Glastonbury 2019: Kylie Minogue's triumphant return, Stormzy's Banksy-designed vest and other jaw-dropping moments
Don't stop the music
Wearing a custom-made, stab-proof vest that was created by legendary street artist Banksy, Stormzy threw down an incredibly powerful set. He opened with a few words of encouragement by hip-hop icon Jay-Z, before upping the ante with Coldplay's Chris Martin and a soulful choir.
British singer-songwriter George Ezra was on anti-inflammatory medication and had to perform seated on a stool, because he sprained his ankle while running a few weeks back, but he still brought his A-game.
Psychadelic band Tame Impala closed out Friday with some trippy vibes and new material including "Patience" and "Borderline".
After a string of underwhelming performances by Janet Jackson and former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, Glastonbury came alive on the second day when The Killers brought the masses to their feet with their chart-toppers ("Mr Brightside", "Somebody Told Me) as well as an unexpected guest appearance by the Pet Shop Boys during their encore.
Vampire Weekend covered Fleetwood Mac's "Everywhere" during their secret show.
Kylie Minogue fought back tears when she told the crowd that she had to cancel her headlining set at Glastonbury in 2005 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She brought out Chris Martin for a flamenco-inspired version of "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" and Nick Cave for a sexually-charged rendition of "Wild Rose".
Decked out in gold Chanel and Gucci accessories, Miley Cryus kicked off her high-energy set with "Nothing Breaks Like A Heart" and Amy Winehouse's "Back To Black", which DJ and producer Mark Ronson joined her on stage for. Later on, Lil Nas X (wearing a Miley Cyrus T-shirt) and her father Billy Rae Cyrus made a surprise appearance to perform their mega-hit "Old Town Road".
Lizzo is on a roll. Last week, her performance atop a wedding cake at the BET Awards went viral. Dressed in a pink sequin leotard, she brought that same irreverence to her set at Glastonbury, jolting the crowd alive with her sassy one-liners.
