Watch: Conan O'Brien's Touching And Glorious Tribute To David Bowie

The world stood still when music icon David Bowie passed away on Sunday, aged 69.

Well, some of us were still. Thousands did flock to Brixton to belt out a few of his classics in a moving celebration of the great man's life and works:

US talk-show host Conan O'Brien, who had interviewed Bowie on a number of occasions, paid his own tribute to the Star Man by dedicating six minutes of his show to reflect on some of the moments he spent with the singer.

Visibly shaken by the loss of a friend, O'Brien's tribute followed suit with the hoards of sing-along well-wishers in Brixton, by celebrating the life of one of the world's greatest ever entertainers:

People are remembering today what a phenomenal musician David Bowie was... but in my experience, he was also an incredibly nice person, he was fun, and he was always funny,

he told his audience and viewers at home.

Conan's late-night announcer and long-term comedic partner Andy Richter also tweeted his regard for Bowie:
