Hey guys for Complex news, I'm Natasha Martinez.
Sometimes when opposites attract it can be a little awkward. Case and point, Ed Sheeran sharing the stage with Lil Uzi Vert at the 2017 VMA awards.
Ed Sheeran had the lovely task of following Kendrick Lamar's explosive performance of 'DNA' and 'Humble' so to up the ante, he surprised fans with bringing Lil Uzi Vert to perform and unofficial remix of 'Shape of You' and XO TOUR Llif3.
The reaction from the crowd was mixed to say the least. Ludacris looked into it, but the woman next to him was confused. Pink was also getting a kick out of the duo, but Cardi B's reaction takes the cake. The Bodak Yellow artist left nothing to the imagination with her facial expression that translated how the majority of people watching felt.
However the pair is not as unlikely as they seem. Sheeran has been very open about his love for hip hop. He's even mentioned wanting to collab with Chance the Rapper, and Uzi recently sat down with Beats 1 Radio’s Zane Lowe, telling him his plans to take his freestyle approach to creating a rock album.
Uzi is of course fresh off the release of his highly anticipated debut album Luv is Rage 2. He took home a moon man for song of the summer for XO Tour Lif3' and Ed Sheeran took home an award for artist of the year.
