The elder revellers at V festival were so happy when Rick came out with Uptown Funk! Not necessarily because we were big fans back in the day, but simply because it was nice to have the company of somebody even older then we are. Well done Rick, you’re enjoying more limelight now than back in your heyday!

In the words of every X Factor judge there ever was, these guys “absolutely smashed it, made it their own, owned it……” ! Joking aside, the girl band were sensational, showing us just why they claimed the X Factor crown. Fans danced along to big hitters such as Hotline Bling, Crazy In Love and Black Magic.

Did Bjork ever do V Festival? Memories are hazy after so many years and so many drinks! Anyway, there is something of a Bjork/Gaga ish vibe to Sia’s sets. She is known for her theatrical performances with elaborate costumes but we should not let this put her talent in the shadows! After all she was the musical brains behind Rhianna’s Diamonds and Pretty Hurts sung by Beyonce.
