Sounds Like Friday Night starts on Friday 27th October at 7.30pm on BBC1.

What’s the format?

Radio 1’s Greg James and 1Xtra’s Dotty grasp the career nettle that is live music on TV, presenting a weekly show live from BBC Television Centre.

The unique selling point is that, along with the usual business of stage performances that feature both big names and emerging acts, the programme asks the superstars to become more deeply involved. As well as doing their new single, one chart-topper also co-hosts the show. If all that weren’t dangerous enough, James and the guest host also appear in comedy sketches
