Dermot O'Leary joined BBC Radio 2 in September 2004, presenting a Saturday afternoon show. Each week as part of the show Dermot invites a whole host of acts to perform live. These artists perform both covers and new renditions of their own tracks and these performances form the Saturday Sessions. The Saturday Sessions 2011
is packed full of live and acoustic performances from artists including Florence & The Machine, Jessie J, Plan B, Elbow, Noah and The Whale, Foster the People, Kasabian, Will Young, Adele and many more. It includes covers of classic tracks by Michael Jackson, Simon & Garfunkel, Paul Simon and Kate Bush, along with stripped back performances of current tracks.
