On Saturday (5th November), Eminem and Ed Sheeran performed the rapper’s iconic song Stan at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.

Eminem was also inducted into the organisation this year by Dr. Dre and performed a number of songs, including his 1999 hit My Name Is. He was also joined by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler to perform a rendition of Sing for the Moment.

The rapper then brought Ed Sheeran onstage for a live performance of the song Stan, which you can watch below.

Elsewhere during the ceremony, the Eurythmics reunited to perform three songs at the event, with both vocalist Annie Lennox and instrumentalist Dave Stewart being inducted into the Hall of Fame this year.

Lionel Richie also took to the stage to play a medley of Hello, All Night Long and the Commodores’ hit, Easy. For the latter, he was joined by Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl on guitar. Dolly Parton also performed her hit Jolene with Judas Priest’s Rob Halford.

Another band present at this year’s even and inducted into the hall of fame was Duran Duran. However, the band’s original guitarist Andy Taylor was forced to miss the event after revealing he was undergoing treatment for stage 4 prostate cancer.

The group read out an emotional letter from the musician explaining why he was unable to attend. It read: "Just over four years ago I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic prostate cancer.

"Many families have experienced the slow burn of this disease and of course we are no different; so I speak from the perspective of a family man but with profound humility to the band, the greatest fans a group could have and this exceptional accolade.

"I have the 'Rodgers and Edwards' [referring to pop producers and founders of Chic, Nile Rodgers and Bernard Edwards], of doctors and medical treatment that until very recently allowed me to just rock on.

"Although my current condition is not immediately life-threatening, there is no cure."

He went on to say he was “massively disappointed” to be missing the event but was “very proud of these four brothers” and “overjoyed” at receiving the award.
