Prepare to fall in love in 3... 2... 1...
Ever since Wednesday 22nd February, we've spent days of our lives just re-watching Ed Sheeran's amazing surprise collaboration with Stormzy, as they performed current Big Top 40 number one song 'Shape Of You (Remix)'.
So Roman Kemp did us all a solid and got Ed Sheeran in to perform some of the best tracks from his album '÷', and he even brought the 'Big For Your Boots' grime star along too. This performance of 'Shape Of You' is simply incredible.
With Ed being Ed, there was no surprise when he put on one hell of a show. Stood in front of a huge ÷ logo and a massive wall of lights, he performed a breathtaking set, including recent hits like 'How Would You Feel' and a jaw-dropping cover of Hailee Steinfeld & Grey's huge hit, 'Starving'.
The red-haired legend also managed to recreate his huge backing vocals using pedals on the floor, just in case you needed more evidence that he's one of the most talented singer-songwriters out there.
Ed exclusively explained that this track was inspired by his girlfriend, who flew back to his hometown from New York for a festival where the couple rekindled their romance. As she was in the taxi leaving to head back to NY, Sheeran - being the dream that he is - wrote her a song for her to listen to. It wasn't until the last minute when he realised he probably should put it on his studio album!
Ed's third studio album '÷' is out now and you can grab your copy on Apple Music here.
