'I think the line-up reflects what's happening in the music world at the moment - there aren't a lot of new rock acts to choose from, if I'm honest,' she told BBC Radio 2.

'Hopefully that will emerge again, my heyday was 1995 with Pulp and Oasis and Radiohead... and that was great, but music changes all the time and right now this is where we're at.

'Every year, we've been criticized for being too rock, too grime, too hip hop, too pop... it's just part of our year.'
