Going to impact the number of songs then. Guessing two songs per act coming in at around an hour and an hour’s chat in between stage set up etc.

I'd forgotten how Snow Patrol songs don't really go anywhere.... looks like they're only getting one

I'm still hoping the Manics are going to perform a one off version or Revol changing the lyrics to be about Putin... not expecting to get it though.

I’m half expecting a cover… dunno… the obvious three songs seem almost too obvious to play.

The soundcheck as posted on the fdforum twitter has already given the game away and it was always the obvious choice.

The Starcaster bass is a beauty.

Why no live performance?

Shame they were singing over a backing track (I say that as the current live version - especially the outro has been honed to perfection) but that was a particular touching performance.

I kept one eye on Twitter throughout the performance, half expecting it to be full of people accusing them of being dinosaurs, etc. The general consensus was that they'd done brilliant with the most apt song possible.

Yeah the backing track was a bit frustrating but maybe the live version would’ve been a bit much in its guise these days, especially the outro.

Agree it was a lovely performance though.

Ed Sheeran’s performance is why they didn’t play live. Sean messed with his guitar.

My view is if it was on the BBC we'd have the full live sound. But ITV (and more importantly the advertisers using ITV) probably dictated more of what we heard.
Another reason to support the licence fee!
Do hope the song re-enters the charts as well.
