Next time you feel like belting out an Ed Sheeran song, keep an eye out...

What happens when you cross the nicest man in pop with the nicest lady on daytime TV? Answer: The nicest viral video on the internet. Because Ed Sheeran and Ellen Degeneres just teamed up to give 8 year-old Kai the surprise of his life.

Kai appeared on "Ellen" to give her an adorable Valentine's card and sing his own emotional rendition of Ed's "Thinking Out Loud"; but didn't realise that the singer was sitting behind him listening the entire time.

Kai's reaction when he realises that one of his musical heroes was sitting in on his performance is ridiculously cute; so much so that the internet is all over this video. In less than a day since it was posted, it's had well over 2 million views and counting.
