The comeback king put on a live show to remember at this year's Jingle Bell Ball!
James Arthur is no stranger to performing on massive stages and you could tell, as his performance at Capital's Jingle Bell Ball with Coca-Cola was a breathtaking spectacle.
Setting the show off to an impressive start, James kicked off with a huge acoustic sing-a-long to his latest smash hit 'Say You Won't Let Go', proving exactly why the song dominated the top of the chart for weeks earlier this year.
Looking sharp on stage dressed in his smart attire, James continued his emotionally charged set by performing his X Factor winner's single 'Impossible', reminding everyone why he was crowned as the show's champion back in 2012.
One of the biggest moments of his set however, was when he dropped a super special special cover of Ariana Grande's smash hit 'Into You' telling the crowd "I hope she sees this and then slides into the DMs!". Plus he even mixed a bit of R Kelly's classic 'Ignition' in there too - what a guy.
Talk about a vocal talent!
Ahead of his performance, James was looking seriously dapper on our red carpet dressed in a dapper navy jacket and dark t shirt:
He also played a brilliant game of Jingle Bell Bantz with our very own Roman Kemp backstage:
The crowd were so buzzed by James' mindblowing performance that they leapt onto Twitter to shout about it from the rooftops:
