In the first of his two scheduled appearances on the 2013 Grammy Awards telecast, Elton John teamed up with Ed Sheeran to perform the latter's Song of the Year candidate 'The A Team.'

The song comes from Sheeran's 2011 album '+.' Compared to the rest of the evening's overblown, prop-heavy parade of incongruous medleys, it was a rather refreshing display of simple melodic appeal. We are extremely disappointed the song made no mention of Murdock, Face or B.A. Baracus, however.

You may remember Sheeran from his appearance alongside Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason during an all-star performance of 'Wish You Were Here' at the 2012 London Olympics.
