Alan Thompson had the first play of a Christmas cover recorded exclusively for BBC Radio Wales by Kids In Glass Houses on his Evening Show last night.

Kayley Thomas from Good Morning Wales has been following the band all year. When she posed the question of recording a Christmas track, she thought they'd find it all a bit naff - but found she couldn't get them into the studio quick enough! The whole band were there, check out drummer Phil on the sleigh bells!

Good Morning Wales' Kayley Thomas has been following the band's progress over the year as part of the programme's Ones to Watch in 2010. She's also been following opera singer Catrin Aur Davies from Beulah, Actress Georgia Henshaw from Swansea to see if they could make it big in 2010.

Catrin was snapped up by Glyndebourne - one of the largest Opera Houses in the UK, and internationally renowned. Georgia starred in Skins (on E4), filmed Sea Monsters (coming out in 2011), Shelfstackers (BBC 2) and got a part on Steve Coogan's new HBO comedy Documental, rapping in a spandex purple leotard!

Kids In Glass Houses released their second album, toured with fellow Welsh rockers Lostprophets, toured in Japan and Australia, got to support their childhood heroes Stereophonics at the first ever gig at Cardiff City Stadium.

They also released Undercover Lover, featuring Frankie from girl group The Saturdays, capped off a phenomenal year with a headline tour and plan to do it all again next year.
