The 'A Team' singer-songwriter says he feels honoured to have been nominated for a BRIT in the first place.
Ed Sheeran has said he is just hoping everyone has "a good time" at the BRIT Awards tonight (21st February) and is not bothered whether he picks up any awards.
The 'Lego House' singer is nominated for four awards at tonight's ceremony, but says he just wants the event to be a "nice experience" for his family and friends
"I just want everyone to have a good time," Ed told Capital's showbiz reporter Kevin Hughes on the BRIT Awards red carpet today. "I've got a lot of family and friends coming tonight.
"I know that the local pub that I gigged in for a while are tuned in with the big screens tonight," Ed revealed. "I just want it to be quite a nice experience for everyone."
The 'A Team' singer admitted although he would love to win an award at tonight's BRITs ceremony, it is still a good "stepping stone" into British music just to be recognised in the first place.
Capital will be coming live from the BRIT Awards in London all day on Tuesday (21st February).
