Including a Wham! cover...

The xx dropped by Radio 1's Live Lounge this morning (December 17th) and performed a cover of the Wham! festive classic 'Last Christmas'.

Live Lounge is a Radio 1 tradition. Over the years countless acts have dropped past the studio, often delighting fans with unusual takes on familiar classics.

Asked to take part, The xx worked up something special. Fresh from the release of 'Coexist' the band's live show has been perfected with a select handful of live shows, including a one off performance with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra. Performing lead track 'Chained' the band then followed this with a festive cover.

Rolling through 'Last Christmas' by Wham! the group were able to find their own space within the perennial karaoke favourite.
