Ed Sheeran Was Roasted Twice On The Late Late Toy Show

Ed Sheeran Was Roasted Twice On The Late Late Toy Show

It wouldn't be the Late Late Toy Show without a surprise appearance from a celebrity and this year Ed Sheeran was one of those who stepped up to the plate.

Sheeran appeared to sing his song 'Leave Your Life' with the Toy Show choir - but it appeared one of the children in the choir wasn't the biggest fan of his music.

Toy Show kids shoot down Ed Sheeran

Ed Sheeran made his second Toy Show appearance on Friday night, as he sang with the Toy Show choir in a surprise appearance. He closed the song out with a beautiful duet with one of the choir members, Hayley, and praised her when he spoke to Ryan Tubridy afterwards.

It was one of the other choir members, however, who brought the biggest laugh of the night. When host Ryan Tubridy asked Sheeran what he thought of his backing vocalists for the night, Sheeran jokingly revealed that one of them had told him back stage that he was not a fan of his single 'Bad Habits'.

The young boy then hilariously shouted to Sheeran:

I've just heard it about 100 billion times!

It's rare that you get a chance to sing with one of the biggest artists in the world, and it's certainly rare that you get a chance to call their music overplayed.

 

That wasn't all for Ed Sheeran. After an ad break, he returned to take part in a game with two of the show's participants, Jamie and Cobin, who he recognised from a Cork rap group. When he asked the two to perform one of their raps, he offered a beat to support them - but was politely declined by the two of them.

Only on the Late Late Toy Show could an act like Ed Sheeran appear and be shot down by two children in the same night - though it must be said that he was a class act throughout, and added an extra bit of magic to the night, especially for those in the Toy Show choir.

In similarly classic Toy Show style, there was a ticket for Sheeran's upcoming Irish tour for every member of the Toy Show choir.

The annual Toy Show appeal raised an astonishing €3,347,912 for children's charities around Ireland, on a special night when Christmas was truly kicked off across the country.
