"So Stafford I was where you are. I'm from Birmingham - just down the road. I was getting drunk and being a bit naughty watching my favourite bands."

"Five years later, I'm still very sweaty and weird but up on stage performing to you."

Bradley Simpson, James McVey, Connor Ball, and Tristan Evans had the crowd going from start until finish.

Wearing casual clothes, they performed with a lively crowd in front of them and a black and white back drop that reads 'The Vamps'.

Two of their signature 'V's' were on either side of the MTV Stage.

To kick the show off they split the excited audience in half in a competition to be the loudest before performing Somebody to You.

The crowd went wild for an amazing cover of The Killers' Mr Brightside, and hands were thrown up in the air during hit songs Can We Dance and All Night.

With three studio albums, they played an array of music from all of them.

From the first studio album, they played popular hit Last Night along with songs Night and Day off their new album.

"Are you with me" before the chorus.

"I need to hear everybody. Jump jump jump.

"Out of the two festivals this crowd is a lot louder."

Bradley Simpson soon took to the piano to perform Middle of the Night from their new album.

Tristan Evans took over the microphone with some Welsh pride.

He said: "Put that Welsh flag back in the air"

"There's two get them up get them out. Make some noise for Wales."

They finished the performance with a thank you to the adoring fans who supported them through streaming and downloading.
