LAST NIGHT, ED Sheeran closed out Glastonbury with a 90-minute set on the Pyramid Stage.

Accompanied by nothing more than a guitar and a loop pedal, the singer played for a crowd of roughly 100,000 festival attendees, not to mention millions more watching from home.

Naturally it got people chatting on social media.

People were mighty impressed at the guts it took to perform on stage with nothing but a guitar.

Haters gonna hate, etc.

But that didn’t mean he was immune to slags.

“He’s like Jamie Oliver busking.”

*applause*

And this very specific insult.

Not everyone was a fan of Galway Girl.

I hate it.

Jo Whiley was a little… underwhelmed.

But for the most part, people absolutely loved it.

At one point, Ed Sheeran asked the crowd to wave their phones in the air… and people somehow had enough battery left to follow his instruction.

HOW?

Regrets, I’ve had a few…

At one point, Ed whipped out a Pride flag and people at home fell in love with him even more.

Finally, if you’re in need of some inspiration on this Monday morning, look at how far Ed Sheeran has come in six years.

2011: Singing tunes for showers. 2017: Headlining Glastonbury.

What a trajectory.
