Lewis Capaldi Comes Out To Champions League Anthem At BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend

Lewis Capaldi Comes Out To Champions League Anthem At BBC Radio 1 Big Weekend

Thousands of fans got in the Champions League spirit at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend after singer Lewis Capaldi arrived on stage in style.

Ahead of Saturday's final between Liverpool and Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano in Madrid, the chart-topping Scotsman decided to give Middlesbrough the ultimate goosebumps anthem. "WE ARE THE CHAMPIOOOONS!"

Moments later, Shane McMahon's entrance theme "Here Comes The Money" dropped and the crowd went wild.

Capaldi soon walked out in a leopard print jacket, surrounded by wads of cash, and well, it was an entrance Kat Slater would have been proud of.

Capaldi, everyone's favourite Scottish pop star, was certainly busy before the concert even started.

He gave customers at a Greggs in Middlesbrough a surprise when he got dressed up in disguise and started serving them pasties.

The 22-year-old singer donned a full Greggs uniform, as well as a hairnet and name badge to carry out some unusual 'work experience' at the shop on Stokesley Road, which is near to the park that Lewis played at this weekend.

Capaldi's rise in popularity across an incredibly short space of time has been impressive, but when it comes to entrances to festivals, Post Malone is the real king.

Malone is a massive Stone Cold Steve Austin fan; the guy even dedicated his song "Go Flex" as a tribute to The Texas Rattlesnake.

The American rapper, who appeared on a podcast with the former WWE superstar, went as far as asking Stone Cold to collaborate with him on a song last year - something we definitely want to see in the future.

"And that's the bottom line, cuz Stone Cold said so!"

Malone, one of the biggest artists in the world, is also known to come out to his concerts with Stone Cold Steve Austin's theme song blaring in the background as he greets his thousands of fans.

Is there actually a better way to hype up the crowd than the classic window smash?

No is the answer, by the way.
