  4. Rod will rock you!

    Rod Stewart

    Fresh from presenting the British Artist of the Year award, Rod Stewart's performing recent single Please, from his latest album Another Country.

    And if that wasn't exciting enough for fans of the Tartan Titan, he's also going to perform fan favourite Sailing, to close tonight's epic evening of live music.

  5. Get your dance crew together and pay homage to Years & Years

    Yep - we've got a clip of tonight's exhilerating performance right here for you to watch again.

  6. Glow sticks ready? Faithless are here


    In what promises to be the most thrilling collaboration of the evening, Faithless have teamed up with the BBC Concert Orchestra for a fresh arrangement of their iconic floor filler Insomnia. 

    We've got chills in here... And it's not due to a lack of central heating. 

  7. Catch a future megastar in action

    Get ahead of the crowd and become a fan of Jack before your friends!

    You can now watch Jack Garratt's performance of Worry right here (and claim blagging rights a few years down the line when he's a global superstar).

  8. British Artist of the Year nominee: Foals

    Oxford five-piece Foals are a staple of many a discerning rock fan’s record collection for their intricate, intelligent take on guitar music. Earlier this year they released fourth album What Went Down, which spawned the loud and angry radio anthem of the same name, and current earworm Mountain at My Gates. With riffs this massive, it’s not surprising that 2016 will see them take over arenas across the UK.
