Ed Sheeran covered Christina Aguilera's Dirrty and everyone lost it

Even Christina herself was impressed.

WHAT CAN’T ED Sheeran do at this stage?

Fresh from announcing his Croke Park gig for this summer (with tickets on sale NOW here), he pitched up to BBC Radio 1′s Live Lounge and pulled off a cover of Christina Aguilera’s 2002 classic Dirrty that has everyone talking. Here it is in full, for your viewing pleasure:

Even Christina Aguilera thought it was a pretty epic version, responding directly to Ed with this

Of course, as with everything he does these days, the cover was met with near universal, hysterical acclaim

Even people who haven’t heard the original are loving it

Seriously, nobody knows what he has planned next – but we’re pretty sure it will be a phenomenon, whatever it is.
