Update: The full video has been taken down, and replaced with an official short clip from Billboard.

During last night's Billboard Music Awards, Imagine Dragons payed tribute to the late great singer Ben E. King with a rousing rendition of "Stand By Me." Watch above, via Imagine Dragons' official YouTube.

Beginning with an electronic drum beat by Daniel Platzman and a bluesy guitar intro by Wayne "Wing" Sermon, you can see what makes Imagine Dragons a special band. Lead singer Dan Reynolds does a nice job with the song, as you can see the audience (including Taylor Swift) getting into it, dancing and singing along. It's a heartwarming performance, and tastefully done.

Smoke + Mirrors is available now on Amazon (MP3, CD, Vinyl) and iTunes. You can also stream the album and read our review here on Zumic.
