynard. Plus, Rudimental, Sam and the Womp! and Wiley showcase their hits of the summer and Girls Aloud celebrate 10 years in showbusiness. There is also an appearance by X Factor winner James Arthur and exclusive footage of Coldplay performing their smash hit Paradise, before the duo reveal which song is this year's Christmas number one.
