The 'All About Tonight' singer and 'Glad You Came' boy band can't wait to perform at this weekend's O2 Arena event.

Pixie Lott and The Wanted have spoken about their excitement ahead of performing at the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball in London.

Both acts are scheduled to perform at the O2 Arena today (3rd December) as part of the Ball's day one line-up, alongside headliner Rihanna and other acts including Calvin Harris, Olly Murs, Jason Derulo and Labrinth.

"I love the Jingle Bell Ball, I always have such a great time," Pixie told Capital FM. "The crowd's always massive and amazing.

"I'm really excited because I haven't really sung live that many times. So it's going to be one of the first concerts where I'm singing the new material."

Pixie also said she is hoping to end up with a dressing room next to Rihanna because she's such a big fan of the 'We Found Love' singer.

'Lightning' boy band The Wanted say they're excited about their slot on the Jingle Bell Ball line-up because the event is always "so good".

"I really want to see Calvin Harris," band member Tom added. "His new song with Rihanna's awesome."

Fellow Ball performer Jason Derulo has also hyped his performance and said he is "absolutely" looking forward to singing because of the huge support Capital FM has given him since the start of his career.

The event continues on Sunday 4th December with a day two line-up of Jessie J, JLS, One Direction, The Saturdays, Ed Sheeran, Emeli Sande and Wretch 32.
