The producer chats to Capital as he and Katy B play Coca-Cola's song for London 2012 in Hyde Park.
Mark Ronson and Katy B have performed at the concert to celebrate the Olympic Torch Relay Finale presented by Coca-Cola in London.
The pair took to the stage at Hyde Park to perform Coca‑Cola's song for London 2012, 'Anywhere In The World'.
Part of Coca‑Cola's Move to the Beat campaign, Mark travelled across the country to meet five UK Olympic hopefuls and record the sounds they made playing their sport.
Speaking to Capital FM ahead of his performance, he said it felt great to finally be able to perform the song live, but admitted he was nervous.
"It's been a long time coming. Especially since me and Katy did this Move to the Beat song. A year ago we started writing it, this will be the first time we actually perform it in front of people.
Asked about his nerves, Mark replied: "I do, definitely. You don't want to look out and see thousands of bored kids. You won't people to be feeling it."
