Ed Sheeran got in the holiday spirit for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge on Tuesday (Dec. 12), covering the festive “Fairytale of New York” by Irish-British Celtic punk band The Pogue​s.

Anne-Marie, known for her power vocals on Sean Paul’s chart-topper “Rockabye,” provided a lovely counterpart in the duet by taking on the Kirsty MacColl section starting in the second verse.

This isn't the first time the two have linked up. In May, the red-headed singer joined Anne-Marie for an acoustic version of her song "Ciao Adios" before her Newcastle concert. 

Sheeran also performed his latest hit “Perfect,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 (dated Dec. 23) due largely to the recently released version featuring Beyoncé.
