Jennifer Aniston Pays Tribute to Bill Paxton and More Stars in Emotional Oscars 2017 In Memoriam Segment Backed by Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, Ed Sheeran performed his smash hit on NBC's The Tonight Show Monday.
It was part of the "Classroom Instruments" series, which kicked off in 2012 with Carly Rae Jepsen and "Call Me Maybe." Other musicians who have participated in the recurring segment since Jepsen include Christina Aguilera ("Your Body"), Mariah Carey ("All I Want for Christmas is You"), Idina Menzel ("Let It Go"), Meghan Trainor ("All About That Bass"), Adele ("Hello"), Madonna ("Holiday") and Metallica ("Enter Sandman"), among others.
Along with "Castle on the Hill," Sheeran's "Shape of You" is one of two lead singles off his album Divide, out March 3.
But, as he confessed to Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show in January, "Shape of You" was a "random" last-minute add.
This was the last song that was finished, and I just didn't put two and two together that this was even going to be on the album.
