- Ed Sheeran Outdoes Himself In The Kindness Stakes

Sir Elton has famously dueted with George Michael on ‘Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me’, Lady Gaga on the ballad ‘Hello Hello’ and Blue on a re-imagined version of ‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’, but his collaboration with Ed was a little more light-hearted.
Playing to the sold-out stadium crowd, the pair launched into a surprising rendition of legendary singer’s 1976 track, ‘Don’t Go Breaking My Heart’.
Elton originally released the cheesy hit, which reached the top of the UK singles chart, as a duet with Kiki Dee, though he later re-recorded it in a house style in the 1990s, featuring vocals from the ‘Glamazon’ herself, drag queen RuPaul.
The unexpected collaboration between Ed and Elton came as a surprise to the ‘Lego House’ singer’s fans, who were also treated to a performance of ‘Afire Love’ from the pair, a track from Ed’s chart-topping album, ‘x’.
Ed’s sold-out Wembley Stadiums made history earlier this year, when he became the first act to headline at the London venue without a backing band.
Noel Gallagher initially stated his disdain when it was revealed that Ed had sold out three dates at the stadium, claiming: “I don't think I can live in a world where that's even possible."
Luckily, Ed didn’t seem fazed by the remarks, responding on Twitter with a simple: “I do.”
He’ll be performing his final two dates on Saturday and Sunday night, and we have a feeling there could be some more guest appearances from legendary artists...
