Watch One Direction, Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding, Bono & More Perform ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas?’ For Band Aid 30
Nearly every British artist ever gathered together this weekend to re-record the holiday classic, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” in honor of the charity single’s 30th anniversary. That is, except for Adele.
“She has so many amazing people writing for her. It’s like trying to win American Idol, getting a song on Rihanna’s album,” Martin said.
“It’s going to be a lot more song-oriented,” the DJ and producer explained. “True was an attempt at that, getting electronic music in a song format.”
Chris Martin doesn’t think his band’s new album is for everyone, but he’s proud of it anyway.
In front of dangling paper stars, Martin sang the rather somber song, which samples his daughter Apple’s voice.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony used to be a drunken, freewheeling event that would stretch to all hours of the night. Today it’s an arena-rock spectacle with stunning moments that won’t soon be forgotten.

Vote for your favorite Coldplay song in this match up of ‘This Or That.’
Another chunk of the universal heart just fell off today, as Gwynth Paltrow announced via Faceook/GOOP/mass email that she and Coldplay’s Chris Martin will be undergoing a “conscious uncoupling.”
Don’t worry Voice contestants, Chris Martin is going to try and fix you.
