Ed Sheeran was honoured with the Global Success award at the BRITs last night.
Elton John sent Ed a video message from Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas, to introduce his 'dear friend'.
People were quick to notice that Elton didn't quite pronounce Ed's name right..

Elton John just called Ed Sheeran "Ed Sheer-ahn" so he should accept it as his given name #BRITs2018

Has everyone been saying Ed Sheeran's surname wrong or does Elton John not know his name?
