Ed Sheeran’s episode of Carpool Karaoke is finally here and it’s as brilliant as you’d expect! During the British singer’s appearance on the iconic Late Late Show With James Corden sketch, he not only sang, but also cleared up any speculation around a very special skill that he has involving — what else? — candy.
James Corden debuted the long-awaited episode on Tuesday (June 6), as a part of his three-day residency in London. It features Sheeran singing songs like, “The Shape of You,” Sing,” and Justin Bieber’s “Love Yourself.” Of course, Sheeran had to sing One Direction’s “What Makes You Beautiful” with Corden as well, and it was amazing.
The funniest part about Sheeran’s episode, however, was when Corden challenged the 26-year-old singer to a candy eating contest.
“Now, I want to clear something up that I read about you and I don’t know if this is true. There is a snack in Britain called Maltesers,” Corden asked the redheaded crooner. “Is it true that you can fit 47 Maltesers in your mouth?”
Sheeran didn’t hesitate with his answer simply saying, “Yes.” Luckily for the “Castle on the Hill” singer, Corden had a giant jar full of the chocolate malted milk balls and pulled them out to see just how many Sheeran could fit in his mouth.
While Corden started out with him and managed to fit a decent amount in his mouth, he tapped out at 25 Maltesers.
Sheeran, on the other hand, managed to fit 55 Maltesers in his mouth with ease and it was insane. Seriously, he put 55 candies in his mouth before pulling over in the car and spitting them out!
“How are you doing this?” Corden asked freaking out. “I don’t know how you’ve done that! That was insane, Ed.”
We don’t know how he did it either, but it was hilarious and rather impressive!
