The Scottish singer-songwriter channelled Jay-Z's 2008 headline performance at the festival by responding to the Oasis rocker's criticism before his set.
The Scottish singer-songwriter took to the Other Stage at Worthy Farm to an impressive crowd on Saturday at 4pm and played out our video of Noel Gallagher criticising him in conversation with Radio X's Gordon Smart and Matt Morgan.
Then, much to the crowd's delight, he appeared wearing a parka and dressed in a t-shirt which had Noel Gallagher's face inside a heart. Watch our video of the moment above.
Capaldi later Instagrammed his Glastonbury experience - including a selfie with Noel's brother Liam Gallagher, who was performing at the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night.
Noel's daughter Anaïs Gallagher even chipped in with a comment on the event, tweeting; "I want to be Lewis Capaldi when I grow up."
Other fans thought that the parka and t-shirt combo was the perfect response to the "feud".

Hinting at his success, his huge set and the promotion given to him by the Manchester rocker, the singer came out boldly to Naughty by Nature track, Here Comes The Money.
Speaking to the audience at the festival's second biggest stage, the Someone You Loved singer was over-awed by the turn out, saying: "This is absolutely mental, there are so many people here."

Capaldi was no doubt also paying homage to Jay-Z's 2008 headline performance at the festival, where he hit back at the Oasis songsmith's criticism of a rapper topping the bill.
As reported by the likes of The Independent at the time, when hearing that the American rapper would headline the festival in 2008, Gallagher famously told BBC News "Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go 'Kylie Minogue?’ I don't know about it.
"But I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong."
Jay-Z's response at the festival 11 years ago saw him come out holding a guitar and singing Wonderwall before launching into his 99 problems single.

The banter all started between Noel Gallagher and Lewis Capaldo when Noel took park in a in a recent Radio X interview backstage ahead of his Heaton Park gig on Friday 7 June.
When asked what he thought of new music, the Holy Mountain singer said it was "fucking wank" and called out the Scottish singer specifically, asking: "Who the fuck's that idiot?"
Over the weekend, Lewis reacted hilariously to the namecheck, posting a series of videos, which saw him overjoyed at being mentioned by the Oasis rocker.
He also took the time to wish Noel a Happy Father's Day and even share a link to his new Black Star Dancing EP.

Not one to be outdone, Noel Gallagher reacted to Capaldi's response, calling him a "daftie" and suggesting he inject some "joy" into his songs.
He included a video of his own, which showed his eldest son Donovan singing along to Capaldi's No.1 track mockingly.

Noel's former Oasis bandmate and estranged brother Liam has even got in on the action.
Asked by one of his 1.7million followers if he's a fan of Capaldi he joked: "I do now".

If that wasn't enough banter for one month, Lewis Capaldi then responded to a tweet from Official Charts Company about the end of his album chart reign.
When the company announced that his debut album, Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, would be knocked off the top spot by Madonna's Madame X or Bruce Springsteen's Western Stars, he simply responded: "This is all your fucking fault @NoelGallagher".
