Metro Reports Queen's Live Aid Perfromance Tops Poll Best Live Group PerformanceQUEEN ARE THE CHAMPIONS

It was the moment that will be talked about forever - Queen electrifying 70,000 people at Live Aid in 1985. The iconic group left the crowd awestruck. And yesterday the legends of rock officially took the title for the best live group performance.

Britain's Top 50 Live Music Moments of All Time were revealed in a Living The Moment public poll. Bob Dylan's Free Trade Hall gig in 1966 won the best solo artist category, while the Rolling Stones beat Janet Jackson's 'wardrobe malfunction' to take honours in the most controversial moment. The Stones were voted number one for their free concert at the Altamont Speedway in San Francisco in 1969.

A panel of musicians including Dizzee Rascal, Danny Goffrey from Supergrass, and Chad Smash from Madness helped choose the winners.

The best festival moment went to Radiohead for their 1997 Glastonbury set. The results have been brought to life in a photographic exhibition at the Sony Ericsson Proud Gallery in Camden, North London.
