Stormzy Performs “Shape of You” With Ed Sheeran at 2017 Brit Awards
Stormzy joined Ed Sheeran at the 2017 Brit Awards to perform a new version of the singer's track "Shape of You." Stormzy surprised fans at the O2 Arena by jumping in about halfway into the performance.
The two embraced once the song was done, with the rapper sharing his excitement for the moment on Twitter.
"One of the greatest days of my life thank you all love you all love you bro @edsheeran ❤️❤️❤️ #BRITs2017," Stormzy wrote.
