Top of the Pops

A musical review of 1990, the year that saw hip-hop and dance music hit the charts with a passion thanks to the likes of Adamski, Orbital, 808 State, Snap! and Eurodance sensations Snap! Betty Boo, Beats International and MC Tunes introduced the British take on hip-hop, Sinead O'Connor and Maria McKee took to the stage with big ballads and both John Barnes and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles showed their rapping skills. Milli Vanilli got caught up in a singing scandal, and the battle for the Christmas number one saw a stand-off between Cliff Richard and Vanilla Ice.
