The 'Lego House' singer reveals his concerns ahead of this weekend's event at the Staples Center.

Ed Sheeran has spoken about having sleepless nights worrying about his upcoming Grammy Awards performance with Sir Elton John this weekend.

The 'You Need Me, I Don't Need You' singer told US station Mix 106.5 that he has nightmares where the legendary musician changes the song they're performing on stage.

He said: "I went to sleep worrying about the Grammys... Like what happens if I win and what happens if I don't? And what happens if my voice cracks when I'm singing?"

The British star continued: "I fell asleep just thinking about it and had this really odd dream. I'm doing the duet with Elton at the Grammys and I had this dream where we decided not to play the song we were going to play and we were going to play this other traditional song."

"I forgot to give him the piano reference and he just didn't play," the ginger-haired star added. "Everyone was really confused and I got told off. I hope it isn't a pre-warning to what is actually going to happen!" 

The singer is also nominated for Song Of The Year on the night and told MTV News this week that he thinks the prize should go to Fun. with their smash hit 'We Are Young'.

Other stars set to take to the stage this Sunday night (10th February) include the likes of Justin Timberlake, Rihanna and Taylor Swift.

Ed Sheeran will also be heading out on tour with country singer Taylor from next month and continues to work on his new studio album.
