Ed Sheeran might be a dream collaborator for a lot of artists, but who is his favorite collab of all time? It’s a pretty big name!

The “Shape of You” singer opened up about his best musical collaboration, and TV moment in the new CBS’ Grammys’ Greatest Stories: a 60th Anniversary Special — which aired on Friday — and noted his 2015 performance with not one, but three legendary artists as his top moment.

In 2015, Sheeran performed his hit song, “Thinking Out Loud,” with John Mayer, The Roots and Herbie Hancock, and it was definitely the show of a lifetime for the British crooner.

“I remember I was like, ‘I’m gonna chuck out three names I want to play with and hopefully one of them comes off,’ and yeah, they all said yes,” Sheeran recalled in the TV special via E! Online. “That was probably one of my top three TV performances I feel that I’ve done ever. I remember finishing it being like, ‘That was good.'”

We’re sure his fans could name even more special TV performances and magical shows that Sheeran has done throughout his career, but teaming up with Mayer, The Roots and Hancock is a pretty big deal, so we understand it as Sheeran’s top choice.

Now if only he spilled the details on all of his top performances, then we could reminisce about them all — and then listen to all of his hits on repeat, because one song from Sheeran just isn’t enough.

Which of Sheeran’s TV performances is your favorite? Who would you like to see him collaborate with next?
