Top of the Pops, 11th July 2013

Ke$ha and Will.I.Am - Crazy Kids

High Climber - Up 8 to number 27 - It's been in the chart for a couple of weeks, but only just started making waves. Will and Ke$ha both make the trip to kick off the show with an energetic, hip-swivelling performance.

The Saturdays - Gentleman

In at number 14 - First appearance on the new TOTP for the Saturdays. The girls have a lot of fun with five sharp-suited male dancers.

Gabz - Lighters (The One)

In at number 6 - The former Britain's Got Talent contestant marks her arrival as a proper chart star with an impressive top ten entry.

Mumford and Sons - I Will Wait

Re-entry at number 31 - This week's biggest Glastonbury sales boost is enough to put the nation's favourite scruffcore roustabouts back in the top 40. A TOTP appearance makes a fun counterpart to their main-stage heroics last weekend.

Russ Chimes - Turn Me Out

In at number 40 - The second new face of the week is Russ Chimes, looking for a boost to send him further up the top 40 next week. Lots of dancers and lights here.

From the Vault: Robin S - Show Me Love

Re-entry at number 49 - It's actually the Steve Angello version that's re-entered the lower reaches of the chart, but that's still a great reason to show this fine original performance from way back in 1993.

Coldplay - Viva la Vida

Re-entry at number 45 - This can't be a From the Vault slot because Viva la Vida came too late to be on the original TOTP, but the band come on the show now to put that right. Quite a moment; Chris Martin looks thrilled to be here.

John Newman - Love Me Again

Straight in at number 1 - He was on last week with Rudimental, and here is the man of the moment again with a number 1 smash in his own right.

PRESENTER: Kimberley Walsh
