We always dream about what we would say if we were to ever meet our idols. But little Kai was left tongue tied when he unexpectedly found himself face to face with his idol, Ed Sheeran, while performing on ‘The Ellen Show’.
Kai is an 8-year-old singer who has been starring in videos on YouTube since he was a tiny baby. As he has grown up, he has demonstrated his passion for singing in his home videos of him singing along to his favourite artists. His adorable and expressive performances have earned him an army of fans, including Ellen DeGeneres herself.
Kai has appeared on her show numerous times over the years to perform for the live audience. His favourite artist is Bruno Mars and he has sung several of his songs on the show, but he has sometimes extended to other artists such as Katy Perry and now, Ed Sheeran.
As Kai stands to sing Ed Sheeran‘s hit song, ‘Thinking Out Loud’, he has no idea about the surprise that awaits him.
Singing away, Kai closes his eyes to really concentrate on feeling the song; he certainly likes to sing and perform like nobody is watching. But unbeknownst to him, a special guest has been sat backstage listening to him and wanted to come out and make an appearance.
As Ed Sheeran sneaks out on stage and perches on the chair behind him, Kai has absolutely no idea that his hero is behind him. The look on his face when he turns around and discovers Ed is so funny and heartwarming. He acts exactly like we would if we met our favourite celebrity… we would be dumbstruck!
Watch the hilarious clip for yourself to see the whole brilliant scene. What a special moment for Kai – I’m sure it’s one he will never forget.
