Glam pop group, Scissor Sisters will be taking centre stage as they host their own music special for ITV2.

One Night Stand with the Scissor Sisters will feature exclusive specially recorded performances live in front of a studio audience. Viewers will have front row seats as the flamboyant, chart topping band perform their biggest hits on this unique and intimate platform.

The music specials entitled One Night Stand is a brand new format for ITV2 which showcases some the world’s biggest music talents and feature exclusive specially recorded performances.

Scissor Sisters, known for their outrageous staging at concerts will perform some of their classic hits including I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’, Laura, Take Your Mama and Mary as well as some of their newer tracks from their recent album Night Work including Fire with Fire, Any Which Way and Invisible Lights where they were joined for a one off exclusive collaboration with Sir Ian McKellen.

Ana Matronic said: “It was amazing, it was so much fun. I’m on such a high from having Sir Ian McKellen coming out on stage. It was a real moment for me, there are moments when I can’t believe what I do for a living, this is one of those moments, I get to pinch myself.”

Jake Shears added: “My favourite moment was singing ‘Mary’, it’s a really special song for me. It’s really hard to sing it without getting choked up. I enjoyed singing it tonight.”

Babydaddy agreed: “That was amazing, really, really good I’m really happy. The crowd was incredible, it was really fun tonight. We will probably never perform Invisible Light with Sir Ian McKellen again, that was really special.”

Their first, entitled Scissor Sisters, was the best selling album of 2004 in the UK and featured singles Comfortably Numb, Laura and Take Your Mama. This was followed up with their second album Ta-Dah which spawned the single I Don’t Feel Like Dancing. Having collaborated with other artists including Kylie Minogue and the Pet Shop Boys, the group are well known for their outrageous stagings at their performances.
