If we can believe any videos on YouTube anymore, then Ed Sheeran surprised a fan who was singing his hit song "Thinking Out Loud" for an impromptu duet.

The fan, 13-year-old Sydney Bourbeau, seems pretty chill about the whole thing. It almost seems like she wishes she could keep singing by herself. But maybe she was just scared that a viral video was happening to her. Who knows how any of us will react when it inevitably happens to us?

Bourbeau told E!:

"I had just finished taking my microphone out of the stand, so I thought someone was just coming up to grab the stand or fix something. I realized it was him after he came up the stairs on the stage, and I freaked! He came over and hugged me and I wanted to just cry and talk to him, but I realized he wanted to come sing his song with me!"

She also said Sheeran is her "favorite male artist" and that after the performance, she looked for him but couldn't find him. Thankfully his manager later reached out and invited her to come to a concert and sit front row center.


These videos always make me wonder if artists ever forget the words to their own songs when they suddenly decide to do an on-the-spot performance. This is the kind of question that keeps me up at night. And that is the kind of video I would love to see.
