The director has given his verdict on last night's BRITs tribute.
Duncan Jones has appeared to give his verdict on the tributes made to David Bowie at last night's BRIT Awards.
His late father was honoured at the awards ceremony with a posthumous Icon Award, as well as a performance from Lorde and with Bowie's touring band.
After being seeing videos of the tribute, the director has taken to Twitter to call it "beautiful".
Finally found the links to tonight's Brits. Just... beautiful. Thank you.— Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) February 25, 2016
The Moon-creator's response seems more positive and far more definitive compared to his comment on Lady Gaga's tribute at the GRAMMYs.
"overexcited or irrational, typically as a result of infatuation or excessive enthusiasm; mentally confused." Damn it! What IS that word!?— Duncan Jones (@ManMadeMoon) February 16, 2016
While some thought it was an innocent nod to the singer's tribute, others saw it as a direct attack on the "overexcited" nature of her performance.
Bowie's Icon Award was presented by Annie Lennox and accepted by his friend Gary Oldman, who told the audience:“He was the very definition, the living embodiment of that singular word; icon."
