Liam Payne Covers 'The Middle' at First Headlining Show, Zedd Approves: Watch


“The Middle” is Zedd's biggest hit since his Ariana Grande collaboration “Break Free” in 2014. The tune was co-produced with Zedd's friends Grey and sung by the incomparable Maren Morris, but a recent cover by Liam Payne has the Russian DJ gushing, too.      

The former One Direction singer stopped by the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge in May to cover the tune with his full band, and last night (June 20), he performed “The Middle” live in concert for the first time. 

Zedd shared a clip the performance (originally captured by Billboard) on his Instagram Story, ficially smacking it with the Zedd seal approval. We think you'll like it, too. 

Check out Payne's live cover shared by Zedd and the original BBC performance in the clips below.
