Ed Sheeran’s Last Minute Grammy Performance Will Blow You Away

With his year away from the public eye over, Ed Sheeran is making an incredible comeback and demonstrating his talent wherever and whenever he can. We know Ed always gives it his all, but his outstanding performance at the Grammy Awards was absolutely jaw-dropping.

What’s more, the ginger star only made the announcement for the performance seven hours before it happened – this was also not even 24 hours after he’d made an appearance on Saturday Night Live. With all things considered, we wouldn’t have been surprised if the performance had seemed just a little bit rough and unpolished. But as it turns out, Ed absolutely blew this notion out of the water anyway.

It was a complete throwback to his origins with the loop pedal. He performed solo using an acoustic guitar, a keyboard, and a mic or two. You can take a look at the performance in all its glory here:

Even though his addition was last-minute, he was the focal point of the Grammys for a lot of fans anyway. Twitter users were eager as ever to show their support and to shower their favourite in praise:

Thanks, Ed! This was everything we didn’t even know we wanted so badly.

TEST: Can You Recognise These 2016 Albums With Their Titles Removed?

Let’s be real, 2016 has been pretty diabolical. But whether you enjoyed them or not, there have been some pretty huge albums dropped this year. Can you recognise them without their titles, though?

Beyonce’s album caused quite a stir, which it is safe to say was fully intended. It provoked a conversation about important issues and showed her fans where she stood on the topic of black lives.

Lady Gaga released an incredible new album, and it clearly made an impact because I kept seeing ‘Joanne’ art sprayed onto the pavements during my trip to Chicago!

And then some of these album covers you should probably recognise just because of how weird they are…

People have been sharing their top 2016 albums on Twitter, what are yours?

TEST: How Well Do You REALLY Know The “Mean Girls” Movie?

Everyone remembers the movie Mean Girls. So many of its quotes are used in popular culture, so even the two people who haven’t watched it at least know that on Wednesdays, we wear pink.

While there has been many a rumour about a Mean Girls sequel, none have yet to come to fruition.

Earlier this year, there was talk of Tina Fey having a ‘Mean Girls Musical’ in the works, which was said to feature “more classic, Broadway-style music than pop-skewing, Bring It On: The Musical-like songs”. When Fey appeared on an episode of Watch What Happens Live, she spoke about the plot – “We haven’t finished it yet, but it’s close — yes, pretty close”.

Regardless of whether of not the Mean Girls franchise does continue, in whatever form, how well do you really know the original?

Only A True Fan Will Remember Which Houses These 29 Harry Potter Characters Were In

Harry Potter has been around since I could remember, I don’t remember a time where there weren’t any Harry Potter books in the bookstore, or anything vaguely Harry Potter related on my newsfeed. To say that the franchise is a huge success would be the understatement of the year.

So you think you’re a Harry Potter fan? You may be right, but do you have what it takes to be a true Harry Potter Super Fan? It’s time to sort out the brightest Wizards and Witches of our age from the mediocre muggles.

It’s time to test your Harry Potter knowledge by identifying the Hogwarts Houses these 29 Harry Potter characters belonged to. Do you know which House Merlin and Rita Skeeter belonged in when they were at Hogwarts School of Withcraft and Wizardry?

I like to think myself as a pretty big Harry Potter fan. I’ve fell in love with the books when I was eleven, and I watch at least one Harry Potter film a month, and even I struggled to get more than 13 (turns out I’m a really, really bad fan).

This quiz will determine if you’re the Head of Year, or just in desperate need of a Remembrall. So, let’s see if you can beat that score and become a true fan of Harry Potter. Scared? Well you should be.
