In front of a star-studded audience, and millions watching on BBC One, Ella Henderson and Sigma will open this year’s BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
Performing their summer smash hit Glitterball, drum and bass duo Sigma and pop sensation Ella will kick off the annual awards ceremony taking place this year at The SSE Arena in Belfast on Sunday December 20.
The Belfast-based Ulster Orchestra will also accompany the performance and provide music throughout the show.
Ella said: “We’re so looking forward to opening this year’s Sports Personality. It’s such an iconic show and myself and Sigma are honoured to be asked to perform – especially alongside such a wonderful orchestra. I can’t think of a better way to start Christmas.”
Sigma said: “We watch Sport Personality every year and 2015 has been an amazing one for sport. It’s a privilege to be asked to open the show and perform with Ella. We can’t wait to get over to Belfast and start the celebrations.”
BBC Sports Personality of the Year will be shown live on BBC One from 7pm on Sunday December 20.
