Watch: First Aid Kit perform "America" for Paul Simon

Paul Simon Polar Prize

It has to be a little awkward when multiple cameras are fixed on you just to capture your reaction of a band covering one of your tunes that is over 40 years old. Of course, Paul Simon handled it like the seasoned music legend he is and gave a nice little standing ovation at the conclusion of First Aid Kit's performance of "America". It all went down last night during the Polar Music Prize Award Ceremony at the Stockholm Concert Hall in Sweden.
