Top of the Pops, 1st August 2013

Not many new entries this week, which means a lot of climbers and the chance for a few long-lived hits to get their turn on the show. Look out for a surprise duet near the end!

One Direction - Best Song Ever

Highest New Entry - In at number 2 - And what better way to kick off any episode of Top of the Pops than with everybody's favourite five eager beavers, jigging about to the general delight of the studio audience.

Demi Lovato - Heart Attack

Up 3 to number 33 - No, she wasn't on last week, that was Selena Gomez. Another polished performance from another pristine popstrel. And a great light show.

Rudimental ft. Ella Eyre - Waiting All Night

Up 9 to number 25 - Not the first time on for Rudimental but a TOTP debut for the talented Ella Eyre. The singer is front and centre in this performance, clouds of dry ice obscuring the Rude boys as they skulk in the shadows.

Arctic Monkeys - Do I Wanna Know?

Up 3 to number 18 - This uncharacteristically enduring Arctics hit gets a second airing as it climbs back into the top 20. The boys are happy to come on again, turning up the intensity for the second pound through.

Fuse ODG - Antenna

Up 2 to number 22 - And another returning face to restore the party vibe. With four female dancers wearing antennae this time around.

From the Vault: Toploader - Dancing in the Moonlight

Up 36 to number 27 - A huge leap up the chart for this pukka classic sends our tape delvers deep into the archive to retrieve this footage from the year 2000.

Ed Sheeran with Demi Lovato - Everything Has Changed

Up 1 to number 12 - Taylor is out of the country again, so who better to fill in than the versatile Demi Lovato? She and Ed have great chemistry, making eyes at each other throughout this fun reinterpretation.

Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc - Wake Me Up

Second week at number 1 - The euroDJ and his soulful pal return for a second performance, and this time Aloe Blacc wears a top hat, an enormous fur coat and white loafers. You've changed, Aloe.

PRESENTER: James Masterton
