While Ed Sheeran released his stunning Perfect Duet with Beyonce more than a year ago, the two superstars have never performed the song live together … until now!
The magical moment happened at the Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 in South Africa - honouring Nelson Mandela – and the musical pair absolutely blew the stadium-sized crowd of nearly 100,000 people away with their rendition of the song.
The stripped back version of the song featured just Ed Sheeran on his acoustic and their beautiful harmonies, at timed backed by backing singers.
And well, it was just perfect!
Although Perfect Duet – which is a reworking of Ed’s Divide ballad Perfect – marks the first official collaboration between the duo, this isn’t the first time they have performed live together.
At the 2015 Global Citizen Festival, Ed joined Beyonce for an acoustic version of her hit track, Drunk In Love.
