Top of the Pops, 27th March 2014

There are a ton of new entries this week, including Duke Dumont returning to the top spot and Little Mix bouncing around the top ten with their charity single. From the Vault comes into its own as enough Aberdonians buy Don't You Want Me to send the Human League into the top 20, so we dig up a classic performance from the stylish Sheffielders. Other delights in the varied bag of newies include London Grammar, Paolo Nutinin and big-in-the-US singer, Trey Songz.

Top of the Pops, 20th March 2014

We see big comebacks from three female solo artists this week: Kylie Minogue, Pixie Lott and the singer-songwriter-type Christina Perri. John Legend continues his slow, sentimental chart climb, and there is a bouncing return from One Direction as their AC/DC-style rocker pops back into the top 40. The novelty genre is also strongly represented by the Chainsmokers and Flo Rida, while friend of the show Tinie Tempah (and some trolls hunched over Korgs) crash in at the top.

Top of the Pops, 6th March 2014

It's Pharrell's week once again. Not only is the impish hat-donner now on a near-unprecedented third run at number one with a song newly anointed as a million-seller, he's also the ten-gallon musical brain behind Paloma Faith's new top ten entry; he duly larks around in the background of Paloma's performance before inviting her to join his own. New to TOTP this week are John Legend and American Authors, and international diva Beyonce drops by (with another sparkly dress) as her Brits-performed track rises another place.
