Ed Sheeran stopped by the Mercedes-Benz Interview Lounge to catch up with Ryan Seacrest before hitting the stage at the 2021 iHeartRadio Jingle Ball presented by Capital One.

Getting in the festive spirit, Ed Sheeran not only released, "Merry Christmas," his holiday duet with Sir Elton John, but also brought out some jingle bells to perform the song live for the first time tonight! Ed revealed that Elton called him last Christmas to say that he wanted to do one more holiday song and that he wanted to do it with Ed! While that was the intent, Ed also revealed that they wrote two and will have another holiday song next year.

When it comes to Christmas music, it's Michael Bublé's music that puts Ed in the holiday spirit. And we agree!

In addition to "Merry Christmas," Ed opened his Jingle Ball set with "Shiver," going into "Perfect" with the help of the audience, and closed his set with a roaring rendition of "Bad Habits."
