Supergroup McBusted finally gave their eager fans a taste of what to expect from their forthcoming tour when they officially performed for the first time together on Children in Need.
The four members of McFly, Danny Jones, Tom Fletcher, Dougie Poynter and Harry Judd, began by singing the their hit It’s All About You before Busted’s James Bourne and Matt Willis joined them on stage to sing Year 3000.
True to their promise of playing songs by both bands, the quintet then performed Busted’s 2004 single Airhostess before closing with McFly’s Shine a Light.
“Amazing day, amazing night and amazing fans,” said 27-year-old Danny on Twitter.” I salute you x #McBusted.”
“WELL WHAT A DAY!” added Matt. “Great Britain! I LOVE YOU xxx”
McBusted’s performance helped Children in Need raise a record £31 million for disadvantaged children and young adults in the UK.
Friday’s staggering on-the-night sum of £31,124,896 surpassed last year’s total which stood at £26 million.
