After a heartfelt introduction from Radio 1 DJ Chris Moyles Annie performed ‘Why’ live with the orchestra and house band which received a huge ovation from the audience. Other acts to perform included Leona Lewis, Lily Allen, Mika, Muse, Dizzee Rascal, Take That, Robbie Williams, Dame Shirley Bassey, Paul McCartney, Cheryl Cole, Snow Patrol and Katherine Jenkins, many of whom performed unique duets.
