Liam Gallagher has paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester Arena bombing at the Brit Awards after Ariana Grande was forced to pull out due to illness.
The American pop star was due to take to the stage to remember the victims of the attack that took place at her concert in May last year, but was not well enough to travel to the UK.
Gary Barlow introduced Liam Gallagher, who performed Oasis track Live Forever, and said the victims "will always live on forever in our hearts, in our minds and in our memories".
The Take That star said: "May 22 2017 will always be remembered for the saddest of reasons. That night 14,000 people were having a wonderful time watching Ariana Grande at the Manchester Arena.
On Wednesday afternoon, the chief executive of the Brit Awards confirmed that Grande was unable to travel to the UK on doctors orders.
Two weeks after the Manchester attack, Grande returned to the city after organising the One Love Manchester benefit concert, which enthralled and warmed the hearts of a global audience of millions.
