Top of the Pops, 14th January 2016

After teasing us for a couple of months, Justin Bieber conquers a chart summit that many thought might never be reached: numbers 1, 2 and 3 in the chart at the same time. He duly appears with a combined performance of all three (bending the TOTP appearance rules a little as it is a historic occasion). Elsewhere, as often, the January chart is a bit of a shuffle-about. Years & Years get their chance to shine, as do various other dance-minded people.

A bit more star power: Brandy is in the building to supply live vocals for 99 Souls' track, so she gamely helps out Sigala with their Jackson 5 sample too. It's a bit of a moment. Chart impact comes from the debuting Snakehips, and a memorial Motorhead chart entry for the recently departed Lemmy.
