Ed Sheeran's Extraordinary 'Shape of You' Performance In 2017 Grammy Awards

Ed Sheeran gave an extraordinary performance in the 59th Grammy Awards evening with his brand new hit "Shape of You." In addition to that, he was also nominated for the Song of the Year award as a writer on Justin Bieber's hit "Love Yourself." So far he already has two Grammys for "Thinking Out Loud" in 2014.

According to Billboard, although Sheeran is a last-minute addition in the 2017 Grammy stage last February 12, 2017 and was only invited seven hours before the show, he closed the Grammy Awards with an extraordinary performance. Moreover, EW reported that not less than 24 hours before, he also performed "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill" on "Saturday Night Live in the opposite coast. Incredibly, he was still able to prepare an extraordinary surprise for Grammy.

However extraordinary Sheeran's "Shape of You" performance was, he still used his usual casual style. The 25-year-old British singer can easily amaze his audience with almost whatever he sing, from pop-punk to romantic songs. Even on the 2017 Grammy Awards, his appearance was casual, he wore jeans and a simple black t-shirt with HOAX written on it.

Sheeran performed "Shape of You" alone on the Grammy's stage and did everything from scratch. With the help of loop pedals, he made his catchy song sound huge and grand. Uproxx also added that Sheeran looped his own voice with the acoustic guitar and other instruments, he did not even wear in-ear monitors. Although the Grammy stage was very grand and the audience was very boisterous, Sheeran's charisma and talent managed to give an extraordinary and memorable performance.

Sheeran's extraordinary performance further explains why many people are so obsessed with him and his songs.  "Shape of You," after his several other hits, became Sheeran's first Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper. Even though it is a brand new song, it is still able to compete with other timeless Grammy-nominated songs that have been so familiar to our ears.
