Ed Sheeran covers Iggy Azalea
25 Jan 2015 17:05
Ed Sheeran covered Iggy Azalea's Fancy at last night's Whelan's VH1 gig and it would seem the Australian star is a fan.
-
Sheeran, who continued playing at Whelan's after the live VH1 Storytellers show had finished, delighted the crowd with a number of covers, including Don McClean, Justin Timberlake and Iggy Azalea.
-
He started his tribute section with McClean's Vincent telling the crowd that he had chosen the song specially for this gig as it meant an awful lot to him. He even made a special request for the excited audience to remain quiet during the song – which they respected – you could have heard a pin drop throughout his emotional performance.
-
Next up, Sheeran weaved his smash hit song Sing with Justin Timberlake's Senorita much to the crowd's delight. The noise levels hit the roof once again as everyone sang every word back to the 23-year-old star. Sheeran explained that he wrote this song to sound like his own football anthem. He added he felt he hadn't written a song that people could dance to and hoped that Sing would make up for that.

Later in his set, Sheeran broke into Iggy Azalea's smash hit Fancy which sent the crowd into a frenzy. RTÉ TEN tweeted Azalea, which she favoured. We'd love to see a Sheeran and Azalea duet in the future!
