I can do without bloody sketches but at least it's a step in the right direction and the variety of artists sounds good.The first guest hosts and performers for BBC One's new prime time music show have been revealed.
Sounds Like Friday Night begins later this month and is being hailed as the long-awaited replacement to Top of the Pops. Hosted by BBC Radio 1's Official Chart host Greg James and BBC Radio 1 Xtra's breakfast show presenter Dotty, SLFN will see the biggest stars in music take part in interviews, sketches and give live performances.
The first series will run for six episodes and starts on October 27 at 7:30pm.
The first episode will be co-hosted by Jason Derulo, while Jessie Ware and Charlie Puth will take to the stage. Dave Grohl will also take part in a pre-recorded sketch. Episode 2 will have Liam Payne act as guest host, while Liam Gallagher, plus another artist TBA will perform.
It was also confirmed today that Royal Blood have composed and performed Sounds Like Friday Night's theme song.
