The 'Chasing the Sun' five-piece are warming up for their performance at London's O2 Arena.

The Wanted are preparing to wow the crowds with their performance on day two of the Jingle Bell Ball as they soundcheck on stage.

The 'I Found You' stars took over the stage at London's O2 Arena, complete with a live band ready to entertain the expected 16,000 people at this evening's performance.

The boys were on good form despite jetting in from New York late last night (9th December).

"SO excited for @CapialOfficial #JBB tonight!!" band member Nathan Sykes posted this morning. "Nearly at the O2 and ready to end the year with a bang!!" 

Check out a picture of Nathan Sykes preparing for his upcoming Ball performance on stage in New York last week:

Pink, Girls Aloud, Conor Maynard, Rita Ora, Calvin Harris and Example will all be on stage at the O2 Arena for night two.
