Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012 Highlights
Over 80,000 people were treated to an amazing concert at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 9 June, featuring performances from some of the biggest names in music.
Coldplay kicked off proceedings with a rocking set of songs including their huge hit Paradise which was followed by a collection of stellar performances from world famous acts Kelly Clarkson, Flo Rida and Pitbull, as well as home-grown UK talent Example.
For the first time ever, the show boasted a ‘Breakers’ section, which saw performances from some of music’s hottest new names such as Lawson, Cover Drive and Conor Maynard.
US superstar Usher went on to delight fans with renditions of old and new hits such as Climax, Scream and Burn. Then the flow of great acts continued, with Rita Ora taking to the stage, followed by surprise appearances from Dizzee Rascal and Cheryl Cole.
The Wanted, Jessie J and Ed Sheeran kept the atmosphere electric with performances of some of their huge hits such as Glad You Came, Domino and A-Team. But hysteria really set in when Justin Bieber sang and danced his way through a spectacular set (see below for his performance of Die in Your Arms), as well introducing another special guest performer; Carly Rae Jepsen.
The party was bought to an electric close with a set from Katy Perry, who ended the show with an array of her biggest hits.
In between performing, Ed Sheeran presented a cheque from the proceeds of the event to children from the Teenage Cancer Trust – one of many charities that Help A Capital Child supports throughout the UK.
