He definitely had the best year ever.

Posted on

1. When he hung out with Kit Harington and Zach Braff and got to stroke Jon Snow's delicate face.

2. And when he was given Jon Snow's sword and he lost his damn mind.

3. It was such a good year he even got to star in Bridget Jones's Baby.

Okay, so it was an honorary doctorate for his “outstanding contribution to music” from University Campus Suffolk, but still.

5. It was the year he played hide the banana with Ruby Rose.

MTV

15. And particularly when Taylor Swift said this to him.

16. But it was also a year full of kindness from Ed. Like when he surprised this couple and sang at their wedding.

Like so.

17. And he also helped Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson get engaged.

Ed travelled for five hours on his day off to help Rixton’s Jake Roche propose to the singer. Aww.

18. Only for a small chicken-based fee.

@Jake_Rixton my absolute pleasure. Thanks for the KFC

19. In fact, Ed spent the year helping people get engaged.

Proposal at the @edsheeran concert #shesaidyes

On this occasion Ed noticed a guy in the crowd holding up a sign so he invited him up on stage with his girlfriend. The guy then gave a proposal speech filled with Ed Sheeran puns before getting down on one knee.

20. Because he's the nicest man alive.

proposal tonight in austin, i might've welled up, but don't say anything - https://t.co/3fGty49rNX

21. He helped this guy propose to his girlfriend who’s battling brain cancer.

@edsheeran she said yes thanks for the front row tic you made her wish come true #fightCancer

Ed gave the couple front row tickets to one of his shows and stopped his performance of “Thinking Out Loud” to congratulate the newly engaged couple.

22. And sent a personalised message to another couple for their wedding.

23. All while being single and third-wheeling like a boss.

25. Although he didn't save all of his surprises for weddings. Ed Overheard this fan singing his song in a mall and surprised her with a duet. <3

The full video is ADORABLE.

26. And visited a fan in hospital after they couldn’t make it to his concert.

27. But this was probably the best treat of all. People paid $2 to see 30 seconds of him in the creepiest peep show ever.

28. It was also a year he reminded us how goddamn talented he is. Here he is covering Drake’s “Know Yourself” like an absolute god.

Video: Ed Sheeran covering "Know Yourself" at his show last night in Toronto.

29. And this rendition of Beyoncé's "Drunk In Love" is crazy good.

30. In 2015 he met his waxwork and got excited when he realised it had a lazy eye and a big bulge.

31. And treated us to a baby photo bonanza in the video for “Photograph”.

32. He spent some of his time giving an inspirational speech to children who suffer from stuttering.

Ed gave an talk at the American Institute for Stuttering's Freeing Voices Changing Lives Benefit Gala in New York.

He told children who suffer from a stutter:

Embrace your weirdness. From a stuttering point of view, don't treat it as an issue. Work through it and get the treatment you want to get, but don't ever see it as a plight on your life. Carry on pushing forward.

33. And let us know that he has, indeed, streaked or skinny-dipped before.

34. And now he's "buggering off for a bit" so who knows if we'll see much of him in 2016 😢
