Welp, Ed Sheeran just made an entire nation swoon.

After flaunting his ballroom-ready moves in the heavily choreographed visual for his latest x single “Thinking Out Loud,” the English singer-songwriter took his romantic track to the stage of X Factor UK over the weekend.

Of course, the talented crooner sounded fantastic while singing his sweet song to the wild yelps, howls and whistles of the crowd throughout, but it was a mixture of crowd participation and well-timed cinematography that was actually the coolest part of the performance. As the camera slowly panned around Ed, the stadium lit up with thousands of bright lights shining from both the crowd and a handful of on-stage participants, creating the effect of millions of stars surrounding the singer — err, or A Million Lights, as Cheryl would agree. Check out the performance up top.
