Lorde Performs Life On Mars In Tribute To David Bowie At 2016 BRIT Awards
People have been speculating for weeks what the BRIT Awards would do to commemorate the life of David Bowie at this year’s ceremony.
And it’s safe to say that they didn’t disappoint, as not only did Annie Lennox and Gary Oldman present him with a much-deserved Icon Award, but Lorde also performed one of his biggest hits.
Taking to the stage alongside Bowie’s band, the singer gave a perfect rendition of Life On Mars - and we can’t imagine there was a dry eye in the house afterwards.
Back in January, Lorde posted a lovely tribute to David when she heard he had passed away.
She wrote on Facebook: “I'll never forget the caressing of our hands as we spoke, or the light in his eyes. That night something changed in me - I felt a calmness grow, a sureness.
“I think in those brief moments, he heralded me into my next new life, an old rock and roll alien angel in a perfect grey suit.
“I realized everything I’d ever done, or would do from then on, would be done like maybe he was watching.”
What a lovely way to honour him.
