The 'Down With The Trumpets' stars covered the festive hit 'Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town' for their set.

Rizzle Kicks brought some festive spirit to the Jingle Bell Ball this evening (8th December) by including a Christmas classic in their setlist for the Capital FM event.

The 'Traveller's Chant' duo arrived on stage to a huge reception from the 16,000 strong O2 Arena audience and kicked off their set with a performance of 'When I Was A Youngster'.

Jordan Stephens and Harley Alexander-Sule brought their infectious enthusiasm with the former even performing a backwards flip to get the crowd cheering and up on their feet.

"Are you guys feeling good? You guys are the best!" Jordan told the audience, while wearing a white vest and blue jeans for the duo's set.

Jordan's bandmate Harley instead opted for a red and white raglan top, as they asked the crowd: "Are you excited about Christmas?"

Rizzle Kicks then opted to perform a surprise cover of the festive classic 'Santa Claus Is Coming To Town', putting their own rap-oriented spin on the Christmas favourite.

"O2! Would you like to get down with the trumpets with us tonight?!" Jordan later asked, before breaking into one of their biggest hits, 'Down With The Trumpets'.

The hip-hop duo ended with a roof-raising performance of their huge Big Top 40 hit 'Mama Do The Hump', leading the area crowd through a back and forth chant of the song's chorus to round off their set.
