Top of the Pops, 18th July 2013

Pink and Lily Rose Cooper - True Love

Up 23 to number 36 - The show kicks off with the formidable figure of Pink, plus a blink-and-miss-it cameo from Lily to provide a counterpoint to the lusty belting. Sure to climb the chart again next week.

Lawson - Brokenhearted

In at number 6 - Lawson fill the screen with charm and verve. Few notice BOB's absence.

Katy B - What Love Is Made Of

In at number 21 - Time to get the crowd bouncing, as the duchess of dubstep makes sure her return is a triumphant one.

Sebastian Ingrosso ft Tommy Trash and John Martin - Reload

Highest New Entry - In at number 3 - No longer in the Swedish House Mafia but still in a trio of sorts, Mr Ingrosso brings his vocalist friends along to shake the joint.

Iggy Azalea - Bounce

In at number 13 - The bangers just keep on coming. A typically free-spirited performance here.

Ed Sheeran with Lily Rose Cooper - Everything Has Changed

Up 3 to number 12 - Taylor is busy this week, but Ed's available. The result: a true TOTP moment as Lily Rose Cooper is roped in to do Swift's bits, giving a fresh take on this touching duet. Public demand for a proper release of this version is to build over the next few weeks.

Sneakbo - Ring a Ling

In at number 27 - A bit of British rap amps up the crowd.

Robin Thicke ft TI and Pharrell - Blurred Lines

Up 1 to number 1 - As the man Nick Grimshaw once called "Ye Olde Thicko" climbs back to number 1, we have an opportunity to show you the video. Not the uncut version, though. And not the uncut cut version either - that's still a bit much for TOTP. Instead, we proudly present our own cleaned-up edit of the clean(er) edit, which basically boils down to three minutes of T.I. tapdancing - no bad thing.

PRESENTER: Kimberley Walsh
