It’s not surprising that Ed Sheeran took the stage right at the beginning of the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards and completely blew us away with his guitar playing, beautiful self!
Well Ed Sheeran‘s new hit song, “Sing” is definitely one of the songs of the summer — and we were so excited to see him take the stage outside in Toronto on June 15. After signing a ton of fans’ arms on the red carpet of the MMVAs, he headed inside to open up the show! What did you think of his performance?
Ed Sheeran’s Performance At MuchMusic Video Awards
Ed’s performance was definitely a great note to start out the night on — he took the stage with “Sing,” which now will be playing in our heads the rest of the night.
He had his guitar in hand while he looked into the fans’ eyes, completely serenading them!
It’s actually funny he did “Sing” at the MMVAs, since it has a direct connection to last year’s MMVA host, PSY.
“Basically the ‘Sing’ video is based on a night out I had with him, and loads of his Korean mates,” Ed said on Live From MTV. “I went out on this night out with Psy and everyone was wearing a Psy mask in a Korean restaurant and they were all Korean and all wearing a Psy mask and I didn’t know which one was Psy, I had no clue. I eventually found out who Psy was and he’s just a monster when it comes to…there’s this Korean drink called Soju and so anyway I had this night out and that’s what inspired the ‘Sing’ video with all the dancing and karaoke and stuff.”
Of course now Psy took on his own version of the song, a remix that Ed called “the coolest thing” he’s ever heard.
“Just before he came in here he texted me being like ‘question mark, question mark, question mark,’ so I need to find out what he means,” Ed added. Well, we hope to hear it!
