In honour of the fifth anniversary of David Bowie's death, almost 100 musicians banded together to cover 40 songs across the six decades of the late singer's career.

But it was Adam Lambert's incredible performance of 'Starman' that stole the show.

Belting out the 1969 hit song as part of A Bowie Celebration: Just for One Day, the Queen frontman collaborated with David Bowie's longtime pianist – and the brains behind the concert – Mike Garson.

Dressed in a teal satin suit, the 38-year-old went all out with glittering eye make-up and green lipstick as he showcased his powerhouse vocals for the glam rock-inspired rendition.

The three-hour concert also included performances from Duran Duran, Boy George, Gary Barlow, Ricky Gervais and more.

Bowie died of cancer in 2016, just two days after his 69th birthday.
