The 'Lego House' star performed his biggest gig to date at Wembley today for Capital FM.
Ed Sheeran led the Wembley Stadium crowd through all of his biggest hits today this evening at the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2012.
The 21 year-old singer-songwriter headed out on stage shortly after good friend Jessie J wrapped her set, and kicked off his set with a performance of his recent hit single 'Drunk'.
"Have you guys had a good day to day? I'm happy to be here, this is my first time here at Wembley and my first time playing the Summertime Ball so thanks,"Ed told the crowd after then wrapping an energetic performance of 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You'. "This is my biggest gig to date."
Ed then revealed his set had been extended and announced he would next perform brand new single 'Small Bump', to rapturous applause from the 80,000 strong stadium audience.
Wearing a black t-shirt with a green long sleeve underneath, as well as ankle-grazer green trousers Ed gave an emotional rendition of the fan-favourite track, which is the latest release from his 2011 debut album '+'.
"You guys are wonderful! Thank you!" Ed told the audience. "I think it's time for a change of scenery to be honest. I'm going to come down the front.
"Since this is the biggest gig I've done I'd kind of like to utilise this crowd as a gospel choir," Ed continued, leading the fans through a series of "Oohs", before introducing his next song. "So Wembley, please sing the words as loudly as you can. This is 'Lego House'."
After performing 'Lego House' Ed added: "A year and a half ago I did not expect to be in this situation!"
The singer then headed straight into a performance of his debut single 'The A Team', with the Wembley Stadium crowd shouting all the worlds back at him.
After getting all the crowd to raise up a phone light for the final section of the song, Ed bowed out from the Summertime Ball stage to close his crowd-pleasing set.
