After making a brief appearance in Hamburg, Germany on Saturday, Ed Sheeran made a quick turnaround trip back to Los Angeles to perform a medley of his singles "Shape of You" and "Castle on the Hill" at the iHeartRadio Music Awards Sunday evening.
Sheeran opened his nine-minute set with a one-man band performance of "Shape of You," during which he looped his vocals with pedals and the marimba beats on a keyboard. After his solo performance, he was joined by a live band and backup singers for his impassioned delivery of the coming-to-age "Castle On The Hill."
Sheeran is fresh off the release of his third studio ÷ (Divide) album last Friday. The project, which also spawned his tracks "How Would You Feel (Paen)" and the Eminem-esque "Eraser," is expected to move over 300,000 units in the week ending in March 9, according to Billboard's forecast.
The 2017 iHeartRadio Music Awards broadcast live from the Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday (March 5). The ceremony, hosted by Ryan Seacrest, also saw performances by Bruno Mars, Big Sean, Shawn Mendes, Noah Cyrus, show opener Katy Perry, and others.
