Tinie Tempah - Tinie Tempah Was Terrified During Baftas Performance

Rapper Tinie Tempah was overcome with stage fright during his performance at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) Awards after he spotted some of Hollywood's most famous stars in the audience.

The British hip-hop sensation took to the stage at the annual prizegiving in London last month (Feb14) with singer Laura Mvula, and thrilled the star-studded audience by 'high-fiving' British royal Prince William, who was sat in the front row.

However, despite his confident appearance, the star admits the ceremony's glamorous guests were a major distraction.

He says, "I'm used to performing in front of screaming 16 to 18 year olds and then I had Leonardo DiCaprio and Steve MCQueen that directed (sic) 12 Years A Slave, Prince William and the amazing Cate Blanchett.

"As soon as I walked out, Cate was the first person I saw and I was like, 'I'm going to mess up all my words.'"
