Yungblud paid tribute to one of his heroes Sunday with a cover of David Bowie‘s “Heroes.”

The “Original Me” rocker performed the 1977 rock classic during last weekend’s Team GB Homecoming Concert, celebrating the U.K.’s athletes returning from this year’s Summer Olympics in Tokyo.

You can watch footage of Yungblud’s faithful “Heroes” rendition streaming now on YouTube.

Other Team GB Homecoming Concert performers included Bastille and Rag’n’Bone Man.

Yungblud previously covered Bowie’s “Life on Mars?” for a virtual tribute concert earlier this year. The performance was later used to soundtrack NASA’s livestream of the Perseverance Mars Rover’s successful landing.
