Bob Dylan paid tribute to film director Martin Scorsese at the Critics' Choice Movie Awards earlier this week (January 12) – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to watch the video.

The singer, who teamed up with Scorsese for the 2005 documentary No Direction Home, performed a rendition of his 1991 track 'Blind Willie McTell' to honour the director, who picked up the 'Music + Film' award for both his work in film and music documentaries such as The Last Waltz and his Rolling Stones film Shine A Light.

Speaking after Dylan's performance, Scorsese paid tribute to the singer and the other musicians who'd inspired him, stating:

Such a great honour and an amazing performance by the great one, Bob Dylan. This award has a very special significance to me, so I'd like to begin with a special thank you to Django Reinhardt, Stephane Grappelli and the Hot Club of France.


He went on to add: "That was the music I used to hear when I was growing up in my apartment in New York, even before we had a TV, in the middle to late 40s."

The 'Chimes Of Freedom: Songs Of Bob Dylan Honouring 50 Years Of Amnesty International' album, which features covers of the singer's songs by artists such as Ke$ha, Adele, My Chemical Romance and Queens Of The Stone Age, is released on January 30.
