Ed Sheeran has arrived at the 2017 MTV VMAs!
Sheeran was dressed in his typical casual fashion, wearing a pair of slacks with a blue t-shirt under a collared button-down. He finished off his look with a pair of sneakers.
The crowd went wild, filling the air with screams as Sheeran walked on the blue carpet, posing for a few photos.
Later on in the evening, Sheeran will be performing. The “Shape of You” singer is nominated for three Video Music Awards this year. The music video for his hit single, “Shape of You,” is nominated for Best Pop Video, while “Castle on a Hill” is nominated for Best Cinematography. Sheeran is also nominated for Artist of the Year, going up against Kendrick Lamar, Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, Lorde, and the Weeknd.
Sheeran has only won one MTV Video Music Award in his career. It was back in 2014 when he took home the Moon Man for “Sing” featuring Pharrell Williams.
Earlier this summer, Sheeran made a cameo appearance on Game of Thrones. He received some pretty harsh criticism and ended up deleting his Twitter account. However, he recently reactivated his account. Even still, his last tweet was on July 17. Perhaps he’s anticipating a win at the VMAs tonight and plans on posting a status. Fans will be keeping their eyes on his account all night!
Below are some photos and videos of Sheeran arriving at the VMAs.
