Watch Ed Sheeran Perform ‘Little Things’ Live

Ed Sheeran recently performed at Le Trianon in Paris, where he surprised the crowd with an acoustic performance of One Direction‘s ‘Little Things.’

Although fans traditionally scream and sing along to a track they love, Sheeran wanted to do it differently this time around. “I want to see how quiet we can get the room, and I want to sing it totally acoustic, if that’s cool,” he said.

On the first attempt, the 21-year-old stepped away from the mic and began strumming the initial chords to the song, but when he sang the first words, the crowd burst out yelling and laughing. “Or, I could not play the song,” Sheeran joked. The friendly threat worked, and he was able to sing the ballad in a completely silent room.

Music fans know the song as a 1D cut, and the latest single from the boy band, but the British singer-songwriter originally penned the tune, which is included on One Direction’s chart-topping sophomore album, ‘Take Me Home.’

Last week, ‘Little Things’ took the No. 1 spot on the U.K. singles chart, beating out Bruno Mars‘ ‘Locked Out of Heaven’ and Little Mix’s ‘DNA,’ which came in at No. 2 and No. 3, respectively.
