There have been some brilliant live performances throughout the year, but these five have really stuck with us for some time...

5) Rihanna, Kanye West & Paul McCartney - 'FourFiveSeconds'

The Grammys 2015 had a whole host of exciting performances, but none were more memorable than the incredible teaming up of Rihanna, Kanye West and Paul McCartney. The unlikely trio put their brilliance and minds together to come up with something special, and the audience and viewers at home couldn't have been more thankful.

4) Ariana Grande - 'Problem'

She's one of the most talented vocalists of the modern generation, and so it was a real delight for the ears when Ariana Grande stepped out on stage at this year's Capital Summertime Ball. If anyone has ever doubted her pipes, this live performance should put them to rest.

3) Adele - 'Water Under The Bridge'

Adele took to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon earlier this year, performing to promote her new record-breaking album '25'. The emotionally-charged 'Water Under the Bridge' was her song of choice with Fallon, and she managed to captivate audiences across the globe with her beautiful vocal talent.

2) Lady Gaga - Sound of Music Medley

Gaga is a woman who's constantly shocking audiences, and she continued to do so when she took to the Oscars stage to perform a medley of songs from The Sound of Music to celebrate its anniversary. Following the performance, she was congratulated by none other than Dame Julie Andrews, topping off a perfect display.

1) Katy Perry - Super Bowl 2015

There were a lot of people wondering if Katy would be able to step up to the plate at the Super Bowl in mid 2015, but the pop sensation managed to prove to everybody exactly why she's one of the best-selling artists of our time. Joined by Lenny Kravitz and Missy Elliott, this was the arguably the best show of the year with some of the most exciting stage and set production to come to the Super Bowl.
