Sir Tom Jones has stunned the audience and judges alike with an emotional performance of Ben E King's classic Stand By Me, in a recent episode of The Voice UK alongside his fellow judge, Anne-Marie.

He followed up the performance by sharing a clip of the duet on X (formerly Twitter) writing,  "What a treat to perform with the sensational @AnneMarie!"

Fans flocked to the comment section to praise the pair's performance.

"Tom Jones .... WOW.... His voice is as good as it was way back. Amazing vocals. Love watching Olly's reaction when Sir Tom sings," one commented, with another writing, "This is so so good. How on earth can Tom sing like this still. Amazing."

A third added, "I love seeing artists from way different gens transcending time together and I hope @RealSirTomJones lives forever. The years haven't touched you Sir Tom, same powerful voice."

Ben E. King released Stand By Me in 1961, and it is still a beloved song by millions of people around the world!

Stand By Me has been a wedding favourite for decades, but none more notable than the Royal Wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in 2018! 

Before exchanging their vows in Windsor Castle, Karen Gibson and The Kingdom Choir performed a gospel version of the song, which was chosen by the couple.
