The sexy, soulful Sinead Harnett was first up to rouse the crowd with the cool vibes of songs including her Snakehips collab No Other Way, She Ain't Me and her Rudimental track Hide which segway-ed into a smooth cover of Justin Timberlake's Cry Me A River.
Next up, James Bay, complete with trademark hat and the best hair in the business, got us VERY excited about his forthcoming debut album dropping a blend of tracks including Let It Go, Scars, If You Ever Want To Be In Love and his recent single Hold Back The River.
But our headliner and former Brand New nominee Charli XCX, looking ace in a white, sleeveless shirt, a mini skirt combo belted at the waist and completed with a pair of white gloves MJ would have been proud of, took the stage for a storming, no nonsense set including XCX faves Superlove, Break The Rules, forthcoming single Doing It and ending on the sing-a-long favourite Boom Clap.
Tonight sees Clean Bandit, Years & Years and Saint Raymond stepping up to show us more future stars in the making. Bring it on! Make sure you're following us on Instagram (@mtvuk) and Twitter (@MTVUK) for all the live action.
Voting for this year's title closes at 11pm tonight. To vote for your favourite nominee to win simply tweet #MTVBrandNew followed by the name of your chosen artist.
