Ed Sheeran Forgets The Lyrics To His Song ‘What Do I Know?’ On Live TV

For Red Nose Day in the U.K., Ed Sheeran took to the stage for a live television performance to raise money for charity Comic Relief. The U.K. pop singer belted out his song “What Do I Know?” but it appeared his nerves got the better of him.

The “Shape of You” singer forgot the lyrics to the song partway through, and fans took to Twitter to point out the screw up. “@edsheeran little giggle when he fluffed his lines up, then his glasses steaming cause he's embarrassed. So cute. So talented #comicrelief,” tweeted @jodyylouise.

To ease his nerves, comedienne Miranda Hart ascended the stage to assuage the 26-year-old.

“What's going on is that I'm not sure that Ed knows the Comic Relief rules,” Miranda said.

“There's a silly rule, but I always stick by them, and what it is – is that it demands that the musical acts have to kiss with passion and considerable meaning the tallest host.”

Instead of Hart, it was comedian Greg Davies who swooped in with the smooch, planting one unexpectedly on Ed Sheeran.
