One of the items on our Christmas wishlists every year is a concert ticket so we can watch our favorite musical acts perform live. So when we heard Capital FM just had the Jingle Bell Ball 2014 this weekend, which brought our fave musicians together, we just had to watch. We're feeling a little envious of all the people who got the chance to witness the whole thing live at the O2 Arena in London where the event was held. But thank goodness for the Internet, we can sort of be there with them while the entire gathering is going on. Click the GIFs to watch their performances.
5 Seconds of Summer performed sans Michael Clifford, because dude lost his passport so he couldn't fly to London. Boohoo! Although the cuties nailed their performance of "Don't Stop," "Good Girls," "Amnesia," and "She Looks So Perfect" we still kind of miss seeing one of our favorite guys rock it onstage.
The Vamps performed their very first track, "Can We Dance" for the crowd which got everyone bustin' the moves. Aside from singing the band's first song that somehow launched their careers, the cuties also did "Last Night" and "Somebody To You" for the #CapitalJBB crowd.
Showing off his amazing vocals that led him to secure 6 Grammy Awards 2015 nominations, Sam Smith performed his hits "Latch," "La La La," "I'm Not the Only One," and "Stay With Me." This is only getting us more excited for May next year when he's set to perform here in Manila for the first time ever!
Ed Sheeran sang crowd favorite, "Thinking Out Loud." Even though he didn't do his ballroom dance moves, Ed still managed to make the crowd do some dancing on their own when he sang "Don't" with a sample of "No Diggity" at the end. How cool is that, right? Aside from his tracks off the album, X, the Brit singer also sang "The A Team," "Lego House," and "Drunk" for the #CapitalJBB crowd. Crazy excited for March 2015!
Pop sensation Taylor Swift was also there to perform her latest track off 1989, "Blank Space." Girlfriend also did a kickass rendition of "I Knew You Were Trouble" which sent the audience in a frenzy that night. She closed the event with an explosive performance of "Shake It Off," which was the perfect track to end the night with, we think.
Which artists do you want to see perform live next year? Let us know in the comments or tweet us @candymagdotcom. We always love hearing from you. :)
