Ed Sheeran won Best Pop Solo Performance for 'Shape of You' last night the Grammys, but it wasn't without controversy.
It's been argued in the past that the Grammys are more about popularity rather than a measurement of good music, and after Ed's win last night, that's an accusation being thrown around again.

Either way, congratulations to Ed on his Grammy!
