“I was crying today, at times,” frontman Matty Healy told BBC after their initial rehearsal for the big performance. “The orchestra really makes the up moments more celebratory and the down moments more introspective and melancholy.

The group also covered Justin Bieber and One Direction, and even more, they performed “Please Be Naked” live for the first time ever.
