16:14 - LET THE BALL COMMENCE! The Wanted have opened the show in spectacular style with 'All Time Low' - but there's no Nathan to be seen.
Following throat surgery earlier this year, it's been touch and go as to whether Nathan would be able to perform at the Ball. He told Capital FM earlier in the week that he was taking each day as it comes.
16:10 - You bring the energy, we'll bring the giant balloons...
16:04 - PSY might prepare with a power nap, but the Loveable Rogues decided to take full advantage of the backstage spa!

15:51 - There's under ten minutes to go! Capital's very own Marvin Humes has taken to the DJ booth - headphones on, mic in hand, getting the crowd ready for what's going to be the best night of the summer. Here or at home, put your hands in the air and prepare...
15:48 - Power nap worked. PSY's UP. HE'S READY. LET'S GO.

15:16 - Some of the biggest names in pop are all here under one roof, we've got Taylor Swift, Justin Timberlake, Will.i.am... And it's not just you guys that are waiting in the crowd and tuning in from home that are excited to see them. We've been catching up with Union J to find out who they are most looking forward to seeing perform...
15:11 - There's under one hour to go until the best acts in pop take over Wembley. Olly's on the way, The Saturday's are on the hunt for Justin Timberlake and Lawson are up to mischief in their dressing room...
