There was plenty of action at last night’s Billboard Music Awards.

From Taylor Swift snuggling up to new man Calvin Harris, to Chris Brown posing with his daughter Royalty on the red carpet, it was all happening.

But rock band Simple Minds managed to steal the show by performing their classic hit Don’t You (Forget About Me) to mark the 30th anniversary of The Breakfast Club.

‘Thirty years ago I was part of a club that made history, ’ said the 47-year-old star.

‘To celebrate John and this [30th] anniversary I am proud to introduce a rock classic.’

The Eighties It Girl, who starred alongside Ally Sheedy, Emilio Estevez and Judd Nelson in the 1985 film, then joked that she wanted to be a member of Taylor’s club.

You’re not the only one, Molly!

She then rushed down to join the Bad Blood singer in the crowd and the duo clapped and sung along to the hit, which was the theme song to The Breakfast Club.
