Tom Jones covered Arctic Monkeys today (July 1) at the Concert For Diana.

The Welsh crooner did a version of ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ at London‘s Wembley Stadium.

Before he performed the radically altered version of the track he said: “Now we’re going to do something a little different. Something new.”


The commemorative gig saw Kanye West perform his new song, the Daft Punk sampling ‘Stronger’, and promise the crowd he would “rip this stage in half”.

His performance which saw him backed by an all female string section, a DJ and dancers all dressed in red, saw him race through a selection of songs including ‘Jesus Walks’, ‘Gold Digger’ and ‘Touch The Sky’.

Earlier Lily Allen performed her hits including ‘LDN’ and ‘Smile’ in a distinctive blue dress against an animated background.

Pharrell Williams also performed a selection of hits including the NERD track ‘She Wants To Move’ and the Snoop Dogg track ‘Drop It Like It’s Hot’.

He told the audience: “Despite all the crazy things that have happened over the world I want the people to stand up for peace.”
