Just Ed Sheeran with his trusty acoustic guitar and a loop pedal, throwing his all into a stunning performance, that entertained and enthralled the vast sea of people. Raw talent at it's very best. Watching last night, I felt like I wanted to compare him to a magician, because I couldn't second guess what he was going to pull out of the bag next. A visually breathtaking performance.
