"It's kind of kicking off," said Radio 1's Matt Edmondson, half an hour into his preamble to the annual Teen Awards that had already seemed to last for three days. "This is amazing, there are pop stars literally everywhere," panted his co-presenter Jameela Jamil, as if she had just clapped eyes on the Virgin Mary and not Jade from Little Mix.

Rock: The artist still known as a genius

Tell someone you've been to see the Artist Formerly Known As Prince, and their first question is: did he play the hits (ie, the songs he wrote when he was Still Known As Prince)? The answer is that he played far, far more of them than anyone predicted. The last time he visited Wembley Arena, three years ago, his funk jams lasted several days each, and while he did include one or two songs of the non-funky variety, they were all unreleased and unknown. It was not a singalong evening.

Pop Live: Lisa Stansfield Wembley Arena

Lisa Stansfield may have reigned as Britain's soul queenie in the early Nineties, but in recent years she's kept pretty quiet. That may possibly have something to do with 1993's So Natural album: the multi-million-selling Rochdale diva suffered a drop in fortunes after its release, and in the four years since, she and her fiance/song-writing partner Ian Devaney have been tucked away in Ireland.

Equestrianism: Sagrat carries Goosen to puissance victory

Guy Goosen and Sagrat made a stylish leap over a 7ft wall at The Horse of the Year Show last night, when the Briton became the outright winner of the Ikon Office Solutions Puissance. Goosen defeated the Belgian rider Francois Mathy, whose Plantero took a chunk out of the wall in the same round. Sagrat, who won his first puissance here at Wembley Arena two years ago, made it look easy. The horse has won 10 such contests, including the one at Olympia last year when he cleared 7ft 5in.
