George Ezra censors song at Party at the Palace to remove lyric about dying


Singer-songwriter George Ezra censored his song lyric about dying during his performance at the Platinum Party At The Palace. The musician performed his hit song Green Green Grass at the star-studded event outside Buckingham Palace on Saturday (June 4) in celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s incredible 70 year reign.

And viewers watching the BBC coverage noticed that the Shotgun and Budapest hitmaker omitted a line from the chorus in which he sings: “Green green grass, blue blue sky, you better throw a party on the day that I die.” Instead he ended the chorus at “you better throw a party” and filled in the rest with an instrumental.

Viewers flocked to Twitter to have their say. @afcwomblelong said: “Should have just sang ‘on the day I eat pie'” @KernowLeeds22 tweeted: “George Ezra self editing ‘better throw a party on the day that I die’ for the 96 year old queen’s Jubilee is pretty hilarious not going to lie.”

@PINKSUZIQ72 said: “I’m sorry Craig David can sing about s*****g his mrs 6 days a week but George Ezra can’t sing about having a party when you die.”

@islandniles gasped: “Oh my GOD, they’ve edited this George Ezra song because the main lyric is ‘you’d better throw a party on the day that I die.’ Why didn’t he just do a different song?” Roushan Alam tweeted: “Never saw George Ezra’s Green Green Grass being the most censored song of the evening.”



George’s song was censored

Katy agreed: “We had a few songs I thought they might have vetoed for raunchyness for the royals, but you’re right George Ezra not what I thought would be censored.” And @leahnicoIe commented: “Big lol. Is @george_ezra not actually allowed to sing ‘on the day that I die’ ???”

Queen and Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, Ella Eyre, Craig David, Mabel, Elbow, Duran Duran, Andrea Bocelli, Sam Ryder, Celeste, Nile Rodgers and Diversity were also among the performers paying tribute to Her Majesty’s special anniversary watched by members of the royal family.

To kick off the concert the Queen rocked out to Queen with Paddington Bear in an adorable sketch. The animated children’s character was seen having tea with Her Majesty and they both confessed to carrying around a marmalade sandwich.

The Queen was unable to attend the Saturday night party but, in a two-and-a-half minute sketch reminiscent of the James Bond surprise in 2012 when she played herself opposite Daniel Craig to ‘parachute’ into the Olympic Games, she revealed her sense of humour.

The clumsy bear showed Her Majesty what he hides underneath his hat – one of his beloved marmalade sandwiches. And the Queen confided “so do I” as she opened her handbag and said: “I keep mine in here.”

The Peruvian bear congratulated the Queen saying: “Happy Jubilee Ma’am. And thank you for everything.” And she replied: “That’s very kind.”
