Did Not Lip-sync At Glastonbury Concert, Says Ed Sheeran


Singer Ed Sheeran cleared the air that he did not resort to lip-syncing at his Glastonbury concert after he was accused of performing the show on backing tracks.

The 26-year-old took to Twitter to clarify that his gig was live, just like all his other stage performances.

"Never thought I'd have to explain it, but everything I do in my live show is live, it's a loop station, not a backing track. Please Google," wrote Sheeran.

The "Shape Of You" hitmaker's comments came in after some viewers present at the show were left confused when they heard the sound of the guitar while the singer did not play anything.


This led to some Twitter users on social media accusing Sheeran of using backing tracks during his live performance, where he sang his hits such as "Thinking Out Loud", "You Need Me, I Don't Need You" and introduced "Galway Girl".

"Come on Ed Sheeran, where is the live band? Backing tracks! #live music!" wrote one of the followers.

While another tweeted, "Did Ed Sheeran really 'play' Glastonbury last night? Sure he sang (pretty well) over a backing tape but did he 'play' anything? Guitar? No."
