Answer: Ed Sheeran

Answer: Radiohead

It also charted in various countries, hitting top twenty in Belgium and on the U.S. Alternative Airplay chart.

The video was also nominated for Best Music Video. The video is black and white and features the lead singer Thom Yorke "dancing." It created a ton of interest because Yorke is not at all a dancer and is seen moving erratically, shaking and rocking out.
