He’s certainly one of the country’s biggest rockers.
But the massive crowds at Scotland’s T In The Park music festival got an even bigger surprise when Hollywood star Will Smith jumped on stage to introduce Calvin Harris, who was the headlining act on Saturday night.
The Men In Black star took to the main stage before the DJ appeared in front of tens of thousands of people at Balado in Kinross-shire.
He’s the man: Will Smith made a surprise appearance at Scotland’s T In The Park music festival to introduce pop star Calvin Harris
Will, 45, told fans: ‘Ladies and gentleman, I present to you – Scotland’s own, Calvin Harris.’
The 30-year-old – a firm favourite with the crowd – opened by playing Under Control.
Revellers danced in the rain as he played for more than an hour, before Will joined him back on stage for the final song shouting: ‘Scotland, I love you.’
The Men In Black star rocked a blue jean jacket with black leather sleeves over a black T-shirt, and black leather jeans.

The set came after a performance from Paolo Nutini in which he saved his hit Last Request until the end, much to the delight of the audience.
Festival-goers earlier covered up in waterproof ponchos as heavy downpours descended while Pharrell Williams took to the main stage at the event, which has four stages.
The rain cleared up during his 60-minute set, which he closed with hit single Happy.
The Charlatans were welcomed back to the festival 18 years to the day they performed at the very first T In The Park in 1997.

The Stranglers, Katy B and Scottish band Twin Atlantic, James and Rudimental were also on the line-up.
Sunday, the final day of the event, will see Arctic Monkeys become the last act to play at the festival’s current home near Kinross.
Paul Weller, Jake Bugg, Kaiser Chiefs, Bastille and Franz Ferdinand are also included in the line-up bidding farewell to Balado.
The festival is moving to the Strathallan Castle estate in Perthshire next year.
