Ed Sheeran Dresses up as Little Orphan ‘Annie’ on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’
In an attempt to top the rivaled Peacock Network, Kimmel announced that ABC will air a live production of the 1982 Broadway musical Annie on November 3. The host continued by treating the audience to a spoofed preview of the reboot by calling out British redhead Ed Sheeran.
The “A Team” singer, who was in Los Angeles for a leg of U.S. X tour, stepped out in a red velvet dress with a stuffed replica of the little orphan’s dog Sandy on a skateboard. As he began to belt out the musical’s famed song “Tomorrow,” the 23-year-old immediately stopped and said “I can’t do this” and walked offstage.
“I think she’s a fantastic artist,” he said. “I think she’s got a great voice, writes great songs.”
While at Kimmel, Ed also performed “Don’t” and “Sing” on the outdoor stage. Check out those performances:
