Or if you're in the UK (where that YouTube video is blocked) try the BBC iPlayer version, which is just the amazing bit:

And then watch the first video in this local news article.

(you may need to unmute the sound). It shows quite a bit of how the performance and camerawork was achieved, and also, as sound is coming from a TV that was on in the room, accidentally reveals that there was an unusually long safety delay on the broadcast: about a minute rather than the normal few seconds. That was probably the sum of multiple delays due to the need for robust transmission of this live performance from Birmingham to Australia and back, unless the ceremony organisers were really terrified of political demonstrators.
