Sounds Like Friday Night
Programme Name: Sounds Like Friday Night - TX: 27/10/2017 - Episode: n/a (No. 1) - Picture Shows: Dotty, Greg James - (C) Fulwell 73 - Photographer: Guy Levy

BBC One is broadcasting a prime-time live music show. What could possibly go wrong?

The main hosts of the show are BBC Radio 1’s Greg James and Radio 1Xtra’s Dotty, but each episode also has a guest co-host every week, which this week is Jason Derulo. Alongside acts including Dave Grohl, Jessie Ware and Charlie Puth, the presenters are also doing some comedy sketches with the guests.

Doing live TV is difficult enough, but doing both music and comedy is even harder. However, probably the biggest problem is making comparisons with Top of the Pops.

Sounds Like Friday Night is on BBC One at 19.30.
