The 'A Team' singer-songwriter won his first two BRIT Awards as well as performing live at the O2 Arena ceremony.
Ed Sheeran was the star of the BRIT Awards this year after he picked up two of the four awards he was nominated for.
The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' singer-songwriter picked up both Best British Male and Best British Breakthrough at the O2 Arena awards show, as well as taking to the stage for an emotional live performance.
Ed won his first ever BRIT Awards early on in the show after he was named Best British Male by guest presenter Plan B. The 'Drunk' singer won over the likes of Professor Green, James Morrison, Noel Gallagher and James Blake, and admitted he was shocked by the win.
"I obviously didn't think I'd get this one so I just want to thank my family who are here tonight, my friends, my fans, every single promoter that's ever booked me, every single radio DJ that's ever played me, and my label. I'm really bad at this, thank you," Ed said during his Best Male acceptance speech.
The 'A Team' singer also took to the O2 stage during the BRITs 2012 show for a live performance of his 2011 hit single 'Lego House'. After finishing his set Ed appeared visibly moved by the audience's overwhelmingly positive reception.
Ed's BRITs success continued after he was presented with the coveted award for Best British Breakthrough. The singer was nominated in the hotly contested category alongside the likes of Jessie J and Emeli Sande, and graciously accepted the award from presenters Nicole Scherzinger and footballer Cesc Fabregas..
Although 'The A Team' singer missed out on winning Best British Album and Best British Single, Ed described the evening as "probably one of the best nights of my life".
