Roxie and P!nk are kicking off the show tonight with a song from her latest album!

P!nk
Are We All We Are
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GWqmRGnqYpw
Note from Roxie:
This song is from her latest album. People have this misconception that God or someone else will still sort out our problems for us. In this, shes saying were better than that, our problems are our own and its our job to make sure we do it ourselves! But, at the same time, its about teamwork as well, about how sometimes we think we can deal with problems alone but actually its always better if we have a helping hand. Anyone can relate to this song because weve all faced a crisis at some point in our lives and have needed the strength and support of other people. This song basically inspires us to sort out our own problems but to take help when needed.

Jack and Imagine Dragons are next with a family inspired song!

Imagine Dragons
Amsterdam
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKtPXO5iEnA
Note from Jack:
The song is about Dan (the lead singer) apologising to his family for everything wrong he's done in the past.

Alex and FrankMusik are the next to hit the NTA stage!

FrankMusik
You Are Here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udMIrTtaa4U#t=0m19s
Note from Alex
: This song is one of the first FrankMusik wrote for his new album. It was influenced by his decision to leave his record label behind in the US, come back to the UK, and start making his own music the way he wanted to. This song represents a big change in his career, his sound, and his life

Here is Gav and The Strokes, with a song accompanied by a VERY long note

The Strokes
12:51
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPAVDHo1Elc
Note from Gav
: The Strokes have 5 members, all with different music tastes and this song in particular is an amalgamation of a lot of them. The most obvious, direct influence is of Sonic Youth - Julian pretty much admitted a lot of the song is immediately influenced by the awesome song Bull In The Heather (which you should check out, because it's amaze if you don't know it). There are a lot of other influences in there, I think the whole clash of guitars meets synths kind of makes this song super interesting - there's a definite Cyndi Lauper neon 80s thing involved there, the band have also talked a lot about the influences of bands like Talking Heads,The Velvet Underground and Blondie - I think this record has a particularly 80s-influenced vibe that showcases them all whilst still definitively sounding like a Strokes record.

Aliyah and Bastille are next, who are my favourite right now because of Aliyah's amaze commenting <3

Bastille
Laura Palmer
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQnSc0bczg0
Note from Aliyah:
The track is immersed in inspiration from the show Twin Peaks where Laura's character is murdered at homecoming. This song is basically a reflection of Bastille frontman Dan Smith's fascination of the character and attempt to 'give life' to the character by telling her story in the song.

Kicking off Anthems, it's Roxie and P!nk, with one of P!nk's most famous songs!

P!nk
Family Portrait
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x0mcG2_p8Q
Note from Roxie:
This song is an anthem for everyone with any sort of family/parent problems as the lyrics as it expresses exactly what they feel scared, betrayed, heartbroken. Its a song which can touch anyones heart
