BBC celebrated its inaugural BBC Music Awards last night with a number of performances, including a special show from Calvin Harris. The Scottish producer manned a piano to perform his hit singles "Blame" and "Outside" with John Newman and Ellie Goulding respectively. Harris, Newman, and Goulding were even joined by a guitarist and a violin section.
Not one to usually appear at awards ceremonies, Harris told BBC why he performed and attended:
"The first time I was played on the radio was by Pete Tong back in the summer of 2006. Then it just went from there and Radio 1 have always played my records and I've been eternally grateful."
Hosted by Captain America actor Chris Evans and Fearne Cotton, the BBC Music Awards also included performances from One Direction, Coldplay, and Clean Bandit. While Harris received no nominations, his performance with Newman and Goulding goes down in history as a highlight from the first year of the awards ceremony.
