Ellie Goulding played covers by the likes of The Killers, Stevie Wonder and Bryan Adams at Prince William and Kate Middleton's Royal Wedding reception on Friday (April 29).

As widely expected, the singer kicked off the set at Buckingham Palace in London with her cover of Elton John's 'Your Song'.

According to the News Of The World, she then played versions of 'Mr Brightside', 'Superstition' and The Wannadies' 'You And Me Song' for the guests, who included Prince Charles and Camilla and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Goulding performed two further covers - Bryan Adams' 'Summer Of '69' and The Jacksons' 'Blame It On The Boogie' - along with a pair of her own hits, 'Lights' and 'Starry Eyed'.

Later, a DJ spun tracks including Dizzee Rascal's 'Bonkers', Kings Of Leon's 'Sex On Fire' and Jay-Z's 'Empire State Of Mind' for the 300-strong crowd.



Speaking to BBC News about the gig, Goulding said: "It was an amazing honour to be asked by Kate and William to perform at their party. The atmosphere was incredible and it is a night I will never forget."

Meanwhile, the Sunday Mirror reports that William and Kate later "strutted and sang" their way through a "hilarious" version of 'You're The One That I Want' from the musical Grease at the bash.

A handful of stars from the music world attended the couple's wedding ceremony at Westminster Abbey earlier in the day, including Elton John, Joss Stone and The Spice Girls' Victoria Beckham.
