Lily Allen joins Big Pink for Shockwaves NME Awards performance

Singer tackles 'Dominos' and 'You're So Vain' with London band

Lily Allen joined The Big Pink to perform their song ‘Dominos’ plus a cover of Carly Simon‘s 1972 song ‘You’re So Vain’ at the Shockwaves NME Awards ceremony this evening (February 24).

The two songs segued into each other during the performance at London‘s O2 Academy Brixton.

The band were joined onstage by three animatronic robots – two pole dancing and boasting CCTV units for heads, while one had a loudspeaker for a head and made drumming motions at the back of the stage.

As the first half of ‘Dominos’ ended Allen emerged wearing a black dress to sing on a verse of Carly Simon‘s ‘You’re So Vain’. Singer Robbie Furze then took the lead as the song segued back into The Big Pink‘s song.
