Imagine Dragons sure know how to get a hometown crowd going!

The Grammy Award-winning band, who hail from Las Vegas, riled up the crowd on Saturday at the Life Is Beautiful Festival right in downtown Las Vegas with an incredible performance of their hits -- and an amazing cover of "500 Miles" from The Proclaimers.

Lead vocalist Dan Reynolds shouted to the crowd how thankful he was to be back in his own neck of the woods and regaled everyone with stories of doing gigs around Sin City before they "even deserved any press." In honor of their prodigal return, he told the crowd they wanted to perform one of the "first cover songs they ever learned." Enter, "500 Miles," the catchy, MTV Music Award-winning song from 1988.

Check out the snippet from their performance below:

Imagine Dragons scored the final performance at Saturday's Life Is Beautiful Festival, however they were hardly the only big stars on tap. Heavyweights from Snoop Dogg to Future Islands to Duran Duran also rocked out at the festival, with Snoop doing an incredible cover of his own to House of Pain's 1999 hit "Jump Around."
