Top of the Pops, 16th June 2016

First let's address the elephant in the room: Justin Timberlake has the second biggest song of the summer so far but he's only been on the show once. This is because he's been stuck at number 2 behind One Dance, and if you don't climb the chart, you don't get on the show. He needs to either overhaul Drake or start yo-yoing a bit if he wants to be featured.

So who do we have? After six agonising weeks away, friend of the show Zara Larsson is back and she is all over this edition. We open the show with a medley of Lush Life and her new David Guetta track This One's For You, before she joins Tinie Tempah on their long runner Girls Like. Then she's back near the end to fill in Drake's vocals on a unique but strangely lovely version of the new DJ Khaled hit For Free.

Drake manages a double absence, since he's once again not here to perform One Dance either - instead featured vocalist Kyla teams up with Tinie Tempah for a unique and exclusive British take. The line-up is rounded out with chart movers from Kungs, OneRepublic and Calum Scott, and a show-stopper from the universally loved Adele.

Debuts: DJ Khaled.
