The festive advert sees 59 children between 6 and 11 perform New Radicals' You Get What You Give.

Sainsbury's have released their new Christmas campaign, and it features a well-known 90s earworm.

The Big Night sees 59 children aged from 6-11 perform New Radical's 1998 hit, You Get What You Give, for their family with an eight-year-old dressed as the North Star providing lead vocals.

Watch the feel-good festive advert above, which was helmed by The Greatest Showman director Michael Gracey.

Sainsbury's write in their video description: "The Show tells the story of the North Star overcoming her nerves to deliver a performance of a lifetime, to the amazement of mum. She is supported by a huge cast of 59 kids aged 6-11, all dressed as a variety of Christmas staples - including a turkey drummer and set of Christmas lights (plug included). The cast all dance and sing along as the stage transforms to reveal a 40ft Christmas tree and a 14ft glitter-filled gravy boat.

"The children’s real parents were featured in the crowd too, and were intentionally kept away from the castings and rehearsals until shoot day."

Sainsbury's aren't the only ones getting plenty attention over the festive season.

Chris Moyles pranked the nation when he 'leaked' a fake John Lewis Christmas advert.

This week it was revealed the Radio X DJ was behind a clip which led fans to believe the John Lewis advert had leaked and Elton John's Rocket Man could be this year's song.

Watch him reveal himself as the culprit here:

John Lewis even responded to the prank, and even showed they had a funny side, writing: "@ChrisMoyles thanks for auditioning for our 2019 Christmas advert. You've got it! See you next year! "
