First, Annie Lennox came on stage to pay tribute to the late singing legend, who passed away last month. Then his friend, actor Gary Oldman, came on stage to give a moving speech.

โ€œHe was the very definition, the living embodiment of that singular word; icon." - Gary Oldman https://t.co/R8sYJ25ffy

But it was when Lorde came on stage alongside Bowie's former tour band that things got truly emotional.

The band played an instrumental medley of his songs before Lorde walked out on stage.

It was pretty epic stuff.
