The 'Glad You Came' singers put the London crowd into a frenzy during a stand out set at the O2 Arena.
The Wanted returned to Capital FM's Jingle Bell Ball this evening (3rd December) for a triumphant performance of their biggest singles to date.
The 'Warzone' singers made a grand entrance into London's O2 Arena by wading their way through the frenzied crowd before taking to the stage.
Max, Tom, Jay, Siva and Nathan shook hands, hugged and kissed their adoring fans and then kicked off with opener 'Lose My Mind'.
The five-piece boy band then thrilled the sold-out arena with recent hit 'Lightning', complete with on-stage pyrotechnics, before taking up musical instruments for a rendition of 2010 'Heart Vacancy'.
The Wanted followed that up with 'Gold Forever', the first single from their second album 'Battleground', which soon got fans singing along with the words.
After teasing their return to the O2 Arena in 2012 for their new UK tour, the boys took positions in a circle ready for their next release 'Warzone', a performance which saw the five boys lifted up above the audience on a rotating platform.
"The next one we're going to do for you is thanks to you guys that it spend two weeks at number one in the summer," The Wanted's Tom said. "So thanks for all the support. Sing along if you know it. Who's glad they came?"
The crowd all got to their feet for recent single 'Glad You Came', during which gold streamers were fired into the crowd, before the band introduced their final song of the evening.
"I think before we do go we'll take a little trip down memory lane," Jay teased. "The first song we ever released amazingly went to number one.
"To anyone that bought that single, it started what's been an incredibly crazy journey for us."
The Wanted performed their debut single 'All Time Low', originally release back in July 2010, as the last song of their set before waving goodbye to the Jingle Bell Ball crowd.
