A year ago, Ed Sheeran recruited Beyoncé to breathe new life into his loved-up ballad, “Perfect.” Rereleased as “Perfect Duet,” the song had never been performed live—that is, until last weekend.
At the recent Global Citizen Festival in Johannesburg, South Africa, the pair put on a stripped-back performance, assisted by a choir. As always, Beyoncé looked like a queen, dressed up in a striking fuschia gown, while Sheeran kept things casual as he wielded an acoustic guitar. Their vocals and harmonies were top-notch, and the sound of the massive crowd singing along is enough to give you chills.
Check out the performance below:
