Is there anything that this guy can do wrong?! He’s the adorable guy next door with a voice that is tha bomb, and just when you thought Ed Sheeran was your typical British crooner, he goes on and does the Redman rap in Christina Aguilera’s hit track ‘Dirrty’.
The Yorkshire born star was performing a cover of the original track in the BBC Radio 1 lounge after the song he was originally meant to perform was censored by the show’s producers, which is a bit of an irony as ‘Dirrty’ is one of the raunchiest songs of the early noughties.
Ed Sheeran performing ‘Dirrty’ is not a combination that is even supposed to work (Ed was 11 when this song came out in 2002 and Christina Aguilera was sassy and flawless in this track)), but what’s even more amazing about this performance – apart from his ability to make a naughty song sound PG, is that he only had 24 hours to rehearse this piece.
Well done Ed.
For your comparison, here’s Christina’s original track.
