Ezra first performed “underneath the hot sun,” as he sings in the song’s chorus, with a Lion King-esque sun serving as the number’s opening backdrop. The performance then became a (fittingly) car-themed spectacle, as the screen behind the singer flashing between the grill of a car, traffic lights and street signs.
Though Ezra was accompanied by a full brass band, fans could be heard singing along to “Shotgun” loud and clear, further validating the singer’s new British male solo artist title. Ezra’s win marks his first Brit Award, with two more pending for the night — including “Shotgun” for British single of the year.
