Ed Sheeran opens up about his Grammy Award snub

Ellen DeGeneres wasn't shy about feeling outraged that Ed Sheeran's latest album ÷ (Divide) wasn't nominated for Album of the Year, or 'Shape of You' not being nominated for Song of the Year at the Grammy's.

But singer Ed Sheeran had his own feelings towards missing out the big nominations at next year's awards when he appeared on Ellen.

“My outlook on it is just some years you have your year and some years you don’t have your year, and maybe this year isn’t my year,” he explained.

When Ellen said she couldn’t get “Shape of You” out of her head, he explained that was the victory he cared about.

"But that's the point," he said. "That's where you win. That's where the validation comes from. You actually see people enjoying the songs. I'd rather have a lifetime of people coming up to me and saying... 'This song is my wedding song,' or 'this song was my first kiss.'" 

Ed Sheeran is still up for two other Grammy awards; Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance for 'Shape of You.'
