The duo wasn’t done yet. Sheeran, unconcerned with just one song, persuaded Eminem to stay for another. They then launched into a heartfelt rendition of Eminem’s “Stan,” with Sheeran taking on the Dido portion of the song. This was not their first time performing this song together; they had previously performed it at Eminem’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. The crowd’s response was thunderous, their cheers echoing through the stadium like a roaring sea.
