Elton John's bizarre way of saying 'Ed Sheeran' has everyone in hysterics

Wait, what did he say?

Despite not even being in attendance, Elton John quickly began trending on Twitter last night during the Brit Awards thanks to his short but sweet appearance during the ceremony.

Yes, the singer made a brief appearance in a pre-recorded video with a message for one of the night's big winners.

Elton recorded the video to introduce the recipient of this year’s Global Success Award – Ed Sheeran – however, viewers were quickly distracted by his very weird pronunciation of the young singer’s name.

Elton spoke about his close relationship with Ed in the short clip, which left many viewers wondering why then he couldn’t pronounce Ed's name.


Yes, “Ed-She-Ran” quickly became the talking point of the night and nobody was really paying attention to Ed's speech after that.

And, of course, as with any of these odd moments, Twitter had a field day.

While Ed did take home the award for Global Success, he, unfortunately, lost out in all four of the categories he was nominated in – mainly losing Best Male Act to Stormzy.
