Declan McKenna is a genuine superstar in waiting, and here’s the proof

Watch him blast through 'Brazil' at BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend. In shorts.
Over the weekend, BBC Radio 1 threw a massive party in Hull. City of glittering delights, their Big Weekend packed all kinds of superstar names. Being the BBC, they’ve also shared a whole load of performances in case you missed it as it happened.

As part of the fun, the BBC Introducing Stage packed in a whole load of new talent. It’ll be one of the last times you see Genuine Grade A Superstar In Waiting Declan McKenna on a stage so small, that’s for sure. With his debut album due in a couple of months, he already feels like he’s on the verge of something properly special. All while wearing shorts. Check out his performance of ‘Brazil’ below.
