Ed Sheeran was thrilled to be handed his his first ever Grammy by 'Superstition' hitmaker Stevie Wonder at the Los Angeles ceremony on Monday nigh (15.02.16)
Ed Sheeran was extremely "chuffed" to be handed a Grammy award by Stevie Wonder on Monday night (15.02.16).
The 24-year-old British pop superstar picked up his first ever prizes at the prestigious ceremony for Song of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for his track 'Thinking Out Loud'.
And Ed's joy at winning was multiplied by the fact Motown legend Stevie was the man who handed him his Song of the Year trophy.
During his acceptance speech on stage at The Staples Center in Los Angeles, Ed said: "If you would have told me 11, five, any age, that I'd receive an award from Stevie Wonder I'd be chuffed."
The flame-haired singer/songwriter also took a moment to share his awards joy with his family, who have been in the crowd at the Grammys every year Ed has attended and they always knew he'd win something eventually.
He added: "We wrote [this song] on a couch in my house after dinner. My parents have flown out to the Grammys for the last four years and every year they say 'maybe next year'."
Ed wasn't the only first time Grammy award winner.
Justin Bieber was honoured for his single 'Where Are Ü Now', which won Best Dance Recording alongside Skrillex and Diplo.
The 21-year-old heartthrob took to his Twitter account to thank fans for their support.
He wrote: "Beliebers.. We did it! I love you. Now get ready for the show. Not done yet. #GRAMMYs (sic)"
