Bringing some of the biggest artists of the moment into their live lounge to perform their own songs as well as a cover of a well-known track, it’s a tradition that repeatedly pitches a few musical gems.

The big musical highlights on Live Lounge 2012 are Emeli Sandé performing Next To Me, Example covering Rihanna’s We Found Love, Paloma Faith with her take on Rudimental’s Feel The Love and Labrinth on Chris Brown’s Beautiful People.

The latest installment in the multi-million selling Live Lounge series, also features Usher, Conor Maynard, Lana Del Rey, Rita Ora, Plan B, Stooshe, Olly Murs, JLS, Jessie J and others performing stripped down versions of some of the biggest chart hits of the year.
