Imagine Dragons Cover ‘Stand By Me’ In Emotional Tribute To Ben E. King At 2015 Billboard Music Awards

Everyone looked like they were in need of a tissue on Sunday night after Imagine Dragons’ tribute to the late Ben E. King at the 2015 Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

It was a hometown show for the band, who definitely managed to get tears flowing with their cover of Kings’ “Stand By Me,” despite the song’s promise not to shed a tear.

King died on April 30 at the age of 76 and the band had previously covered his 1961 hit during a visit to SiriusXM Studios in February.
