Former One Direction member Styles was the one who introduced Fleetwood Mac during the event. He later joined the group for their performance of "The Chain."
However, this is not the first time that Styles covered the song. The 23-year-old singer already performed the said track during his BBC Radio 1 live performance in September.
Bill Clinton Expresses Gratitude To Fleetwood Mac
Other than Lorde, HAIM, and Styles, Fleetwood Mac was also honored by former president Bill Clinton. He personally picked "Don't Stop" as the theme song for his 1992 campaign.
"They let me use it as a theme song and I have been trying to live by it ever since. I owe a great deal to all of them," said Clinton.
Other artists who honored Fleetwood Mac on Friday include Keith Urban, Miley Cyrus, and Juanes. Band members Mick Fleetwood, John McVie, Lindsey Buckingham, Christine McVie, and Stevie Nicks expressed their gratitude to their fellow artists and fans by singing "Little Lies" toward the end of the three-hour show.
Fleetwood Mac's History
Fleetwood Mac was formed in London in 1967. The group sold over 100 million records and they were also dubbed as one of the best-selling bands in the world. Some of their most popular songs include "Dreams," "Songbird," and "Rhiannon."
In 1998, the group decided to pursue their individual careers. It was only in 2014 when they reunited. The rock band then went on a successful world tour. Their recent event raised an estimated $7 million for MusiCares.
