Thu, May 1, 2014 9:16pm EST by 1 Comment

Ed Sheeran brought it back to basics at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on May 1, performing one song from his debut album, ‘+’, and one from his new album, ‘x’, playing in an intimate venue for maximum effect.

Ed Sheeran, 23, is about to release his much-anticipated 2nd studio album, and his performance at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on May 1 was as on point as we’ve ever seen him! He transitioned from one old song into a newer one so naturally that it almost felt like a mash-up! Read on for more about his performance at the Shrine Auditorium in LA!

Ed performed his very first single, “The A Team,” and then went right into “Don’t” — rumored to be about ex-girlfriend Ellie Goulding, an alleged cheater. We have to admit, however, that we were hoping to hear him perform his newest song “Sing!”

We won’t be too picky, however. He sounded great, but that’s no surprise! He’s a fantastic musician and live performer. What made his performance even more special was that he played in a tiny, intimate venue which was then broadcast live in the Shrine Auditorium, our living rooms, and our hearts.

It made sense for him to bring it back to basics by singing a golden oldie in the tiny venue he played in when his career was just beginning.

Ed is set to release to release his newest album, x (pronounced “multiply”), on June 23. “Sing” was released on April 7, and it did well on the U.S. charts — peaking at #13 on the Mainstream Top 40 — but, fun fact, it hit #1 in Sweden. The more you know! That said, however, it’s Ed’s highest-charting single in the U.S.

What did you think of Ed’s performance, HollywoodLifers? Do you wish he had performed “Sing?” Did you love that he played in such a tiny venue? Let us know!
