Ed Sheeran (L) and Khalid attend the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards at The Forum on Aug. 27, 2017 in Inglewood, Calif.

Khalid brought out a very special guest during his headlining show at London’s O2 Arena on Tuesday (Sept. 17): none other than Ed Sheeran. To mark the occasion, the superstar duo performed their hit song “Beautiful People” live for the first time. The duet, which served as the third single on Sheeran’s latest studio album No.6 Collaborations Project, peaked at No. 17 on the Billboard Hot 100 last week and currently sits at No. 23.

While Sheeran recently wrapped two-plus years of near-constant touring for his 2016 album Divide -- and vowed to take an extended break from the road  -- Khalid just kicked off the European leg of his Free Spirit World Tour earlier this month to promote his No. 1 album of the same name.
