With Fearne Cotton returning to Radio 1 this week, the wonderful Ellie Goulding kicked off a month of Live Lounges with these two incredible tracks. Stripped back and reworked, she performed her triple number one single (yes, triple!) "Burn" and followed it with a perfect cover of Justin Timberlake's "Mirrors". Of course I'm going to be biased – what fan wouldn't be – but this lady can simply do no wrong, her voice just smashes anything it touches and these acoustic versions really puts that in the spotlight.

This was to be only part one of her day at BBC Radio 1, set to perform an extended live session in the evening for Zane Lowe from the very special Maida Vale Studios, as the radio station embarks on a month of "Even More Music" with a feast of events and promotions to celebrate music and reboot the industry's calendar. Oh and I was there at Maida Vale...
