Sheeran also addressed Lopez’s query about whether the ex-girlfriend he wrote the song “Don’t” about has given him any feedback.
“I think it’s all good,” Sheeran told Lopez before jokingly checking his texts to say she’d just wrote to let him to know Lopez looked cute.
Sheeran continued his flirtatious nature with the audience, strumming through hits like “Lego House” and mashing up “Don’t” with Chris Brown’s “Loyal.”
"I'm generally a happy person, my songs just tend to be a bit down," he mused while introducing new track "Thinking Out Loud."

Then, armed only with his guitars and looping pedal, Sheeran held the crowd in the palm of his hand, leaving them singing the outro to “Sing,” which sits at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100.
