Shantay, you stay: Charli XCX lip-synched ‘Shape of You’... while wearing an Ed Sheeran drag costume

​Charli XCX lip-synched ‘Shape of You’… while wearing an Ed Sheeran drag​ costume

What can we say here but good lord above?

Well there’s a headline we never thought that we’d get to publish. Charli XCX has done a performance of ‘Shape of You’ while dressed up in drag as Ed Sheeran himself. It’s an improvement on the original, to be honest.

Stepping away from Ed Sheeran’s most favourite tiny loop pedal, Charli’s own version - which she performs on this week’s episode of US show Lip Sync Battle - combines some questionable cargo shorts with a dance routine in front of some gym lockers. It’s really something.

Watch a preview - potentially the weirdest 45 seconds of video in existence -below. The entire spectacle airs this Thursday on Paramount Network, at 9.30PM (ET).
