George Ezra censored his performance of his hit Green Green Grass as he took the stage for the star-studded Party At The Palace concert at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Concert on Saturday night.
The singer, 28, took the stage outside Buckingham Palace in London to celebrate Her Majesty’s 70th anniversary on the throne.
But he made sure he didn’t sing about dying people the way he sang Green Green Grass, omitting the line, “Green green grass, blue blue sky / You’d better throw a party the day I die.”

Meanwhile, another person posted: ‘Who else thinks George Ezra should have changed the lyrics to ‘Have a party, it’s the Queen’s Jubilee’ instead of censoring the day I completely die!!’
“George Ezra self-censorship ‘You better have a party the day I die’ was weird,” wrote another person at home.
While another wrote, “Of all the great songs George Ezra could have sung, he literally sings one about throwing a party the day you die… and then censoring it.”

It comes after Queen Elizabeth made a surprise appearance with Paddington Bear in a platinum anniversary sketch.
Beaming: The Queen has delighted millions of viewers by appearing in a surprise comic strip with Paddington Bear to kick off the Party In The Palace Platinum Jubilee concert on Saturday
The 96-year-old monarch delighted the public by having tea with the famous fictional bear at Windsor Castle at the start of the Platinum Party at the Palace.
The Queen was unable to attend the event, but the sketch came as a surprise to some of her close relatives.
The Queen was determined to play a part in showing the British public just how much the celebrations have meant to her in a sketch that echoed her appearance with James Bond at the opening ceremony of the 2012 London Olympics.
New friends: The bear congratulated the Queen on her 70th reign and said, “Happy anniversary ma’am. And thanks. For all.’
A Buckingham Palace spokesperson said: ‘While the Queen may not attend the concert in person, she was very keen that people understood how much it meant to her and that all the audience had a great time.
Her Majesty is known for her sense of humor, so it should come as no surprise that she decided to take part in tonight’s skit.
“There was interest in the filming and animation process and the chance to invite a famous bear for tea was just too good to miss.”
Party of two: The Queen performed a skit for the BBC’s Platinum Party at the Palace, where she and Paddington Bear chatted before joining Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You’ to cap the party and star-studded concert tonight. to start
The sketch showed Her Majesty inviting Paddington over for cream tea, which went awry when the clumsy bear drank the frost’s cup of tea and sprayed a footman with cream from a chocolate eclair.
Paddington also showed the monarch that he kept marmalade sandwiches under his hat, with the queen revealing that she kept some in her handbag.
Paddington then congratulated the Queen on her 70-year reign and said: ‘Happy anniversary madam. And thanks for everything.’
The monarch replied, “That is very kind.”
The sequence ended with the Queen and Paddington using a spoon to tap the beat of Queen’s We Will Rock You on a china teacup as the rockers began the musical performances.
