Dizzee Rascal is taking inspiration for his live shows from Bob Marley.

The 28-year-old rapper has been watching old concert footage of Bob Marley and The Wailers on YouTube and has been blown away by the quality of his performances

Speaking at the Q Awards on Monday (21.10.13) he told BANG Showbiz: ''last night I was watching Bob Marley and The Wailer's concert on YouTube, on the big screen''.

Dizzee - real name Dylan Mills - often watches other stars performing on TV to get inspiration for his shows.

He continued: ''At home I'll sit there watching other people's gigs''.

The 'Something Really Bad' hitmaker has said before he would love to collaborate with the deceased reggae legend if it were possible.

He said: ''If I could get Bob Marley on a track that would be wicked.''

Dizzee recorded recent single, 'Going Crazy', with Robbie Williams - who was named Q Idol at the event - which he will be performing during his upcoming tour.

Dizzee's new album, 'The Fifth', is out now.
