The 'I Lived' band chat to us ahead of their HUGE set this weekend at the Ball.

OneRepublic are VERY excited to play the Capital Jingle Bell Ball 2014 with Morrisons today (6th December) and…. they REALLY want to catch up with fellow JBB performer Sam Smith this weekend!

The 'Love Runs Out' five-piece will be hitting that O2 Arena stage today to give a hit-filled performance to the 16,000 super-fans heading to our #CapitalJBB party.

"We're stoked to play the Ball," OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder told Capital's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes. "The O2 is hands down the top two or three gigs we've done in our lives so getting to do this again within the same year is like winning the lottery. We're stoked."

PLUS… Ryan Tedder's hoping he gets to catch up with fellow #CapitalJBB performers Sam Smith during their stay in London this weekend, here's hoping for a team-up down the line!

"We've been speaking and tweeting since his album came out and he's a sweetheart of a guy. And he's a bit of a foodie too!" Ryan added. "So I'm excited to hear him sing and then maybe we go grab some sushi or what-not!"

The Capital Jingle Bell Ball 2014 with Morrisons kicks off today with a day one line-up featuring stars like Olly Murs, OneRepublic, The Vamps, Union J and Take That.
