All The Best Performances from BBC Radio 1 The Biggest Weekend 2018
In abundance of concerts, from Boston Calling to The Biggest Weekend 2018, the artists are making live appearances everywhere. BBC Radio 1’s annual event ‘The Biggest Weekend’ unfolded last night to a record crowd of 60,000 at Singleton Park in Swansea. Some of the major acts in the music industry performed their biggest hits on 26th and 27th nights.
The Biggest Weekend 2018 was glorified with over 35 hottest artists in the buzz right now, and they all performed their biggest songs and raved the crowds.
Watch below the best performances from the two nights.
Taylor Swift – Gorgeous
Before the song, Taylor Swift addressed the crowd saying it’s her first time in Swansea, and this was met by a loud cheer. “It kind of took my breath away,” added Taylor Swift, about the energy of the crowd singing along to the songs.
“You all look a level above beautiful,” said Taylor to the crowd. “What’s the word for something more than beautiful?,” she added paving the way to the song “Gorgeous.”
During the performance of the song, she gave a shout out to all her backup dancers who were on stage. “And I’m Taylor,” she added waving at the crowd. These all were met by massive cheers from the crowd. Talk about an entertainer!
Camila Cabello – Havanna
Camila and her whole dance crew appeared in full black clothing and Camila did a bit of Salsa with a backup dancer during the live act. However, the lack of Young Thug’s verses was felt.
Shawn Mendes and James Bay – Mercy
Shawn Mendes started off with a solemn and an acoustic rendition of his biggest hit “Mercy” and James Bay joined with another acoustic guitar.
After James Bay took his leave from the stage, Shawn Mendes went on to perform “In My Blood.”
Hailie Steinfeld – Let Me Go
Hailie has been establishing herself as a musician and this is her biggest hit yet. Herself and the backup dancers break danced to the EDM song.
Demi Lovato – Sorry Not Sorry
This performance included a row of backup dancers who did nothing but clap and chill at the back of the stage. There should be a story behind that.
Niall Horan – Slow Hands
The ex-1D member performed his solo hit “Slow Hands” and the crowd seemed to be singing along to every word.
Liam Payne – Familiar (The Biggest Weekend)
Ed Sheeran – Castle on the Hill and Shape Of You
The greatest thing about Ed Sheeran’s performances is that he setups his music on stage. Even at The Biggest Weekend in Swansea, we saw him prepare the beats and tune live on stage before he started “Shape Of You.”
The world’s most talented ginger appeared with his usual acoustic guitar with the “Divide” sticker on it and stunned the crowd.
The crowds sang both the songs in unison along with Ed Sheeran.
Again, we saw Ed Sheeran setup his loop pedal for the music of “Castle on the Hill.”
Jess Glynne – I’ll Be There
Sigrid – High Five
