Ed Sheeran: 'I don't know if I could sit behind a buzzer and tell people if they could make it or not'
'Lego House' hitmaker Ed Sheeran has revealed that he isn't tempted to join the panel of a show like 'The X Factor' or 'The Voice' because he doesn't feel as though he has enough years of experience under his belt.
During a new interview with Capital FM, the superstar was asked if he would ever consider working as a judge on a vocal or music talent show and admitted that he finds that concept a little strange:
“I don’t know, I’d do the judges houses or something but I don’t know if I could ever be – yet – the person who sits behind a buzzer and tells you whether you can make it or not.”
Sheeran went onto add that being a 23-year-old is the main thing that prevents him from thinking he has the kind of authority he needs to give advice on how to sing or how to carve out a lasting career in the industry:
“Just because I find it a bit odd, me being a 23-year-old. I did 'The Voice' in L.A. with Christina Aguilera and I was telling people twice my age how to sing and I found that really weird. Because I was like ‘I haven’t been doing it as long as you so, actually, you probably know more than me’. So I think until I’m at a stage where you’re Louis Walsh and you’ve been in the industry for like 20, 30 years… I would listen to his opinion.”
