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:
