A round-up of the recently concluded BRIT Awards posts revealed that Sir Elton John mispronounced Ed Sheeran’s name.

That night, Sheeran lost out — of four nominations, he bagged only one, Global Success. John sent out a video message introducing his friend.

John, relaying his message from his residency at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, saw him pronounce Sheeran’s name as “Sh-Ran”.

Fans on social media had a ball of a time nit-picking. One fan wrote: “Elton John calling Ed Sheeran his friend and then pronouncing his name wrong is honestly the best thing that happened all night” or “If Elton is calling him it, we’re all calling him it.” “Has everyone been saying Ed Sheeran’s surname wrong or does Elton John not know his name?”, another posted.

And maybe, just maybe… Elton has been pronouncing Sheeran’s name wrong for quite a long time. Noted another fan, “Elton John pronounced @edsheeran as Ed Sheer-anne on @Beats1. what happened to Grammys ’13?”

The 38th BRIT Awards were held at London’s The O2 Arena last night (February 21). Stormzy and Dua Lipa took home big awards on the night.

Stormzy won British Male Solo Artist and Best British Album, as well as delivering a triumphant closing performance. Dua Lipa, meanwhile, took home Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act. Foo Fighters picked up Best International Group, their fifth BRIT Award to date. International Male Solo Artist went to Kendrick Lamar, beating Drake and Beck.
