Ed Sheeran wins two Grammys in sparse night for United Kingdom artists

Lora Ball | 30 January, 2018, 11:08

Sheeran's ÷ (Divide) is nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and his single "Shape Of You" is up for Best Pop Solo Performance.

Sheeran's "Shape of You" was announced as the victor of the Best Pop Solo Performance award, and his third album ÷ (Divide) snagged Best Pop Vocal Album at the star-studded ceremony held at Madison Square Garden in NY.

The 26-year-old British singer-songwriter skipped the 60 Annual GRAMMY Awards on Sunday, but still managed to pick up two big awards. Sheeran's "Shape of You" beat out Lady Gaga's "Million Reasons", Kelly Clarkson's "Love So Soft", Pink's "What About Us" and - most upsetting - Kesha's "Praying".

"My outlook on it is, it's just - some years you have your year, and some years you don't have your year", Sheeran explained.

Chelsea target Fernando Llorente as alternative to Olivier Giroud

Zayn Malik's nomination alongside Taylor Swift, for the Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack I Don't Wanna Live Forever, had been nominated for best song written for visual media but the award went to Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, for How Far I'll Go, from the film Moana.

"That's where the validation comes from", he said. "I'd rather have, like, a lifetime of people coming up to me, saying like, "This song affects me in this way, in a positive way, 'This song was my wedding song, ' 'This song was my first kiss" than anything else". Many were of the view that the award should have gone to Kesha instead.

Sheeran is now the victor of four total GRAMMY Awards and nine additional nominations.

Here are some of the rather furious responses Ed Sheeran winning the Grammy garnered on the micro-blogging site.
