The Playlist is a British children's entertainment and music series presented by guest presenters, produced by Strawberry Blond TV for CBBC and first aired on 22 April 2017. The first series was narrated by Scott Mills. Each week the show has a different presenter with Greg James, Dev, MistaJam or Jordan North presenting the UK Singles Chart Top 10 segment and features various co-presenters since its 16th episode. The first presenters were Pixie Lott and Anton Powers. It is a replacement for the CBBC Official Chart Show, which ended in February 2017.

Format

Each week, on the CBBC website, there are ten different songs, and the user has three votes. They can be used all on one song, or they can vote for two or three songs. In the weeks leading up to more recent episodes, users only have one vote, therefore making it harder to choose. The three songs with the most votes are played on The Playlist. The user can also comment on songs and why they voted for them, either by uploading a short video, uploading a selfie or by leaving a comment on the CBBC website. The comments, as well as facts about the artist/artists, are displayed whilst a song is being played. Each week, BBC Radio 1 DJ Greg James, Dev or Jordan North also presents the UK Singles Chart Top 10, whilst playing short extracts from each song. In between these main segments, there are also games, and chats with the hosts.

Since series 2, the celebrity host chooses their three tracks.

Production

After the CBBC Official Chart Show ended in February 2017 after almost two years and 69 episodes, it was announced that the executive producer of the CBBC Official Chart Show was setting up his own independent production company, Strawberry Blond TV and CBBC was expected to return to the live music genre.[1]

According to Broadcast magazine, The Playlist was to be incorporated into CBBC's new live Saturday morning TV series Saturday Mash-Up!, which was to begin in September 2017.[2]
