The surprise performance went down a treat as fans sung praises for the artists, branding the performance the best of the evening.

People called for the Shape Of You remix to be released officially while others shared confusion over why it was not Yxng Bane – who starred in an impressive remix of the song last month – to join Ed on stage.
Nah I really enjoyed that Ed/Stormzy mash up. Can you make that a bonus track on the album please? @edsheeran @Stormzy1— Chris Sharp (@TheRealCSharp) February 22, 2017
