Ed Sheeran might have been one of the big winners at the Grammy Awards 2018 – but the flame-haired singer was a notable absentee.
After his name was read out to collect prestigious award including the best pop vocal album category & the best solo performance for number 1 single Shape Of You, announcers were actually forced to generally make Ed’s excuses and no winners speech was really provided.
Fans were really sad as they were unable to see Ed, who has also recently been engaged to his fiancée Cherry Seaborn, and they took it to social media to actually speculate on where he could be and where he should be.
“Congrats to Ed Sheeran tbh I think he was a no-show because he’s embarrassed or doesn’t want to in the POP music catergory,” guessed one.
While another added: “Ed Sheeran is actually a no-show. He should change his name to Ed Disappearin’”
Some even suggested that it was because his best-selling album Divide ‘ ÷’ hadn’t been nominated for the Album of the Year.
But before the speculation got wild, Ed Sheeran, stepped into it to clear up the rumors for himself.
Taking to Instagram, Ed revealed he had missed the star showbiz bash at New York’s Madison Square Garden simply because he actually had been asleep.
“Woke up to the news I won two Grammys last night. Thank you,” Ed wrote it on Instagram alongside a picture of his fluffy cat.
He then wrote that his pussycat was actually doing a ‘celebratory dance’ for him, and wrote “lots of love to everyone,” finished Ed.
