5SOS praise Ed Sheeran's cover of 'She Looks So Perfect': 'It's literally crazy'

Australian heartthrobs 5 Seconds Of Summer recently had their hit single 'She Looks So Perfect' covered by superstar Ed Sheeran and they have revealed it was an honour to think that he picked that song to perform.

Member Calum Hood told Capital FM that it was really exciting to hear Sheeran's cover of 'She Looks So Perfect' because they all look up to him as a musician and are inspired by his career:

"That was literally crazy when we found out because we started out covering his songs and he's such a massive inspiration for our songwriting, because he's such a great songwriter. He was the first gig I ever went to, in Sydney, so it was just an amazing feeling."

The band's drummer, Ashton Irwin, also tweeted a message of thanks to the British singer-songwriter for choosing their track to perform at the Capital FM session: "@edsheeran loved what you did with SLSP man, so huge for us that you covered it, we are blown away, you are an absolute legend."

Upon seeing the tweet, Sheeran publicly replied and wrote: "Ah man, it's such a chune, legend."
