Ed Sheeran Knockouts with Implausible MMVA Performance [WATCH VIDEO]
The 25th MuchMusic Video Awards was held on Sunday, June 15, 2014. Sisters Kylie and Kendall Jenner hosted the said event. One of the most notable performances was that of Ed Sheeran. He mesmerized the crowd with his song number “Sing.” The singer was an opening performer and also a presenter at the event. Read on for Movie News Guide’s (MNG) MMVAs report to know more about the ceremony.
The 24-year-old British took the stage right at the beginning of the MuchMusic Video Awards 2014 and absolutely captivated the multitude with his guitar playing skills.
“Sing” was undeniably one of the songs of the summer, and fans just loved to watch Ed Sheeran rock the arena in Toronto. Ed’s performance was so profound that it kept reverberating in a listener’s mind even days after the event.
In fact, a hilarious anecdote was associated with the song “Sing” at the MMVAs. The song had a straight link with last year’s MMVA host, Park Jae-sang, better known by his stage name Psy. He is a South Korean singer, songwriter, rapper, dancer, record producer and television personality.
“Basically the ‘Sing’ video is based on a night out I had with him, and loads of his Korean mates,” stated Ed on Live From MTV.
Ed went out on a night out with Psy, and everyone was wearing a Psy mask in a Korean restaurant. It was too difficult to recognize Psy, but Ed eventually found out who Psy was. That incident inspired Ed to create the “Sing” video with all the dancing and karaoke. Now Psy also created his own adaptation of the song, a remix that Ed affirmed “the coolest thing” he had ever listened to.
