Mystery Jets poked fun at Newton Faulkner during their set on the Red Bull Bedroom Jam Futures Stage at T In The Park today (July 10), with Kate Nash and Diana Vickers among the other acts playing.

After playing a rousing rendition of 'Two Doors Down', singer Blaine Harrison asked the audience who they'd seen during the festival so far, drawing huge cheers when he mentioned the likes of The Courteeners and Example, but boos for Faulkner. Noting the audience's reaction, the singer coyly stated: "Well you've obviously all got good taste then," before launching into a well-received version of acoustic favourite 'Behind The Bunhouse'.

Earlier in the day several members of the band had watched Kate Nash from the side of the King Tut's Wah Wah Stage, during a set in which she made an appeal to any budding female musicians in the audience. "Statistically, there are less female composers than male," she said, repeating a speech she gave at Glastonbury. "So girls, if you want to write music, just do it."

During 'Model Behaviour', she leaped from the stage to run up and down the photo pit, before ending on 'Pumpkin Soup', the last notes of which were bashed out with her feet whilst stood atop the piano.

Diana Vickers also played a well-received set on the stage today. Wearing a flared red jumpsuit, the former X Factor contestant showcased her 2010 album 'Songs From The Tainted Cherry Tree', airing tracks including 'Once' and 'The Boy Who Murdered Love'. She went down well with the audience, though a couple of punters threw glasses onstage early on in her pop-friendly performance. However, the vast majority were supportive, and Vickers ended her highly-charged performance by wishing revellers a good weekend and encouraging them to "have lots to drink".

The Black Keys managed to defy the downpour that has soaked the Balado site today, drawing a strong crowd to the outdoor NME/Radio 1 Stage for their mid-afternoon slot. The band sped through their set with little between-song banter, though the crowd didn't seem to mind and responded particularly well to the likes of '10am Automatic' and 'Your Touch'.

Meanwhile, local heroes Frightened Rabbit played to a packed, ecstatic crowd at their early evening slot at the King Tut's Wah Wah Tent, opening with 'The Modern Leper' and also playing impassioned versions of 'Good Arms' and 'Living In Colour'. Frontman Scott Hutchison told the crowd it was the band's "best day ever", before conducting a mass singalong to 'Keep Yourself Warm'.
