Some of the biggest stars in music came out in force to celebrate the songs of Sir Elton John and Bernie Taupin this week.
Later, Ed spoke about the influence Elton has had on him, saying: "Elton has had many different impacts on my life in all the different stages of my life so far.
"From youth it’s been getting me interested in music by listening to the songs, and teenage years getting me into songwriting by being influenced by the songs, and in adult life it’s sort of helping me charter this weird little music industry game - helping me out basically. So it’s been quite a journey."
Sam Smith, Miley Cyrus, John Legend and Little Big Town were also among the performers on the night. Watch some snippets below:
There was also a cover of 'I Guess That's Why They Call it the Blues' by singer Alessia Cara, who admitted to being rather "nervous" before the show:
