Here are the two performances that were featured during last night’s iHeartRadio Awards in Los Angeles.
While Ed continues his promotional tour he stopped by The Edge in New Zealand to perform a couple songs including Lorde’s hit single “Royals” for some lucky fans then followed it up with a meet n greet. I’ve uploaded photos from the stop in our gallery.

Ed Sheeran popped by The Hits Radio last week and was taken on an Easter Ed Hunt.
Ed stopped by Free Radio to talk about his latest single “Sing”, working with Pharrell, BSB & more. Watch below.
When Ed Sheeran came to the Fresh studios last week to meet up with Jim & Kim to discuss his hot new single, “SING” that he co-wrote and produced with Pharrell, he also talked about how nervous he was to release the song and his pre-show jitters before his first experience on Saturday Night Live.
“Pharrell embodies soul and he’s such a groovy person, not like groovy, Austin Powers groovy, but even the way he speaks and puts songs across to you. Everything has a feel to it that makes you want to boogie a little bit,” said Sheeran.
Ed recalls being nervous about how his single would be received and expressing that concern to Pharrell over dinner. Their meal ended in a bet involving Pharrell’s famous hat and a drink.
“He made me a bet. We went out for dinner around a month ago and I was quite worried about ‘SING’ being the first single and how it would be taken and he was like, ‘Imma tell you this, Imma tell you this, ‘SING,’ that’s going to do a hundred thousand week one,’” said Sheeran.
Clearly, Ed lost that bet.
He was invited to play on Saturday Night Live and even though he was honored, his acting experience is limited so, again, he was a little nervous – although we found out that his impressions of Americans, specifically Pharrell and general New Yorkers are almost perfect. He says he’s pretty much learned everything from watching “The Sopranos,” so his accent is a little unsettling.
Ed Sheeran’s newest album is titled “X (Multiply)” and will be available everywhere on June 23rd.
