Top of the Pops, 30th March 2017

At one third Sheeran, one third Drake, the chart's looking more broken than ever. Luckily Top Of The Pops just about manages to put together a viable line-up and there's actually plenty to get excited about, even aside from this very historic period in singles chart terms.

Top billing has to go to man of the moment Drake, who appears to perform three of his twenty-two current hits. British rapper Giggs joins him to feature on two of those tracks. Also new is the massive friend of the show team-up from Clean Bandit and Zara Larsson, who never disappoint on the TOTP stage.

We also have transatlantic stars Ariana Grande and John Legend with a charming performance of the Beauty and the Beast theme, long-running hits from Anne-Marie, Bruno Mars and Martin Jensen, and the return of the slow burner from Julia Michaels. Captain Ed is still top; he plays Shape Of You on the banjo this week for a bit of variety.
