The 'Fight For You' star says he cannot wait to perform at Capital FM's festive showcase.

Jason Derulo has said he is "absolutely" looking forward to performing at this year’s Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball.

The R&B singer made the comments backstage at the MTV Europe Music Awards this weekend in Belfast, where he performing his hit singles 'It Girl' and 'In My Head'.

 "I mean Capital FM, you guys have been supporting me from the very, very beginning man," Derulo told Capital FM’s showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes.

"So much love to you guys and I’m looking forward to coming over there and rocking."

Derulo had high praise for fellow artist Lady Gaga, who came away with four MTV awards last night, sending "big congratulations" to the singer and her team.

Last week Derulo was announced as part of the first day line-up of the Jingle Bell Ball alongside headliner Rihanna on a bill also including The Wanted, Calvin Harris and Olly Murs.

Derulo will release 'Fight For You', the third single from his second album Future History, on 27th November.
