Duration: 2 hours, 15 minutes

Jools Holland returns to the BBC studios for an incredible 17th Hootenanny.

Joining Jools' Rhythm & Blues Orchestra are Sir Tom Jones with classic moments from his songbook and the odd rousing soul cover; Boy George with classic Culture Club numbers and a song that reflects on his stay in Pentonville; and Paolo Nutini with tunes from his bestselling album Sunny Side Up, plus a Wynonie Harris cover.

Also performing are three young women who've broken big this year: Shingai Shoniwa with a big band version of her Noisettes' smash Don't Forget The Rhythm from their album Wild Young Hearts; Florence The Machine with a couple of songs from her bestselling debut Lungs, plus a classic Nina Simone number with the Orchestra; also Paloma Faith with the song New York from her debut album Do You Want The Truth Or Something Beautiful? and a Dinah Washington cover.

Classic British guitarist Dave Edmunds reprises his 1968 speed-crazed guitar hit Sabre Dance, plus there are cameos from Orchestra stalwarts Ruby Turner and Rico Rodriguez.

Joining the orchestra in the star-packed studio are also Dizzee Rascal with hits from Tongue 'N Cheek including the year's anthem Bonkers, and Kasabian with anthems from West Ryder Pauper Lunatic Asylum, the British rock album of the year, with a cameo from the show's favourite Mexican thrash-metal-meets-flamenco duo Rodrigo Y Gabriela.

The New Year is piped in by the band of the 1st Battalion of Scots Guards while the musical talent are joined by famous faces including Al Murray, Jack Dee, Jo Brand, Vic Reeves, the BBC Formula One team, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, Jo Wood, Ben Miller, Peter Capaldi and many more, offering their thoughts, predictions and resolutions on the Noughties and the departing and incoming year.
