BBC Children in Need Pop Goes the Musical – Thriller Live with Joe McElderry


X Factor winner, singer & songwriter Joe McElderry and Pudsey Bear

Hi all,

Joe here, I just wanted to tell you a bit about my upcoming appearance in BBC Children in Need’s Pop Goes the Musical on the 15th of November. I will be performing in Thriller Live with the US superstar Macy Gray and one of the UK’s best new girl-groups Stooshe.

Since X Factor I have been on many stages and performed a whole catalogue of songs, but performing in Thriller Live is really an exciting once in a lifetime experience. I am lucky enough to have performed in some of the UK’s most famous venues, from doing the X Factor Tour to performing on my Classic at The Royal Festival Hall. That being said the West End isn’t something I’ve ventured into yet, but I’m thrilled to be involved!

As I’m performing in Thriller Live I have to talk about Michael Jackson. I am not a stranger to performing other people’s material, but when it comes to ‘The Prince of Pop’ it is hard not to feel the extra expectation! I can’t tell you what I’m singing yet, but I’m really happy with the choice!

Lastly I’d like to ask you all to donate what you can to BBC Children in Need. One of the ways in which you can is by coming along to see me, Macy Gray and Stooshe performing in Thriller Live! Grab a ticket at It feels fantastic to be able to lend my support to such a great cause.

Hopefully I’ll see some of you there on the 15th November!
