Ed Sheeran Performs ‘Bloodstream’ at the 2015 BRIT Awardsby Ali Szubiak | PopCrush
If you weren’t an Ed Sheeran fan before today (Feb. 25), well, our first question is what is wrong with you, but also we implore you to check out his 2015 BRIT Awards performance of “Bloodstream.”
Ed took the stage — after winning the BRIT Award for Best Male Solo Artist no less — with just his guitar and his voice. Well, he also had his trusty looper pedal on him, which is pretty much part of his signature performance at this point in time. He delivered a totally unreal version of “Bloodstream” — which, by the way, he reworked with the band Rudimental and released as a single — that was insanely dynamic.
He had a really cool backdrop set up behind him. It was a mishmash of rushing red lights, that went perfectly with the speed of the song. Using his looper pedal in the greatest way possible, he was able to overlay his vocals and guitar parts which really made for a fantastic demonstration of his skill as a musician. There’s really something to be said for an artist who can provide a performance as good as this one was using only a guitar, his vocals and a pedal. At one point, Ed gets really into the song and his voice gets hoarse, but it totally adds to the track in an amazing way. We’re seriously obsessed.
Ed Sheeran, you are perfection.
