There is not one single song that exists out there in the world that Ed Sheeran couldn’t take and transform into pure freaking magic — just listen to his cover of Christina Aguilera‘s “Dirrty.” It’s almost like he is absolute perfection and we should be bowing at his feet.
The “Thinking Out Loud” crooner stepped into BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge (of course) armed with an acoustic guitar, a keyboardist and a couple of backup singers, who all worked together to produce what is undoubtedly one of our favorite Ed Sheeran covers of all time. (His rendition of Beyonce’s “Drunk in Love” will forever be number one.)
If there was one performance that showcases Ed’s triple threat-ness — that is, he’s a killer guitarist, unbelievable singer (that voice) and fast-spittin’ rapper — it’s this one. He seamlessly (and simultaneously) slams it on the acoustic guitar while flaunting his powerhouse vocals. And when he transitions from singing about gettin’ “dirrty” to rapping the heck out of Redman’s verse? Get out of here, Ed Sheeran. Are you even real? Is it possible that so much talent can exist in one guy?
Sheerios, feast your eyes on Ed Sheeran’s cover of Christina Aguilera’s “Dirrty” in the video above. And did we mention that he also did the weather? Because you can listen to him talk about lip balm and “pink cheeks” right here. Swoon.
