    Trivia (7)

    • R.E.M. cover Munich by The Editors.

    • This week the show was filmed in the Brixton Academy.

    • The first time Sam Sparro has performed the song Black & Gold on tv.

    • Estelle covers She's So Lovely by Scouting for Girls.

    • Nick is the main host of todays episode, beforehand whilst talking to Switch presenter Flash Louie, he talks about wrecking the show because of him bleaching his hair halfway through the week. This is made apparent with the only feature, which also stars co-host Annie Mac as here he still has brown hair. (Also proving in turn that the game played with the Kaiser Chief's was pre-recorded earlier in the week).

    • The format has completely changed from the last series, with just one musical guest in a permanent studio. Their's not as much music featured within each episode as the first series either.
