MSN exclusive: Olly Murs performs live!

X Factor favourite Olly Murs performs three tracks from his second album, In Case You Didn't Know, exclusively for MSN Music…


We've been fans of cheeky chappy Olly Murs since his first X Factor audition, so it was a no-brainer when we were asked if we'd like to film an acoustic session with him.

Recorded at the Gibson Rooms in Central London, Olly performed three tracks from his forthcoming second album; Heart Skips A Beat, new single Dance With Me Tonight (out on Monday), and the album's title track, In Case You Didn't Know.

Off camera nugget:
Olly and his crew turned up early (which is pretty much unheard of in music industry circles), so they had to hang about while we set up our camera equipment.

Olly spotted an acoustic guitar lying around and immediately started strumming the Ben E. King classic, Stand By Me.

He seemed fixated on that particular song and must have sung it half a dozen times in the half hour before we were ready to start filming.

It was only when he launched into his latest single Dance With Me Tonight that we realised it's got the same opening chords.

It seems Olly gets his inspiration from the best!
