Now, Kai, the 8-year-old singer who's frequented The Ellen Show, has reappeared to serenade DeGeneres with another one of Sheeran's hits, "Thinking Out Loud."
Midway through Kai's passionate performance, Sheeran himself quietly walks on stage and sits quietly behind the mini superstar, smiling and clapping along until the music stops.
"I was literally just watching it in the dressing room," Sheeran tells Kai with regards to his performance. Of course, that meant he had to come out and say hello.
