Ed Sheeran performs “Wayfaring Stranger” live on Jools Holland | TV Catch-Up

Trust me, Ed Sheeran is next. This “flame-haired guitar playing wiz” (word to SBTV’s Georgia) has the talent, the songs and the track record to match his colossal hype. This was by no means his best performance – it wasn’t even his best performance of “Wayfaring Stranger” (a song which I’ve seen him tear apart live firsthand), but nonetheless, Ed was impressive on Jools Holland‘s show, taking advantage of a high-profile platform that has recently showcased Jessie J, Adele and Maverick Sabre.

Ed’s phenomenal start to the week got even better when Zane Lowe crowned “The A Team”, Sheeran’s poignant tale of drug addiction, his ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on Tuesday. After a couple of years of gigging and building up tremendous buzz, it looks like everything’s finally coming together for this electrifying (and incredibly deserving) talent. Watch out for Ed, he’s going to go clear.
