Just days afte releasing their updated version of Sam Smith's "Lay Me Down" for charity, Smith and John Legend appeared at Comic Relief's Red Nose Day event to perform the track live.

They were among the celebrities gathered at the"Comic Relief: Face the Funny" event in London on Mar. 13.

Another highlight from the event included the One Direction tribute band, No Direction. The "group" performed in 1D's absence. No Direction included Vic Reeves as Harry Styles, Nick Helm as Zayn Malik, Patrick Kielty as Niall Horan, Johnny Vegas as Liam Payne and Jack Dee as Louis Tomlinson. In a video featuring the actual 1D, the real Styles called them "the greatest One Direction tribute band of all time."

 Judge for yourself. But keep me in mind it was for a good cause.
