Tinie Tempah Raps at the BAFTA's, High Fives Prince William [Video]

There's always that moment at the BAFTAs. That moment that just seems a little out of place. This year, that moment was entrusted to Tinie Tempah who was tasked with wandering down the aisles at London's Royal Albert Hall in a blue velvet smoking jacket, rapping and high fiving rigid looking celebrities.

The rapper was performing a duet with Mercury Prize nominee Laura Mvula, who was singing from the safety of one of the theatre boxes. Tinie on the other hand was down with the A-listers, wearing sunglasses, rapping. The 25-year-old appeared to be enjoying himself though - as did Emma Thompson - and when wandering across the front-row, he high-fived a rather embarrassed looking Prince William.

"Do you know what? It was great. I just saw him there and I thought, why not? And it felt great. I've seen my Twitter, it's going crazy at the minute, but it was fun. Such a memorable performance," Tempah told the BBC's Lizo Mzimba afterwards.

"We've met a couple of times now, I felt safe. I felt like something bad wasn't going to happen. It's alright, I'm happy."

It seems as though Tinie had himself a great time at the BAFTA's after-parties too. The Daily Mail have images of the rapper deep in conversation with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie at The London Edition Hotel. 

Pitt's movie 12 Years a Slave - directed by Steve McQueen - won best movie and best lead actor (for Chiwetel Ejiofor), though lost out in the categories of adapted screenplay, supporting actress, supporting actor and best director. Gravity was the evening's success story, taking home several awards including best British film.
