14 Reasons Ed Sheeran Needs To Win Best New Artist Grammy

From saving kittens to writing the perfect love song, MTV News has come up with 14 reasons why Ed Sheeran should win Best New Artist.

The Grammy Award for Best New Artist is one of the most competitive awards of the night, and this year, the nominees run the gamut from hip-hop to country to experimental.

With James Blake, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Ed Sheeran, and country singer Kacey Musgraves all in the running, it’s anybody’s trophy.

However, if it were solely up to me to decide the winner for Best New Artist at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, it would have to go to everyone’s favorite redhead, Ed Sheeran. The talented singer/songwriter has taken the world by storm, and we aren’t just talking about his music.

Need more proof? Here are 14 reasons why Ed Sheeran should win Best New Artist.

1. He Saves Kittens

We had to give a round of a-paws for Ed Sheeran, who saved an adorable kitten earlier this week. Ed took to Twitter to share the news that he adopted a cat, got him a bed, bought him some snacks and named him Graham. Ed then set up Graham with his own Twitter account where he’s been posting selfies, taking pics with dad and just having “general kitten chat.”

2. He’s One Of The Sexiest Men Alive

Last year Ed was featured in People magazine’s annual “Sexiest Man Alive” issue, and while most men may have found it flattering, Ed found it “quite funny.”

“I don’t know who the voting party are for People, but thank you. It’s very kind. But I’m sure I’m the only person on this list who has a belly. Though I guess Austin Powers was considered a sex symbol, and we share similar physical-appearance qualities,” Sheeran said in the magazine. “I brush my teeth though.”
