Listen to Ed Sheeran Radio and more on the free Audacy app
Performing in Slim Shady's hometown, it was his first performance since he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last November. Joking with fans in the crowd, Sheeran began to play the 8 Mile hit, "Lose Yourself" adding that he had just began rehearsing the song that day. “We’ll see how it goes," he said before starting the music. As the track played, Eminem came out on the stage and was met with a surprised but ecstatic crowd.
The two worked together to get through the first verse and chorus of the song before outing Eminem for only wanting to perform one song. "Can I just say, he was gonna come out and do one song, but I said you can’t come out in Detroit and just do one song," he said then asking the crowd, "do you want another song?"
And of course he stayed for another, the two broke out into the 2000 hit "Stan" having Sheeran perform Dido's parts. After sharing some hugs, Eminem said "thank you, Ed. I appreciate you, Detroit. I love you. Peace!” before walking off stage with his middle fingers raised as a salute to fans.
Before jumping into his next song, the UK singer-songwriter said “I don’t know about you, but that was pretty awesome." Stamping this as one of his most memorable stops, he continued “this has been such a memorable night. I will never forget it."
