BBC One has a brand new primetime music show that doesn't take the form of a reality talent show! Sounds Like Friday Night will air on Fridays for six weeks at 7:30pm featuring a mix of sketches, chats and live performances. Greg James and Dotty will be presenting alongside a new guest host from the music world every week.

The first show sees Jason Derulo join the pair along with performances from Jessie Ware and Charlie Puth!

QUOTE
The show will launch in October and will broadcast live from the iconic BBC Television Centre in White City, the home of so many classic TV shows. The six programmes will be fronted by Radio 1 DJ and presenter Greg James with Radio 1 Xtra’s Dotty. Each week they will be sharing presenting duties with a different major music artist who will complete the hosting line up. The star host for programme one and the future episodes will be revealed nearer the time.

The artist host will be sprinkling their own stardust over proceedings and making every episode a complete one-off. As well as performing live, they will be joining in with the topical entertainment and fun sketches as well as presenting a smorgasbord of the very best in live music from other artists performing in that night’s show. Greg will be interviewing the bands and featuring alongside the lead hosts in sketches. Dotty will be chatting with the guests and the audience and curating the show’s interaction with viewers live on social media during each show, as well as getting out and about meeting music fans across the country.

Greg says: “We have been missing a primetime music show from our TV screens for far too long, so it’s fair to say being part of Sounds Like Friday Night is something I’m really, really excited about. One thing that’s fantastic about the show is being able to provide new and emerging acts a home alongside the megastars, introducing them to a new audience. Also having the opportunity to interview and have a laugh with some of the biggest stars in the world, on the actual telly, is completely brilliant. I can't wait to get going!”

Dotty says: “I’m thrilled to be part of Sounds Like Friday Night, it’s going to be an amazing show. Each week I’ll be meeting fellow music fans from around the UK, getting the lowdown from the viewers on social media and bringing the best music to you at home. I can’t wait!”

I can see this being slated, all light entertainment shows in the same vein do now unfortunately. It is nice to see the BBC at least giving a go at a music show, we need more of them for artists to promo/perform on. The only primetime slot (7-10pm imo) available now outside of the Saturday night reality shows is The One Show. drama.gif

The trailer is really bad though, they make it out as though Katy Perry and Beyonce are going to join them as guest hosts and then it ends up being Jason Derulo! laugh.gif

I'm quite enjoying it! It's not as informal as I expected and it does feel essentially like Top Of The Pops. Outdoing my expectations.

Oh I thought initially through reading the opening post that this sounded like the TOTP replacement that has been long talked about!

The acts weren't particularly to my taste but the performances were pretty good. The non-music parts were mostly naff.

Congratulations to Keele University SU who have gained a lot of publicity for an issue they seem to have with Jason Derulo.

I was expecting a bit more tbh, it seemed dry on content? But then it is only on for half an hour. There seemed no point in having a guest presenter though, only for the fact that they get two performances rather than one.

They need to do away with the sketches, they were so cringe :') It's nice to have some music on primetime though!

So that means there'll be four performers tomorrow, one more than last week! Hopefully that means there'll be less/no sketches.

I was wondering about that - I'm guessing Mabel is a last minute addition, because she definitely wasn't there when the list of performers for Episode 2 were first revealed, and this was done as a result of complaints about the sketches.

Demi Lovato is the co-presenter for Episode 3 as well as performing two songs. Plan B and Loyle Carner will also perform.

5 performances in total tonight then with two brief sketches! Definitely works better from a music perspective but I do think it might benefit from another 10/15 minutes or so but obviously that isn’t possible for the TV schedule!

Really enjoyed tonight’s episode. Definitely a lot faster paced and more jam-packed. The fake music genre sketch actually made me laugh as well unlike the sketches last week
