Ed Sheeran must’ve wanted to set his BRITs Award performance apart from his GRAMMYs show. Booked to play “Shape Of You” at both shows, Ed decided against the loop-heavy solo act to bring an entire band complete with backup singers to the stage on Wednesday night.
But even that wasn’t enough for Ed, who also brought out English rapper Stormzy for a featured verse. Ed was already rocking by the time Stormzy took the stage. The added elements gave the “Castle On A Hill” singer a chance for a big finish on one of his new singles.
Ed teased the performance ahead of the show on the red carpet, where he said, “I think it’s going to be the best thing that I’ve done at the BRITs.”
Watch Ed’s performance with Stormzy below and decide if it lives up to his hype.
