Old Video Showing Teen Ed Sheeran Failing TV Audition Is Making the Rounds Again [VIDEO]

For years, a video of an unknown, 16-year-old Ed Sheeran failing an audition for a British TV show has been making the rounds and it’s back again.

Here’s the backstory: When ED SHEERAN was a 16-year-old unknown, he tried out for a musical TV series called “Britannia High”. The producers loved Ed’s musical talent.  One of them even calls him “the real thing.” But on the dance floor, he underwhelms.  One woman watches his steps and says, quote, “Not even an option.”  Another says, quote, “Ed hasn’t a clue what he’s doing.  But he’s trying.”

Ed’s musical abilities got him through one round of auditions, but ultimately it wasn’t enough to land a part on the show.
