[tweetmeme source= “blurayreporter” only_single=false]

The UK’s most popular boy band versus the world’s greatest R’n’B diva. We wouldn’t want to call the winner of this sing off, but luckily fans of JLS and Beyoncé won’t have to, as both acts release their live 2010 tour’s on Blu-ray Disc from December 6th.

As one of the year’s biggest UK music acts, JLS have successfully made the journey from talent show hopefuls to bonafide pop stars in just two short years. ‘Only Tonight’ showcases the boy’s first headline tour, playing to over 60,000 fans across 24 venues. Aston, Marvin, JB and Oritsé send the crowd into a spin with a staggering array of dance routines and perfectly polished performances. Extra features exclusive to the BD include ‘Backstage with JLS’, videos of the band’s top hits and a ‘JLS Cam’ allowing fans to follow their favourite member through the show’s stand-out performances.

Alternatively, for all those partial to a bit of booty-shaking, Beyoncé offers up a feast for the eyes and ears as  her ‘I Am Sasha Fierce: World Tour’ comes to BD. With 108 shows across six continents and a combined audience of 1.1 million, this incredible film captures fantastic footage from numerous performances edited into one extraordinary concert. Giving viewers a rare glimpse into the personal world of the multi-faceted icon, Beyoncé fans around the world can now relive her unforgettable performances once more in HD.

So if you’re looking to escape from the cold for a few hours or get in the mood for a party, why not try ‘Only Tonight’ or ‘I Am Sasha Fierce’ and celebrate the best of 2010’s live music.
