This is turning out to be quite a week for Ed Sheeran!
On Monday, Aug. 19, NBC announced the Grammy-nominated singer would be joining season five of The Voice as a mentor for Christina Aguilera's team. Later that day, news broke that Taylor Swift's Red tourmate would actually be headlining his own show at New York City's Madison Square Garden on Nov. 1.
Mr. Sheeran, unfortunately, didn't get to announce his exciting MSG news on his terms. Entertainment personality Ralphie Aversa let the cat out of the bag on his radio show, citing a month-old interview where Ed talked about the gig.
The "A Team" singer clearly got word of Ralphie breaking the news and tweeted Monday night, "Regardless of someone jumping the gun, I am making a very special announcement tomorrow."
"I know it's just another news story," Ed replied, "but it's the biggest thing in my career to date, wanted to announce it properly thats all."

"My dad always said you haven't made it til you've played MSG so it's a massive honour," he added adorably.
It's the little things!
(The Voice and E! are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
