How does the show work?

In the first round, Five of Five from Five, the three pairs get the chance to answer five quick fire music questions and name five artists/songs which have all been top five hits, from five different decades.

They’ll then go forward to the buzzer round where contestants must buzz in to identify the title and artist of a song as an extract is played.

The top two teams go forward to the Intros round where they must identity the songs as they begin to play against the clock.

The top team faces the final round where they must correctly name ten songs and artists as they’re played – but after five seconds, the prize money begins to drop. However much is left after all ten songs have been named will go to their chosen charity.


The Hit List first started in May 2019 and has aired a trio of series so far with a fourth on the way. Alongside the main series, Celebrity specials have aired December 2019 and 2020.
