Some people aren’t happy Ed Sheeran won at this year’s Grammys

Ed Sheeran won two awards at this year’s Grammys, namely: Best Pop Vocal Album for his album Divide and Best Pop Solo Performance for his song Shape of You. For the Best Pop Solo Performance award, the singer was up against Kelly Clarkson (for Love So Soft), Kesha (for Praying), Lady Gaga (for Million Reasons), and P!nk (for What About Us).

It was reported that there were “sounds of disappointment with slight boos from the audience” when it was announced that Sheeran won the Best Pop Solo Performance category. The singer, however, wasn’t present to receive the award or hear the disappointed reactions from the crowd.

Ed Sheeran posted a photo of his cat on Instagram along with his thank you message when he found out about the news:

A lot of people on Twitter were unhappy that Sheeran won over the other nominees, especially because the other nominated songs were about becoming stronger in the face of adversary while Shape of You is about a woman’s body:
