After giving Jimmy a gift (a music box playing the iconic piano lead to “Clocks”), Martin began singing the song, and soon an in-studio orchestra appeared, backing Martin as he continued, walked up the stairs in the set and made his way to the roof, where he and his band performed the song to a backdrop of fireworks.
